The only mistake Dave made was taking Turkey because it's shit. (And obviously the mistake of eating with food nazis). You went to a fucking buffet. That's what a carvery is..it's not fancy, and

I’m going to go to a world buffet tomorrow because of this thread. I’ll get an item from each country and pour gravy over the lot. Yes, there will be photos.

First course  Same plate for second course   Your rules were delicious

As for buffets dont get me started. I was at a buffet before Christmas and the sandwiches were all like this. Who the fuck is eating sandwiches like that and who thinks that is acceptable.

Were they ALL like that? I've seen it happen when someone has been making, like, 200 sandwiches and haven't been paying attention when finishing them but it's normally only a couple and I've never seen them actually go out to customers.

If it's a deliberate choice then, aye, it's fucking stupid. What's the point even using two different kinds of bread if you aren't even going to give people a choice between them? It's just being awkward for the sake of it.

Lion, you've outed yourself as the Wrong-Way Toilet Sitter of food. You barged in here with a way of eating out ('ello!) that you deem as 'normal' only to find out that it is you who are the weirdo in this situation.

Every sandwich was half brown and half white bread? May as well pour your fucking soup all over it...

Also Indian and Chinese food go really well together. You keep living like a repressed food puritan with your arbitrary rules.

EVERY FUCKING SANDWICH!

I fully accept that the rules are arbitrary Chest, even slightly puritanical and I am prepared to admit that in the eyes of some of you it makes me "sit on the porcelain to shit" weird but they are the rules we stick to.

The only rule I've got is never pour soup over the rest of your food like it's a sauce.

This is the first I've heard of people doing this, and it's made me sad.

Definitely fucking not. Why would you do that. I'd never eat chinese and indian food together. 

Because that's how buffets work! It's a free-for-all, and all rules are out the window. You pick up whatever looks good, lob it on your plate, and figure out the rest later.

What's the alternative? Going up to the buffet and getting the two or three bits of Chinese food, then back up for the Indian, then back up for some garlic bread and tiny sausages? You want to get everything in one trip.

I didn’t. You started yourself in the opening post when you mentioned a carvery.

1. Anyone who goes "big plate" at a Carvery is a fucking pig.

As long as the person finishes it all its OK by me, I hate food waste. My best friend, someone I owe a lot to and who has helped me through some bad times, has the big plate from time to time he never leaves even a pea on his plate. 

I'm a fan of turkey and I use turkey mince as a substitute for beef mince quite often. 

Not a big fan of pasta, so instead of spaghetti I use rice instead, rice bolognese

Surely it's standard practice to go for at least two meats at a carvery? Beef and gammon for me please. As for the other rules, you use your mash, veg and Yorkshires to create plate sectors so you don't have to get gravy on your cauliflower cheese or your cranberry sauce if you're going turkey.

I assume that a JRC Global Buffet is some sort of southern fancy dan restaurant as the nearest is over a hundred miles south of me. 

There a Cosmo in Manchester, and very fine it is too.
