Thinking of giving Hotcha another chance. Not sure what their service is like elsewhere on the map, but ours in Keynsham is terrible. Months later after I last ordered from them, they keep trying to entice me back with codes and coupons...
Whilst light, I would not class this as a good tiramisu.
You know when you buy a cheap potato salad and it's too sharp and rich, taking everything away from the key ingredient and destroying any body the potatoes used to have? Yeah, this was like that, somewhat missing the point of what makes Tiramisu so nice.
I made up for it with a rather excellent coffee and walnut cake I baked for the next day.
Fish cakes require fish, Prawn is not a fish as far as I can see.
As far as QI is concerned, there is no such thing as a fish, since, while looking and acting similar to one another, the various species of "fish" are more separated from one another in terms of their genetic make-up than they are separated from birds, mammals, lizards, etc.
It might be more accurate to say that calling them all "fish" does a disservice to the number of different species covered by the term. The same is true of bacteria- there's more genetic diversity in one thimble full of soil than in the entire animal kingdom. Still, I think abolishing the collective noun is just an excuse to make the buzzer go off on QI's part.
"I used to think it was a terrible thing that life was so unfair. Then I thought, 'what if life were fair, and all of the terrible things that happen to us came because we really deserved them?' Now I take great comfort in the general unfairness and hostility of the universe." — Marcus Cole, Babylon 5 — A Late Delivery from Avalon
Arachnids aren't insects, lots of things don't make sense, Prawns still aren't fish. Shark are fish, Whales are mammals, breathing water clearly has something to do with it, but prawns are not fish they are seafood. Its more important for menu reasons than scientific ones.
Still, I think abolishing the collective noun is just an excuse to make the buzzer go off on QI's part.
Wouldn't be the first somewhat spurious and rules-lawyering reason they have come across to make the buzzer go. And as it is usually Alan Davies walking into the beartrap... I am strangely ok with that...
I thought Prawns were Crustaceans rather than fish anyway - which I think is something like having an exo-skeleton (the bony kind, not the powered kind. Although the idea of a red and silver coloured "Iron Crab" does kind of amuse me)
Prawns are invertebrates. All fish are vertebrates. Prawns are closer to arachnids or insects in evolutionary terms than to fish. A shared environment doesn't have to indicate a close kinship. Look at people from Devon and then those people-like creatures that inhabit Cornwall!
