The rubbing in part can be nice and relaxing.  I used it to make a quiche lorraine; bacon, mushroom, mature cheddar, semi-skimmed milk, free range eggs, and cherry tomatoes, and I even had a loose bottomed flan tin (even if it was a bit too big for the recipe).  It was absolutely fantastic.  I served it with savoy cabbage, crinkle cut chips, and ketchup.  John and Sam liked it too.
