Food in AP

Post by Trevor » Wed Sep 14, 2022 5:53 pm

Not sure what Oz would have made of this thread, but can imagine it wouldn't have been complimentary. Barry might have thought it was interesting. The others would probably think i was just a nut.

For reasons I can't explain, I've found the food in AP of interest. Perhaps it's because I'm a greedy bastard, or perhaps it's nostalgia for food from the 80s. Anyway, for whatever reason, I've decided to create a record of the food/meals in AP 1 & 2.

There were two incidents that sparked my interest in this, the first was the cheese and ham rolls from S1E1 If I were a carpenter. The Geordies have these at an unknown European service station on their way to Dusseldorf.

The other was the motorway service station in series 2 episode 3. Good old fashion fry ups.

What I liked is that they're actually eating the food, it's not just there for show. They look like they're enjoying it too, or at least were hungry. And they're eating it like real people would, well people like me and my mates would. I've got a mate who piles beans onto toast in hand like Oz.

I've tried to work out what they all had, but dealing with poor quality VHS era base material, so please feel free to offer alternative suggestions:

Oz - scrambled eggs on toast, beans on toast and sausage
Den - scrambled eggs on toast, black pudding, sausage
Nev - beans on toast and 2 sausages
Wayne - two fried eggs on toast
Bomber - full English, beans, fried egg, black pudding, bacon, toast and possibly fried bread.
Moxey - glass of milk, the doughnut

Great thread! Oz and Dennis also have (presumably cheese and something) rolls on the ferry. They lived off them for that trip!

Two scenes immediately come to mind for me: Mox getting his banger warmed by Wayne's hairdryer (rubbish gag really but always makes me smile) and Oz eating beans out of the tin in his undies in the hut.

Moxey's face in the above pic where he's looking at Wayne's eggs is classic. He's really not liking that fried food is he? :lol:

Ah the cheese rolls were a staple of the first series, those or really thin looking sarnies. Mind you, living off beer, bread and fags isn't bad living.

Moxey had a thing for sausages in the first series

I like to keep it simple me. Tea and bread.
Oh, and wash it down with a mug of sherry

Long before people got paid to make videos of them cutting soap, therapeutic visual meditative video consisted of Moxey spreading St Ivel on his toast. You can tell he was the plasterer, great coverage and full concentration. Never been sure what he puts on top of the marge though? First thought peanut butter from the Sunpat looking jar. But when he spreads it over the toast, it's clearish, so perhaps marmalade?

Nev by comparison just slapped it on like a brickie with mortar.

That toast looks like it had been sitting around for a few takes. Gone to that chewy stage....

One of my favourites now, from my favourite episode. Barry's morning fry up after the first night in the Manor.

He needs some lessons in cracking eggs though. Egg, beans and i think sausage and bacon. Sounds alright to me.

Later on in this episode the lads have their lunch break (official Den) and have lunch by their bonfire. I love a bonfire. I also love a sandwich. Ham and, as Barry's very keen to point out it's cheese n chutney.

Poor old Den gets the scrapings from the Mow's bar top offerings. Not something you tend to see now, expect health and safety has driven it out.

It's definitely marmalade on toast at Barry's. Like you I always find that scene hyponotic and find myself just watching Mox preparing his toast ("I reckon there's a perpetual backlog up there"). And then I always want to eat marmalade on toast myself.

Some great series two shots there, nice one! Also Oz eating his breakfast toast like it's a rack of ribs in the Barley Mow. And Ally living the high life at the Cross Keys (I need a little more horseradish Fiona...)
