    not at all!! speaking of which, what other foods 'mature' over time? leftovers always seem to take on their own distinctive flavour and sometimes it can be better than when first cooked.
  5. growing coriander/cilantro

  6. growing coriander/cilantro

    i've had a few plants now that i've bought from supermarkets and they've always died within a week or so. it only happens with coriander and flat leaf parsley. they're always indoors and get may enough sun light. anyone got any ideas? should i just start from seed? cheers

    might be why i like it. just adds a bit of heat without affecting the flavour. i'm a bitof a newb so i'm sure i'll get onto something else with a bit of flavour. what would you suggest chilli wise? powder form so i can quickly chuck it on sarnies, etc
  8. Food fetish fun

    anyone one go through phases of being totally addicted to a certain ingredient and having to put it in everything? or having the same dish over n over? i can't stop making scrambled eggs at the moment. and i put cayenne in EVERYTHING!! such an amazing flavour. i'd put it on my cornflakes if i wasn't too busy eating scrambled eggs!!
