I received a letter today from a Ms Lingard of Wetwang, it reads;
Although I’ve enjoyed the Vale of Mowbray Condiment World Cup, I must say it has caused deep upset that Soy Sauce is included in this list. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve often used the salty wet stuff in stir fries and eggy fried rice dishes, but you made bold claims at the start of this competition that these condiments go well with Pork Pies or Scotch Eggs! Never could I bring myself to dip any of these picnic staples into the watery brown liquid! Sort it out.
I haven’t replied yet, I thought it best to try it out myself and give her a full review.
Yea she has a point, I’ve just dunked a whole scotch egg into a bowl of Soy Sauce, as I lifted it out the sauce dripped off and has made a complete mess of my Daily Star. But oh my, what a taste sensation, the rich umami saltiness with the egg and sausage meat of the scotch egg is A.MA.ZING! Sorry, Ms Lingard, you’re on your own on this one.

Sorry, must leave now, my kettle is booked in for a service.
