Poor cute husband, when I broke the news to him on Friday (he really doesn't care) said surely he would be able to find us a reservation. Cutie. Not really getting the point. Ah well.

Fat duck instead, I guess.

POor cute husband, when I broke the news to him on Friday (he really doesn't are) said surely he would be able to find us a reservation.  Cutie.  Not really getting the point.  Ah well.

I was also gutted. I have eaten there three times now. I also asked for any table, any day from May on. Nothing, same email.

However, husband still is in the running.....we will see.

The yes emails have begun. I received an email a couple of hours ago offering me a table in April. This was my first try on an El Bulli reservation ... beginners luck, I suppose ... Very, very excited ...

How is "Camping Ciutat de Vacances Cala Montjoi Roses" which seems to be the only place very close to El Bulli. From the web site, it looks basic, but means that you can walk to El Bulli. Seems to only have booking for full board at E78 for two - although I don't think that we will bother with dinner there :wacko:

Not great. We stayed there last year. Even though I sent an email months before we arrived and received a "confirmation" of availability, when we arrived, we were told that they do not actually reserve rooms. (??) We were then quoted the "El Bulli rate" of 100 euros. The room was small, a bit run down, but clean. Bathroom was adequate, but we definitely felt like we were roughing it a bit and were glad to leave. I would never stay there again; however, I will say that it was VERY convenient since it's right next door to El Bulli.

To all those that have received a 'Yes!', do you mind sharing how you phrased your email request?

I guess that there is a sliding scale between 'I'll take any day you have' and 'I want table 3 on tuesday, july 8th, 8:43:30pm, but we will arrive at 8:36:4pm'

Thanks in advance

I don't think that would get you anywhere as July 8th is a Sunday.

My intent was to illustrate 'not enough detail' vs. 'too much detail'

      Has anybody tried making a dark roux in a pressure cooker? Can this be done without scortching do you think? I have made roux in the oven before and started wondering about this topic.

      I really want to improve the flavor of my chicken breast so I want to try to inject brine with fat and flavors.
       
      I would like to try brining with some hydrocolloids. The one example I found is this: https://torontofoodlab.com/2013/08/20/meat-tenderizing-with-a-carrageenan-brine/.
       
      However I cannot apply that to my chicken breast because I am cooking it sous vide, so the chicken will not reach the temperature needed for the carrageenan to gel.
       
      I am thinking of using Methyl cellulose, first disperse in hot water, then leave it for 24 hours in the fridge, then add salt, fat and flavors and inject it.
      I am afraid that until it reaches the 50C or 60C that the Methyl cellulose needs in order to gel, the liquid will escape.
      Any ideas?
      Thanks.

      Thanks for putting up this forum 🙂
      I would like to bake using a combination of sous vide and a conventional oven. Would it be possible to put the dough in a vacuum bag cook it sous vide at 37C for the dough to raise optimal and then put it in a conventional oven?
      Thanks

      Olla podrida sous vide
      Origin
      Not rotten pot, but mighty or rich pot! Originated in 16th century Spain, olla poderida became olla podrida and was falsely translated into French as pot-pourri.
      Ingredients
      For two servings
      * 100g Brisket well marbled, cooked SV 48h/55°C, large dice †
      * 100g Pork meat well marbled, cooked SV 24h/55°C, large dice †
      * 100g Lamb chops without bone, cooked SV 4h/55°C, large dice †
      * 100g Chicken breast, cooked SV 2h/58°C, large dice †
      * 100g Chorizo, sliced approximately 4mm †
      * 125g Chickpeas (garbanzos), soaked overnight in water †
      * 1 Onion chopped medium-fine †
      * ½ Savoy cabbage approx. 200g cut into pieces, thick leaf veins removed
      * ½ Celeriac approx. 200g quartered, sliced about 2mm
      * 2 Carrots sliced approximately 120g about 3mm
      * 1 Leek approximately 20cm / 100g sliced about 5mm
      * Extra virgin olive oil
      * Rice bran oil
      * Dried parsley qs, aromatic, black pepper
      † Beef, pork, lamb and chicken (or at least two kinds of meat) as well as chorizo, chickpeas and onions are mandatory ingredients, other vegetables vary according to desire and availability.
      Cooking
      Boil chickpeas in water for 30-60 min.
      Sauté onions in olive oil, add chorizo, continue sautéing, add chickpeas including its cooking water, add remaining vegetables, cover and cook to the desired softness, stir from time to time. If additional liquid is needed, you may add Sherry instead of water.
      Reduce heat. Season to taste. Add parsley.
      In a heavy skillet, sear the meat dice in just smoking hot rice bran oil (very high smoking point allows very quick sear, not overdoing the center of the meat).
      Sear one kind of meat at a time and transfer to the pan with the vegetables.
