Mammoth pickle

Is that like bacon jam?

Also, one does not have chutney on blue cheese, Oliver, you dozy sod.

Blue cheese with poached pear is legit. Membrillo with (some) blue cheeses is a splendid thing. But blue cheese and chutney? Nope. Blue cheese and vinegar are not happy bedfellows, which is why you should approach recipes for bc dressing which feature vinegar with caution. Sherry vinegar seems to work, if you must.

Oops, I read that as “poached bear” … probably because that makes a certain sense in the context of “mammoth pickle”, eh?

First catch your bear.

Note that catching the bear and being caught by the bear can look very similar.
