  1. Maybe try the "submit a bottle" function on this website http://blog.cognac-expert.com/contact/

    Pourable pizza crust ... please help

    Or the recipe you are following is wrong, and you need to turn down the heat.

    I'd get an oven thermometer. Sounds like yours is running too hot.

    No links; but, if you want a crisp bottom, you will need to add the batter to a pre-heated pan/baking sheet. Even then, the inside will still go soggy after adding the "toppings"

    It's more akin to a Yorkshire Pudding http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yorkshire_pudding Turn down the heat after adding the toppings; that should stop it burning before they are heated through.

    Wine Roulette: Who wants to play?

    For those of us in the UK, the 2013 Alamos Malbec is available at Majestic (I have no connection with the company). Will try to pick up a bottle tomorrow.

    If you have a sweet tooth, then try this recipe for Sticky Toffee Pudding
  10. Or perhaps it's actually just a ruse to increase coverage of the product both online and offline that will then enable Kerry Foods to be seen to acquiesce to popular public demand and hence relaunch the product on the shelves to a slightly self-deprecating fanfare (and a minimal publicity spend). Of course, this never, ever happens (for example; it never happened to Heinz Salad Cream, nor BBC 6 Music)

    Add duck fat when you cook the choucroute; you may need to add a little water too (depending on how much residual you have after the washing stage) I like to serve it with potatoes steamed, then tossed in butter and parsley (though it's best with potatoes roasted in duck fat). A good Riesling to wash it all down it obligatory.

    Strange wonderful fish.

    It would probably be helpful to know where in the world you are
  13. What a fascinating name for a fruit! Thank you so much for blogging Elizabeth; this is a completely new culinary world for me
  14. Why doesn't he talk to some of the well respected restaurant operators in the region eg, Anthony Flynn, Tom van Zeller, Nigel Howarth, Paul Heathcote about wanting to further his front of house career. They are all approachable people and will hopefully be able to offer him some advice

    Help making a fake pie

    The detailed photos of the "Something Borrowed" cake suggest that it is covered in actual pie crust, not fondant. I would be amazed if fondant could be made to look that blistered and brittle, like real pastry. My bad; I was going by what was written below the photograph. Particularly the part that states: " Here, piecrust is a decorative and delicious fondant on the cake"
