That Lib Dem menu in full


Camden Lib Dems have put together a new cookbook, Serve a Liberal Helping. Hunter couldn't resist putting together a Lib Dem menu. Hopefully, this will be included in their next book.

Starter
Soup of the day (stirred by Mark Pack)

Main course
Smoked Kippers in a whiskey coulis (served by Charles Kennedy)

Dessert
Iced vanilla buns served with lashings of chocolate sauce
or
Chocolate Log
(served by Mark Oaten)

Wine
Red/White/whatever
(served by Charles Kennedy)

Port
'Crusty Old Git'
(recommended by our Head Chef, Ming Campbell)

What would you suggest?

The pudding would in fact be "Mint Humbug"

SIR Ming to you!

I could not possibly be Head Chef: I only do jobs involving foreign affairs.

Main course:
Cheval flambe - a la two horse race

LibDem HQ said...

The book's full title is actually:
"Serve a Liberal Helping of Hypocrisy"

The subtitle is:
"only the LibDems can cook around here"

Featherstone Chicken – the picture in the book shows something luscious, juicy and fresh. In reality, you end up with a dried-up, leathery old bird.


Neville Collins Surprise… [ "And NOW Collins is trying to pass himself off as a CHEF!!, but I know he hasn’t got a clue about cooking!!" / "Yes I have" / "No I haven’t" / Yes I have" / "No I, errr, you, err… arrgh!! Busted!" DELETE! DELETE!! DELETE!!! ]


Soup of the Day – different flavours depending on whether you are standing to the left or the right of the chef. Either way it’s unpalatable.


Simon Hughes Stew – Sometimes has sausages in it, although this was denied until recently.
