Touched upon this on EG yesterday.

Cold Chilli and cold Pizza. It should be wrong. But it's sooo right.

Peanut butter and cheese too.

Go!

I don't know how anyone can cope with eating cold pizza. The very thought makes my stomach lurch.

I can't eat anything cold that's meant to be hot really. I mean, God provided us with microwaves, so why accept anything else?

get some nachos onto a baking dish, pour the salsa over it, then grate cheese over the salsa.

Grill for a few minutes and scoff it all up with your hands.

-_- Yummmmmm

And cold Pizza > All 'next day cold' foods

I go for cold burgers, sometimes I'll buy a cheeseburger from McDonalds knowing full well I won't be eating it for hours.

I remember hearing a theory that there is something in tomatoes that helps preserve the food and improve the flavour over time.

Think about it - all the food that is still nice and edible the morning after has tomatoes in it: pizza, chilli, bolognase, selected curries and chinese sauces. It's the tomatoes :-)

Yeah, I've been eating them since I was a kid so I figured they'd been around back in the 50s, too.

Sounds about right. Whenever I make bolognaise or chilli it always tastes best about 3 days after I make it.
Yum yum, in my tum!

Something to do with the effects of rationing or something?

I've got a thing for cold chow mein, as long as it's covered and kept in the fridge overnight. Think I'm alone with that one though...

Strangest I ever came across though was an ex girlfriend who put pickled onions, salt n vinegar crisps, cheese, salad cream and chocolate spread in the same sandwich. Never could bring myself to try that one.

I think that's the stoo effect that does that, which is something to do with the fat off the meat, I think. Works for spag bol and chilli the same way, I expect.

Pizza works because most of the ingredients in it are normally eaten cold: bread, cheese, pepperoni, cooked meats. Only certain toppings such as mushrooms, toasted peppers, sweetcorn are a bit odd cold but basically okay if you're hungry. It's only the tomato sauce that's basically wrong.

Cold pizza only works if it's left out all night in the box though. It just ain't the same if you cover it and put it in the fridge.

Not that the missus has any of that. Mutters something about ecoli and botulism every time.

What he said.

And only cold Dominoes or Pizza Hut will do - cold anything else is just an abhorrence.

Seriously. Order a pizza with just mushrooms. NO cheese and NO tomato sauce. It's very VERY nice.

I had a yummy goat's cheese, chicken, pesto and leek pizza at an Ask the other week. It was yummy but the oil from the cheese would have been grim if it were allowed to go cold.

Carlo, you're a flippin' FREAK! That aint' no pizza :)

I put apple in my kerulan fish curry along with the pineapple, superb combo.

Green plantains are also good in curry.

Chilli and dark chocolate go superbly well together. It works well both ways - I usually melt a few squares of good quality dark choc in my chilli, and add a few drops of chilli oil to melted chocolate when making desserts. Yum.

Nah, JimJam was right, I was just poking fun at Retroid. ^_^

But you could be strangely right, I'm fairly certain it would have been my Nan who first made me the sandwich.

Whatever is causing it, the effect is yumma-lumma-ding-dong!
Yay for tasty home cooked food!

Made a smashing sweet and spicy marinade for chicked drumsticks the other day:
3 shallots
1 de-seeded chilli
5 cloves garlic
small bit of ginger (1/2 inch cube)
3 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp dark brown sugar
1 teasp chinese 5 spice
1/4 cup veg oil
Whizz it all up in a blender till smooth. Then fry it in another 1/4 cup veg oil for about 12-15 mins.
Allow to cool then marinade away.
