Potjevleesch. Potted heid. My auld man loved it. I would run out the house at the sight of it. There's no much I won't try but potted heid is up there.

I have to say, that’s quite flattering towards Selby and it’s inhabitants.

On the bottom right of the picture looks like someone lost a finger in the mix! Yuk, put me off my beans and sausage on toast. I mean Cassoulet on toast.

An email yesterday from a neighbour on her return to our apartment block in the Gard described a horrible smell of smoke on the ground floor and started ringing doorbells in case there was a fire in one of the apartments.

Apparently an elderly neighbour had put a calf’s head on to cook, then fell asleep. Luckily, her neighbour went to sit outdoors, saw smoke and managed to wake her, carried the burnt offering outdoors for her. She was unhurt although quite shocked; so lucky that D. wasn’t at work that day or it could have turned out very badly.

Once I knew what it was, I’ve always had a little shudder whenever I’ve seen tête de veau, sauce gribiche on a menu. I’ve never tried it and never will. Ugh!

There is no head meat in Potjevlesche, it's all in Allys heid :(

Maybe he was thinking of Museau de Porc.

Not a lot of meat on poultry heads.

My Polish dad used to make Brawn which involved boiling up pig’s trotters. I can’t abide meat in jelly, even the jelly in a pork pie...🤢

2 out of 3 are not indigenous to Brittany.
I never said that they were. However, cannot get them in Yorkshire. Homemade Cassoulet bubbling in the crock pot, it will overnight in the fridge and be eaten tomorrow after reheating.
