  1. Hi Thanks - it's as much because I have a load of sodium citrate to hand and no ascorbic
  2. Does anyone know what sort of ratio sodium citrate should be added to say broccoli puree/juice to delay the 'browning' effect? Had a lengthy search and I get a lot of cheese hits (obviously!) Cheers Daniel
  3. I've done those before - I simply laid some plastic wrap over hemisphere molds, drizzled some truffle oil over the plastic wrap, and cracked the eggs into the molds. To get the air out i just worked it out with my hands and twisted the opening shut closing it with a small rubber band. If your eggs are floating (and your plastic is sealed well), try gently resting a fork or two over the egg to keep it submerged. Thanks - I had thought about those molds and hence I had a delivery yesterday of one - will try as you suggest and perhaps be more forceful!
  4. That's frankly an extraordinary colour for Pork - looks wonderful.
  5. I've been trying to make the Egg Blossom from MC book but am really struggling to get the air out when wrapping/trying the plastic wrap - then of course they won't sink in the SV - anyone with suggestions of how to get round this? I am doing a sci-fi dinner in a few weeks and was planning on separating the white and staining with blue food colour and then re-assembling - I want my guests to feel slightly 'uncomfortable' with what they are eating Planning to do some Racht (http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Racht) so might try making some spaghetti and squid ink.

    Bacon Foam

    The recipe didn't suggest cooking the eggs - just adding them to the infused cream - to some degree I don't want thickness as I'm looking to get that airy foam bit one that holds at the same time

    Bacon Foam

    Morning Have been attempting to make the above which is to go on top of a nettle soup...first couple of attempts have tasted fine but the foam hasn't lasted. The make-up WAS spanish bacon lardons rendered down, cooled and added to cream (300G) - after 30 mins, bacon removed, 2 egg yolks added, then blitzed and put in cream whipper and charged with 2 nitro bulbs. Looked fine but foam collapsed quickly and was left with a very nice tasting bacon cream. So, should I drop the cream and use a light chicken stock, use some soya lecithin instead/as well? Thoughts appreciated! Daniel

    Chicken Stock

    I use chicken wings only for when making stock, be it white or brown - amazing flavour, very fresh and plenty of bone to get that jelly feel to the chilled stock.
