    Pig Spleen

    Had the Rolled pig's spleen at St John on the Bar Menu and very nice it was too.
  2. Welcome, to egullet from a fellow Londoner.
  3. I did a trial with some stewing steak, one I did nothing with,the other I used the jaccard on then cooked both sous viide at 60C for 4 hours with a small of gorgonzola in each bag, the jaccarded steak was preferable and softer than the non jaccarded steak. Interestingly the small amount, and I mean a smear, of blue cheese really brought out the beef flavor and was eaten even by a guest who will not eat any form of cheese.
  4. Could they have used one of these on the meat?
  5. You can believe a lot of wacky things that are only incidentally about cooking and still be a great cook. Eric Ripert for example, believes that menstruating women can't make mayonnaise without it breaking. Interesting, a friend of mine who is a female head chef, told me she can't make mayonnaise at that time of the month. I'd never heard of Eric Ripert comment before.
  6. I've always followed what my grandmother said, eat a bit of everything and not to much of anything.

  15. Yes - The meat in cooked frozen lobsters I've found tends to be a bit mushy or rubbery but the shells are great for lobster bisque. And in that context the meat is not so bad for garnish if sliced.
