Cooking: Done in 10 seconds flat - high heat, frying pan, no oil, 5 seconds side one and 5 seconds side two is how we like it. Put on the extractor fan! Doesn't take long, seriously this is a different beast than you may be used to so treat as you would a loved one. We eat it without cooking it but that's our secret.
Pairing: Beef burgers, mussels, wrapped around scallops, fish soups. Noshed on a roll is good too. Stuffed into chicken, flash fried for a quick family snackcident, figs and nectarines, peaches and greeky type yoghurt stuff ... you know Mediterranean stylee...anything, mix it up folks.
History: Said to be favoured by the ancient Celtic warlords from around here. Mainly eaten to give strength and insight and was the weapon of choice before the Celts kicked Roman ass at Mons Grapus just over the hill, a 'faodail', traditional, ancient, secret recipe. Made its contemporary incarnation debut at BrewDog AGM 2016 where it was issued as Jet Black Assassin and later as Jack Kerouac's Kiss at the Brew Dog Beatnik Brew Day - 2016. Featured on BBC Radio "Out of Doors' and acclaimed on BBC2s' Best in Shop TV show - go on and try it, it's cracking!
