I made Dam-et a cheesecake for his 23rd birthday. If the link to my FB post works, you can see photos here.

I guess. Well, without the beer and the pork pie.
I'd been watching the Hobbit movies and as Gandalf and Thorin had had a ploughman's at the Prancing Pony
I guess it kinda wedged in the back of my mind and ... wedge .... mmm cheese.

When I worked in the UK the ploughman's didn't include a pork pie. I guess the beer was a given if you were ordering it in a pub. Very Happy

Certainly a standard ploughman's didn't have a pork pie but there were all sorts of variations on the theme to be had in different establishments.

On the subject of cheese I go, in the main for the strong soft cheeses such as epoises, pont laveque et al. I love the tang of Danish blue and its ewe s milk cousin roqforte. The best chedders eg Cornish cruncher are very fine and a reserve Gouda or gruyere takes some beating. But it takes a strong nerve to eat a good slice of the stinking bisop!

Precisely! I was chatting to my neighbour just the other day about the exorborant price of celeriac, and he thought I was talking about celery, and starts telling me about a ploughman's he had at pub near by. Ploughman's! says me! So I asked about the pork pie and rightly enough he said pretty much the same.

How the world doth turn! Laughing

Laughing I'd like them a lot more if they did include one by definition. Very Happy (Not that I have anything against them per se, but I'd rather eat a couple of pork pies. Laughing )
