Whichever way you slice it, Spam just exudes dodginess. More than a canapé hedgehog of cheese and cabanossi impaled on cocktail sticks and arranged in half an orange (glacé cherries for eyes optional). More than blancmange, or even than junket (insert quivering shudder here). Definitely more than fondue (some things never go out of style! Especially with cheese...).

Attempts to update, disguise or just make Spam
palatable seem a bit like putting lipstick
redcurrant jus on a (fake) pig. But this Spam musubi is surprisingly
eye-catching – I like how it works with the shape (although it might need a lot of wasabi!)...
