  1. I did a direct comparison today of the Pierre Herme recipe and the Francois Payard recipe. I used the Herme crust for both. Both were good and it was difficult to pick a winner. Most people (5 out of 7) preferred the Herme recipe. Payard: a bit less work, more intense lemony flavour (though the Herme tart was adequately lemony), much less butter Herme: a bit more work, great texture, looked nicer (though I did top it with a torched Italian meringue), a lot more butter I would make the Payard tart if I needed a quick lemon fix for myself but I would probably make the Herme tart if I were making the tart for friends or family.

    Thanks. I found the chilli powder there, but no maval. Have you tried House of Spice at Kensington Market ? The link has a listing of the stores there. ←

    There are a few Kashmiri recipes that I want to try and I need some Kashmiri red chillies and maval (cockscomb). Has anyone come across these in Toronto? I have found US mail order sources for the Kashmiri chillies, but I would prefer to buy it here, if possible. Thanks

    Your 2006 "cooking" wish list

    I will set out on a quest to track down the ultimate biryani recipe this year. I would also like to master some of the breads in the Bread Baker's Apprentice.

    Mangoes & Curry Leaves

    Actually, the next book which they are working on will focus on China. In a recent interview they said that they are working on a book which will cover the food of the outposts of the Chinese empire (or something to that effect).
