Mock turtle soup could certainly look like that.

I thought I had brass in pocket but it turned out to be tin foil.

@DnT 0455. Yup! It’s Mock Turtle soup.

Beautiful soup, so lovely and green,
Served in a piping hot tureen,
Beautiful soup – beautiful soup.

Anyhow. Whatever it is it looks pretty bloody delicious.

My guess = Mulligan Stew.

Speaking of Lewis Carroll. (1832 – 1898)

“The time has come,” the walrus said. “To talk of many things:
Of shoes and ships and sealing wax –
Of cabbages and kings –
Of why the sea is boiling hot –
And whether pigs have wings.”

The real translation is “Official Buddha Jumping Wall,” apparently a famous dish from Fujian province. How this got mangled to ‘pretenders’ is beyond me…

KFC. Kongkong Fricasseed Chicken.

Kongkong (Tokpisin) word for Asian – mainly referring to Chinese.

Maybe it is all an illusion. Buddha may only be pretending to jump the wall.
(From the statues I have seen of him, he doesn’t look all that aerodynamic)

In fact: Looking at it as an engineering problem, I doubt whether his thrust/weight ratio would allow him to achieve V1, let alone V2

Hmmmm! I would estimate his flying speed, and stall speed, to be identical.

Back to sanity:

Traditionally, this Fujian dish from the Qing Dynasty comprises up to 30 ingredients, including chicken, ham, taro, mushrooms and shark’s fin. Our recipe features more accessible ingredients, while maintaining a high-protein hotpot. The origins of this dish’s name are debatable. One story describes how the meal’s rich aroma could tempt even Buddha to stop meditating and jump over a wall to find it.

As they say in China:

Where there is a wanton, there is a huawei.

I think I’ll stay with the stew of trash…same sh*t and a lot cheaper as well.

“Waiter! What is this dish – cassoulet?”
“Why sir it’s bean stew”
“I don’t give a damn what it’s been – I want to know what it is now!!!!!”

The steam is the most nutritious part of the meal.

@DrLex | 8:19 am: I’m confused: is there an “unofficial” Buddha?

@DnT 2057.
Yes indeed! It’s Chris Handy. (Ex Rugby Union Front rower – international) His nickname was Buddha, because the physiques were identical.

BTW. He couldn’t fly autonomously either.

This seems to be the new wave of cuisine.
The other official Pretenders would even sing its praise.
(Chrissie Hynde’s veganism notwithstanding)
