  1. My gripe is Maple Syrup, hate the stuff. Couple of decades ago I was visiting Florida with the family and friends. One morning we all trooped into a IHOP for breakfast and ordered, obviously, pancakes. I seem to recall someone pouring the maple syrup over mine. One mouthful and that was it. All I could taste then for the whole day was the syrup. I have been avoiding the smell of it ever since.

    Turbot cooking method please

    Yes. I love this method and I'm the same about judging doneness. D
  3. My oh my. What crap news. I've watched, listened and read him for years. His "Les Halles" book is on my permanent access cookbook stand and has never been filed away. I just read my entry in it and it's September 2008. Ive just added Mort 08/06/18. What a bloody shame. YouTube is going to notice some heavy traffic now. I'll be one of them. Thinking of his family and friends now. Very sad. D

    Turbot cooking method please

    I have just bought a very fresh Turbot. It is my first one. I'm asking for cooking suggestions for what I understand is one of the best fish in the world. TIA D

    You crease me at times
  9. Isn't all that chicken butchery a thing of beauty. Oh to have access to such chickens. And the chicken skin, oh my. Thanks to @btbyrd for sharing, I've now subscribed. D

    How to Close a Restaurant

    @liuzhou Thanks for sharing. I remember watching him through the series in 2010. I honestly had him tagged as a winner. He has popped up as a judge in subsequent years. What a lesson. D

    I make some dishes because I'm off my head some of my best meals. Well done looks super. D
  14. I'll never visit Vietnam, but I don't need to. I just read about your visit. What a superb lesson in sharing and describing an experience. I'm in awe of your descriptive process of a visit to another country. Thank you for this. D
  15. I live alone and every day is a blinds down day. As I'm a Coeliac I tend to cook almost everything I eat. For a treat I"ll buy something frozen that I can eat and have that. I say treat as sometimes I enjoy a "night off" I will vary from toast and cheese to some complicated "Keller" job. I do eat quite richly, oyster and goose eggs are on today's menu. Oh, forgot the king scallops and asparagus. Sometimes a bag of crisps with cheese perhaps. Somethings I now refuse to make like mashed potato, chips, (unless I'm making big chunkies that take two days) A few other things that I regard as time I'll never get back if I make them. I'm good at wasting time and idling. At the moment 08.45, I'm lay in my hammock penning this with a double expresso and a fag, making chips would interfere with this regime, metaphorically of course. I live in a library of cookery books and use them. I do like nice things. D
