Wine related humor:

by Bill Hooper » Sat Mar 16, 2013 1:30 pm

I just watched the movie Withnail and I again after a few years (which by the way is easily the funniest wine-related film of all time) and was reminded of the BBC Posh Nosh series (which I also hadn’t seen in a couple of years). If you haven’t seen these cooking-show/wine-pairing spoofs, you really, really need to. f*cking hilarious!

Thanks for the link. I wasn't aware of this series..

On another food link with Withnail & I, Richard Griffiths who played Uncle Monty went on the star in BBCtv's Pie in the Sky as a restaurant owner/chef who had wanted to retire from his job as police detective but is made to stay on investigating crimes for the Asst Chief Constable.
