  1. That's not a ploughman's lunch that's just cheese sandwiches.


    He is speaking English! He is an Aussie! :)

    Even though I live in the US I want to make this and give it a try! Excellent video!

  6. Don't know that i could get with the pickled onion thing. I'm not a big onion fan to begin with and having one on a sandwich makes me want to wretch. The other "salad" one looked like something I would try even though it's a little foreign. They both were presented and made well, though. 

  7. Whats a good British ale? American here.

  8. You said 'cut the cheese'!

    Looks great!  I think that I might be able to get pickled onions in the USA from  Love this recipe.  Visited England once 25 years ago and I know that I left a piece of my heart there.  Recipes like this still make me smile till this day.  Thank you. :)

    can I ask why you were showing the rashers and you didn't use them?

    A TRADITIONAL ploughman's lunch is ENGLISH and it is of 'a hunk of crusty bread', a large piece of aged cheddar cheese with or without a pickled onion. No egg. No cucumber. No lettuce. It was eaten in the field by the farmer and the farm workers. Nothing fancy yet delicious even today ESPECIALLY if it is not tarted up. Drank with ENGLISH beer.

  16. Are you Australian or British?

  17. This looks great! Next time I visit your fair country I'll order this. And with cumumber!
