  1. Hello, I'm making the following chicory root and potato desert https://www.greatbritishchefs.com/recipes/chicory-root-potato-recipe for the penultimate christmas lunch desert course. The recipe says to add some gellan gum to a chicory root ice cream. I'm not sure whether to add some high or low acyl gellan gum? I'm guesing gellan F (low acyl) as the recipe says to heat the mixture to 80C? Thanks, Daniel P.S i've decided to add some gold leaf on top for good measure!
  2. I have been making pancetta for the first time. I have experience with the curing process doing things like bacon and cold smoked salmon in the past but this is the first time I have ever hanged anything. After a week of curing it has had 11 days hanging so far (I was planning on taking it to 28 days hanging) Although I foolishly forgot to weigh it. It smells really good like some awesome salami and the outer rim of the pancetta looks lovely and rich and dark. It was a recipe by Kuhlman in one of their charcuterie books. But when I inspected it today it had the mould growing on it as in the pics below. I have since scrubbed the mould off with white wine vinegar and returned it to the cellar. Is it wise to continue?

  3. Hello, I am creating this prestarter for christmas day lunch. Decided to cook sweatbreads after seeing it on Masterchef! This is the recipe I am using https://www.greatbritishchefs.com/recipes/veal-sweetbreads-recipe-parsnip-air-and-curry-oil In the picture I have circled in red a layer under the Sweatbread there is no mention of it in the recipe and I have no idea what it may be apart from maybe something like caviar! Anybody have any ideas or is it part of the sweatbread? Thanks, Daniel
  4. Great thanks everyone for your response I will probably get some Japanese Knives :)
