Anyway, Darren's starter was chili with nachos, and while preparing
the chili he shared his secret ingredient -- a dollop of marmite.
sometimes people on the west side of the atlantic can be such wimps
about Marmite(tm). It (and it's Australian analogue, Vegemite(tm))
are yeast extract. rather salty, but flavourful and stuffed with B-
some people like the taste, others don't. It may be that you need to
start ingesting it early in life to stand a good chance of liking it
(not dissimilar to standing a good chance of speaking a language
without a "foreign" accent by starting early).
some people have a squick reaction to it, but I suspect it's usually
because they try it in too large a portion size, spreading it on a
cracker as if peanut butter, which could have a similar reaction to
sucking on a teaspoon of salt, which of course will have a physical
thinly spread on toast soldiers, ideal accompaniment to a soft-boiled
manly fond of twiglets too panda
