    I'd also send you along Barclay Street to JG Ross. Their Premnay butteries are spellbinding.
    I've heard nowt about a black pudding ( and if we're talking black pudding, I'll direct you a fair distance North-West to Stornoway) hybrid version, though I'm prepared to be convinced.

    I'm a twenty-seven year ex-pat of the Riviera so I'm nae fully au fait with contemporary happenings.

    Was a while ago. I'm banned from eating black pudding now. I think they still do them though. I'll pop in by the morn and see.

    To be fair "Premnay butteries" are the official name. Think it's a toon near Insch. Taste and texture wise they're bloody close to an Aitken's rowie 👍

    Rowies were invented in Aberdeen. It was the fishermens choice of food as the didnt go off due to the amount of fat on them. Perfect for the long trips at sea as normal bread goes stale too quick

    So if Premnay are claiming the buttery (its a f@cking rowie for the record) they are full of pish

    A certain poster loves them too

    You can take your fu ck ing Aberdeenshire and insert it gently into your rectum.
    And they can do the same with “Moray” - that’s Elgin, and its Detroitian hybridism of minted posh ****s and dregs of society zoomer minkers. Tomintoul’s nae in Moray, nor is Keith. And “Banff, Aberdeenshire” frilliuvafuuck? Portsoy Banffshire is the home of Donald’s bakery that hand-crafts Proper Mannies’ oatcakes (ie breid) and their butteries are among the best.

    Since Aitken’s fell foul of noncery, a near-acceptable toon alternative is Thain’s rolls, which have the desired hertburn-inducing quantities of high octane grease and the crispy consistency of gravel crushed under a Banffshire road-mender’s Red Wing 3208 boot.

    No no you misunderstood. 'Premnay butteries' is the name of a buttery made for JG Ross's bakery. They are bloody delicious.

    For me they are rowies. It's not without exceptions but largely us toonsers call them rowies and country bumpkins call them butteries.

    One of the most notable exceptions is the "Aberdeen buttery company" based up in Northfield. Buggered if I know why they chose to flout the 'rules' like that. Does my head in when their van goes past. What sort of Aberdonian uses the word buttery 😠

    Sounds likes the potteries version?

    I only eat the proper traditional flat hard wedge shaped things. Scrumptious with cheese spread.

    Packaged (in plastic, so I'll have a green word) just as they come from the oven. formed as triangles, one would suppose but there's nary an equilateral, Isosceles nor right-angled among them. Thickness varies from hun-on-Mastermind to depth-of-Traynor's-morality. Crumblier than a a LSC title challenge and tastier than a Roberto Bisconti tackle.

    Excellent buttered with cherry tomatas and grapes to counteract breid's inherent dryness, perhaps crumbled into yer ma's tattie soup*, or with Proper Mannies' stovies.

    * rules strictly applied

    Premnay is that village that has 2 names but I can't remember the other one. I bought a Ford Orion 1.6i ghia from someone there. Electric windows, I was well chuffed.

    Pacmin that link states that toppings should be spread on the flat side of the rowie. The worlds in worse trouble than I thought if we've had people spreading toppings on the rough side.

    Auchleven.

    I think it's that odd thing where the village uses one name and the surrounding parish uses the other.

    In Banffshire, there's confusion between Boharm/Mulben and Botriphne/Drummuir, although central and upper Banffshire confusion about nearly a'thing, tends to be based on residents' appetites for the output of the industry they work in.

    I always thought Auchleven was in Fife. My old geography teacher needs to be dug up and given a good kicking.

    I used to go to that butchers a lot, the pork schnitzel is magic. Then I discovered the deli and the rest is history, their rump steak in a bun with onions and mustard is the thing I miss most from living up that way.

    You’re all a load of heathens.

    Is that how you spell heathen, it doesn’t look right?

    Anyway, back on subject

    I’m just out of the Cafe Central in Vienna where I had coffee and a funcy piece.

    Fine as f’uck

    I steamed the bakers in stoney today. The USP of the "Premnay buttery" is they still use animal fat.

    Oh **** aye.
