Re: Ask me a cooking question

I would like to do the mothership beef but can only get silverside.  Will that be ok?

So I'm making Jamie's lamb rogan josh for the first time and what I want to know is if I make it now and freeze it, will it still taste as good when I come to use it next week? I have guests coming over but don't want to spend all day cooking on the day - I'd rather cook it all now and defrost it.

I am also making a chicken and potato curry and would like to make and freeze that too.

Any comments are greatly appreciated smile

welcome to the forum weston800 smile

I am not sure if it can be frzen but if you have a slow cooker I am sure you can set it to cook in that earlier in the day or even cook it the day before and put it into the fridge over night .

I have never found freezing potato very sucessfull so I would not freeze the chicken and potato curry.

The rogan josh should freeze just fine.  The chicken and potato curry, if it is in a yogurt or cream-based sauce may separate or split (form clumps).

What issues have you had with freezing potatoes mummza?  Do they oxidize or get too mushy?  Just curious, because I have heard people say they had issues.  I've had success freezing baked and mashed potatoes . . . even twice-baked with a sour-cream sauce without it splitting.

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Ok, well that makes sense to me.  I have to say, for guests, I would always make fresh  potatoes because they are better.  I really dry out the potatoes on the stove before and during the process of adding butter and hot milk and this is one time when I don't skimp and I don't mash really, I grate them with a fork so they don't get gluey.  This was Julia Child's advice and it works really well for me.  I would however, only freeze them in one-portion servings and do so immediately after cooking as they will change when cooled down slowly, they will get yucky.

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi Jamie.   In your recipe for steamed chocolate pudding, should the chocolate I buy be semisweet?  If not, what do you suggest?
Thanks.

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi Jamie!,
Firstly I am a big fan of you. I am from Istanbul. My name is Elif Yasa. And I am 12 years old. I went to your restaurant in London and I LOVED IT! I left a comment also. This year in my school Eyuboglu College, I joined International Cooking Club. We are cooking some desserts, meals from different countries like Italy, Greece, Spain, England etc. I heard that you will open a restaurant in Istanbul. And when I heard It I was too excited. My plan is to go your place!!!! It will be my favorite restaurant. When you will come to Istanbul can visit us in our school?. And attend our International Cooking class. We will be very pleased if you come to our school.
P.S: Our club  teacher is also English.
Loves to Big Cook,

from Little Cook Elif smile

Re: Ask me a cooking question

I bought Brisket today to make the mothership roast but mine looks much fattier than Jamie's did. Is mine just a poorer quality of meat or is brisket fairly fatty?

Thanks

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hello Jamie! I am a big fan from Brazil. I wanna know if you have ever tried to cook a tipical brazilian snack called "Coxinha de Galinha". If so, tell me, but i bet that you must come to my country to taste the very different ones and their quality!
Even Nigella, when she came to Brazil some months ago, said in a famous tv show that it's really amazing and she would try to reproduce the recipe in London.
