Ray Mears - My Fake Diary
Thursday, 1 January 2009
Let the New Year in with a bang : literally.
Had me mate Gordon Hillman and Jamie Oliver round to the camp for a mid-night barbie and a few pints of nettle beer and a nogging of ostrich wine.
That pair of sods got pissed and started arguing over the contents of a true embutido and promptly starting mixing their own ingredients and stuffing it into a few lengths of pig's intestines I had hanging up to cure in the kiliwacky tree.
They fired up the Dutch oven and bunged a dozen rolls of embutido in to cook through.
Half an hour later there's one hell of a bang, Dutch over gets launched into orbit, film crew splattered with embutido sausage stuffing. Very messy. Good laugh.
Nobody really hurt but one BBC cameraman actually did crap his pants.
Checked the ingredients list they'd used. Gordon had dipped abundantly into me tin of gunpowder in mistake for black pepper.
Cracking good laugh all round.
