The drained looking salmon and boiled vegetable medley. Tres anglais (from the 1950s).
Apple sponge and Bird Eye custard.
Given a meal voucher for the canteen while auditioning for BBC’s The Restaurant, I decided to put the kitchen through it’s paces by ordering starters, main, salad and dessert.
The starter: tomato soup. It had little taste.
Then a simple salad. Out of a bag with some cucumber, tomato and red pepper. Can’t go too wrong with that.
Main course was salmon on a bed of vegetables. The vegetables, a medley of cauliflower, carrots, peas were over-boiled and the salmon unseasoned.
My sister ordered chips. They were oven fries, thick and powdery.
Dessert consisted of apple sponge with custard. This was entirely a time-travel back to school dinners. I seem to remember you got something like this on Thursdays. (Friday was my favourite when there was apple crumble and custard). We used to get a generic stodgy pudding and Bird’s custard. Liked the custard.
