Sounds to me like a marketing ploy to get rid of "Whoops, which numpty left the bread in the oven too long and burned all the sodding bread?"

Nope there is a large market for well fired bread, specifically rolls in Scotland, never understood it myself but some people seem to relish high coal content bread.

Mine aren't that burnt! Yummy though. I had 3 more thick slabs smeared with butter and Marmite late last night.
Which may account for why I dreamt that our house caught fire but we were suddenly in another country so I had to find a local person to make the emergency call.

Those are not the blackest ones I've seen, I've had some that when you bit into them the crust shattered.

Wonder if it's a gourmet version of pica?

Dunno but I do know there is almost always tea involved.

My brother prefers his toast to catch fire before it's perfect for him to eat. As a family we like things well done, including bemahub. Crumpets, muffins, toast. My dad always asked for his steak 'well done' even though he ate in very posh restaurants. A few raised eyebrows from the waiters.

Well done steak is a steak ruined. Something I only discovered when I moved away from home. I had a steak sandwich at an ox roast and decided that it was about the best thing I had ever tasted, when I looked at what I had just bitten through and saw the redness I realized what I had been missing all those years.

I have gone from having steak well done to medium; I really can't go any more red than that. Chicken and pork must be cooked through thoroughly (I have heard of a trend to have pork a bit pink but I will not buy into that), and and lamb I can tolerate a bit of pink, but no more. The strong "bloody" meat taste is too much if it's not at least half to mostly cooked for me.

Speaking of pork, just put a couple of pounds of pork chops in the oven. Browned them first and made a cooking liquor with salsa, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, garlic and some southern spice mix. dumped that into a casserole dish with the chops and set it to 250F and letting it cook all day. Will incorporate the disintegrated pork into a chili later on today.

Traditionally, the understanding was that pork - unlike other meats - must be served well done. That was to do with a roundworm called Trichinella spiralis, which could infect pigs and be transmitted to humans.

That roundworm has been practically eliminated from pork for human consumption in the developed world - there hasn't been a case of trichinosis from pork for twenty years in Britain or North America. As a result, no longer do we insist that pork must be served well done.

We never have pork as a roast at home since neither of us particularly likes it. But when we have beef or lamb, they are not served well done.

Just eaten a punnet of strawberries and a handful of blueberries.

I feel a bit sick.

At least that's sick in a healthy sort of way.
