The Avengers Has Turned the Internet Shawarma Crazy

Words cannot describe my love for shawarma, if you aren’t familiar with shawarma it’s chicken or lamb or more recently beef cooked on a huge rotating skewer rolled up in flat bread with some vegetables sauce (Garlic sauce or tahina depending on the meat) and occasionally french fries (Although I think the french fries are not part of the traditional recipe) and it is what I grew up eating. It’s a staple food in the middle east, it costs about 50p (I reackon 75 cents?) and it absolutely delicious.

I’ve had shawarma in London, Glasgow and even Tokyo I think if you told me I could only eat one food for the rest of my life I’d pick shawarma. But enough about that. I’ve noticed the internet has picked up on shawarma because of a passing reference to it in the Avengers.

This can only be a good thing as it will hopefully lead to shawarma being more mainstream, which means that I will have access to it wherever I go!

Steak Bouquet: For the Person Who Loves Meat as Much as You Love Them

Not only is this a good idea but if someone asks you what you got your partner for Valentines day you could reply with “I gave her the beef” which I think is a euphemism and a half.

This was created by Antony Bowness of Quality Standard Beef and Lamb which is a butchers in Teweksbury in Gloucestershire:

I get asked every year what I’d like for Valentine’s Day and I never know what to suggest. Soppy cards aren’t really my thing and it got me thinking about what I could make for other men out there like me. I had a ‘Eureka’ moment one day when a customer came in with a bunch of flowers. I started playing around with the idea and realized it was actually quite easy to do! I mean if you can make a dress from meat, then why not a bunch of roses?
