Chef d'Oeuvre

Rose had been delighted to discover that the TARDIS had a curious literary defence mechanism. Anyone with a bent for folding pages, scribbling in the margins or otherwise defacing books, were nudged towards the section specialising in celebrity chef books from her own time.

It didn't take Rose long to discover that the comments were more interesting than the contents. There were numerous notes about alternative ingredients, an omelette that had been mistaken for a weapon and an interesting debate about the sexuality of cabbages; although, the reminder blood is thicker than water, adjust recipes accordingly was a little disturbing.

Weird. I was wondering if black pudding was made in the US or an import. It sounds like it's probably a specialty item if it's made at all.

I wonder if she would have had more luck dealing with a small town butcher (that actually is a butcher, rather than a glorified delicatessan) instead of a city butcher. Maybe chasing up small family concerns that make salami, sausages or smoked meat, I'd expect they'd know of someone. Having a chat to the local Scotish expats should have pointed her in the right direction.

It's funny the things that end up being difficult to find.
