    Do you refer to this certain vegetable as an aubergine or eggplant?

    Eggplant is the American way of saying it, Aubergine is the french way.

    oi. I beg to differ.

    roasted aubergine is divine if you cook it right.

    Respect the aubergine!

    The only correct way to cook an Aubergine, is with napalm. That way the only thing left is ash.

    They are horrible disgusting plants, I picked them in Australia.

    The plants are at knee height requiring you to bend over all day, are covered in thorns, have a really sticky sap which is impossible to get off and absolutely stink.

    I live in the US, so it's an eggplant. My mother-in-law makes the most amazing eggplant lasagna, before I tried it I hated them.

    Zucchini or courgette? :beard: I prefer zucchini, it sounds much more exciting.

    Yes. I have tried a wide range of food and it is bland, like tofu but not as versatile.
