I’ve had a few people questioning the meaning behind my pseudonym and what it all means so I thought I’d have a go at explaining it and the tradition behind it.
I’ll begin with a little background when I was a young teenager we got two Siamese kittens and whilst trolling through the myriad of possible related names and having eliminated all of the usual contenders like Harley and Davidson, New and York, etc and etc 2 we settled on the names of a local delicacy which translated to porridge and meat but the die was cast and all family pets from thence forth were given food names like the next dog being relish and my own cats being Vino (wine), Wors (sausage) and Marula (an african fruit.)
When we got my beloved Staffie we again begun casting around for names and then inspiration struck me, we were at the time regulars at a sadly now defunct local South African Indian restaurant named 1860 and their signature dish was the famous and fabulous Bunny Chow, which is basically an early form of street food consisting of curry served in a hollowed out loaf or partial loaf of bread. The curry is traditionally mutton but commonly chicken, seafood or vegetarian curries are used too. Despite some personal research I have as yet been unable to track down a purveyor of bunny flavoured Bunnies.
So anyway after gaining the restaurant owners blessing that is where my hound got her name and ultimately where this blog got its name.
Hope that clears things up for you
Mr Bunny Chow
