    That's only one cheese, no such thing as too much.
    Friggin melting pot must have some rule though, they always seem to ask you to leave once you hit the fifth pot.

    Pretty sure it was:
    Lose your piece of bread in the cheese fondue once, and it's five of the best with a stick.
    Lose your piece of bread twice, and it's twenty lashes with a whip. Lose it three times, and it's into the lake with weights tied to your feet.

    I feel like I remember seeing Richard speak about Kettle chips coming out with someone else as well, maybe Sara Pascoe? He's a fan of the Kettle chip.

    I've had fondue in Zurich. I love cheese but I wouldn't be tempted to try it again. It was boring and smelled terrible. Didn't finish, left hungry.

    ARE YOU TAKING THE PISS? Cheese fondue was NOT invented in Zürich. Nor is it a typical, traditional dish there. Fondue was invented in isolated chalets when food got scarce and all they had where cheese rinds and stale bread. They had to make do. Fondue is nothing fancy.

    • David Davidson
      David Davidson 4 months ago +3

      Nope. The first written example of cheese fondue is from a zurich published book from 1699. The "rustic origins" you speak of was a directed marketing effort by the Swiss Cheese Union to bolster their cheese sales amongst the working class, who generally thought fondue was a bit snobbish. So they fabricated less ostentatious origins.

    Frank is talking bollocks about the tea bags. They've been around for far longer than 1961.

    • lakelady57
      lakelady57 6 months ago +4

      It was Tetley in 1953 that drove the introduction of tea bags in Britain, but other companies soon caught up. In the early 1960s, tea bags made up less than 3 per cent of the British market, but this has been growing steadily ever since.

    • James Robertson
      James Robertson 6 months ago +1

      Well, I don't really care who it was, but Tetley claim it was them (so don't shoot the messenger). :) www.tetleyteaacademy.co.uk/a-brief-history-of-the-teabag

    • puckerings
      puckerings 6 months ago +1

      That's incorrect. Lipton patented a new type of tea bag in 1952, for example. Who knows how long they used an older type before that. Hard details are difficult to come by, but if you want to believe that no one in the UK thought of trying tea bags for several decades, I don't know what to tell you.

    • James Robertson
      James Robertson 6 months ago +5

      While tea-bags were invented a long time before 1961, Tetley were the first company to introduce them to the UK in 1953. I can quite believe the same adverts were being played on TV in the early 60s.

      Exactly. I came to say exactly the same thing. Leave it to Frank Skinner to speak with authority on something he vaguely (mis)remembers from his childhood.

    I watched all the episodes of Travel Man and I always wondered what Richard would have to say about Switzerland since I'm Swiss (I even go to uni in Zürich where they sat on that big blue chaise longue and I know the city itself very well).
    It's funny to hear literally no complaint from Richard, but I kinda expected that he would like it here :D

    • azapota1
      azapota1 6 months ago +1

      Actually literally LOL...I had to look up chitterlings to see what they were. Turns out they're the same as chitlins, which I've only ever heard from black Americans from the Deep South. They sounded gross, so I never really looked into exactly what's in them...well, now I know. God, how I wish I'd just noticed the syntactical similarity between "chitterling" and "chitlin" before rushing off to Google! It *is* true: we *are* all too quick to look stuff up and not use our brains! Oh nooooo!! (To be fair, though, I'd only ever heard the word, never read it.)
      As far as blue cheese, I'm the opposite to you: I find that everyone around me seems to at least be okay with it, and I'm looking on in horror, wanting to scream, "That's *MOOOOOOOLD* ! What are you doing eating *MOOOOOOOLD* ?!" But I never do, partly because...well, manners!...but mostly because I *know* that some smartass will just pipe up with the old "All cheese is mold" line. From now on, I'm just gonna cite your example as proof that it's not really cheese. Thank you so much for all the arguments I'm gonna win now! =^D

    • redcrimson718
      redcrimson718 6 months ago +1

      azapota1 I do feel a bit weird... and I actually liked cheese even less as a child. There are things that I ate as a kid that I wouldn't eat now, most notably chitterlings. Oddly enough I really like blue cheese and a lot of ppl don't; if there is an opportunity to put blue cheese [dressing] on something, I most definitely will. It is lovely to talk about something nice. :-)

    • azapota1
      azapota1 6 months ago +1

      Aww...that makes me sad...until I remember the bit about more for me! /cackle
      Seriously, though, does it make you feel a bit weird not to like something most others like? 'Cause I loathe ketchup, but it has become quite clear that I am the only one on earth who feels that way. Totally fine now, but it was a bit isolating at times during childhood. I hated peanut butter too, and that one was *really* weird for a kid.
      Did you like cheese more as a child? Just curious because I like peanut butter now, and I also hate some things I used to shovel in when I was little. It is generally accepted that our taste buds physically change as we grow up, but I just find it so weird--man, I am really overusing that word today--to have whether i like something taken out of my hands, so to speak.
      (Also, it is super-nice to have a nice conversation with a nice person about something nice for a change. And yes, that time the overused word was intentional. Cheers!)

    Frank didn't get to finish his fondue.
    I would have let Richard walk out on his own,
    meander down the lane until he discovers I'm still back eating fondue.

    • azapota1
      azapota1 6 months ago

      Oh yeah, I remember they talked about that too! I don't think I should suggest anyone do *that* over fondue, though...although LOL @ the image of either Frank or Richard using a fondue fork like a swashbuckler's sword.

      After one of the London bombings, there was a lady who was eating in a restaurant near a blast who, when everyone ran, grabbed her creme brulee first. There was also a dude who took his pint. I learned of it watching The Last Leg. Just thought it'd be funny to see a guy racing down a street carrying fondue! =)
