Re: Food That Tastes Better/Worse Over Time
I think most takeaway that has a sauce tastes better the day after. Proper chance to marinate I guess. I'm no expert when it comes to takeaway cooking, but in my head I see a big pot of stuff cooking and then your ingredients, be that chicken, prawn or whatever you're having are added at the death (with a dollop of special stuff) to make it a chicken or prawn whatever to order. May not be that way. But I dont imagine my particular dish is lovingly crafted from scratch. That extra time all the ingredients get to spend together makes the world of difference.
One of the best Indians Ive ever had was a cheap as chips buffet type setup in a little place in Thatcham. The lamb curry was cooking for hours and tasted ridiculously good.
Prawn crackers. Big fluffy bastards from the Chinese. The day after, slightly stale. Beautiful.
When God said to the both of us "Which one of you wants to be Sugar Ray?" I guess I didnt raise my hand fast enough
