We went out for lunch to the Waterside Bistro in Haddington today. There was this must-have item on the menu : Ayrshire gammon in Coca-Cola sauce. Yup, you read that right. Number one fizzy drink in the world, (but only just in Scotland) used as a marinade for a dish. Of course I went for it. And let me tell you it was delicious. It's like a very rich gravy, but slightly sweet. Like a sweet and sour sauce you might get in a chinese meal.
It's definitely a first for me. I've never heard of a chef using coke in a recipe before. But it works.
