Local man, Martin Shuttlecock, 27 and startlingly ancient looking for his age, Cordon Verde chef extraordinaire, has pronounced his latest experimental sandwich, a roaring success, following three days of trials.
Shuttlecock's latest delicacy consists of a muffin, similar to those used at a well known fast food outlet, which sells McMuffins at breakfast time, but he says that his new fried egg and quadruple black pudding muffin makes for a delicious eating experience at any point between getting up and going to bed.
"It's the perfect snack solution is this," Shuttlecock told reporters. "You can have the fried egg and black pudding muffin at any time - you could even get up in the middle of the night and knock one up. They're scrumptious. Truly scrumptious,"
Shuttlecock recommends that sandwich makers use a muffin, with a lightly fried egg, so that the yolk is still soft - but not too soft, or it will explode when the consumer bites into it. Like it did when Shuttlecock first tried the prototype, splashing his jumper with egg yolk.
For the final flourish, put four slices of shallow fried black pudding on top, whack the top half of the muffin on, and Bob's your uncle!
"The beauty of this creation," Shuttlecock announced. Is that the black pudding performs a dual role - as a filling, and also as a slightly savoury seasoning. It's an unorthodox pairing for a sandwich filling, but it works a treat. Probably best not to have too many though, or you probably won't be able shit for a month or two, at least. I'm quite proud of my latest creation, and will certainly be including the recipe in my new cook book."
Shuttlecock's long suffering wife, Anne, was left fuming by the revelation.
"He said it was a great success?" Anne raged. "He may well have come up with the original idea, but he hasn't even made one yet! I made it! We've got a new cooker, and I won't let the daft bastard near it. He's a right messy sod in the kitchen. So I've banned him. Probably forever. I'm sick and tired of cleaning up after the messy get."
Shuttlecock's new cookbook, tentatively titled: 'Shuttlecock's New Cookbook' will be available in all good book shops, providing he can find somebody daft enough to publish it.
More as we get it.
