Please can you tell me, would any liquidiser cope with frozen fruit or will the blades or motor get ruined? Thanks

I bought a kichenAid blender/ liquidiser years ago because it was about the only one on the market at that time that crushed ice , but I think there are now others also .
The kitchenaid blender that I have was expensive but its lasted really well and must be over 15 years old now .
The only problem is that they take up quite a lot if room in uni-rooms .

I hated it when my son and daughters left home and went to uni , I also worried about them cooking and eating properly . I need not have spent those sleepless nights as they all coped ! (Even my 'reluctant cook' now cooks a bit !) as my family had not eaten ready meals they were used to fresh home cooked food and after trying ready meals a few times soon worked out how to cook !
I did buy a good almost step by step fairly basic cook book for my son then his sisters also for a copy .

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hello Jamie, I just moved to live in the university in England and as you probably know the food habit change dramatically. My question is how can I maintain my food habits but still keep my self to a strict budget and are there any special recipes that are good for a student and at the same time fast and easy, I have some idea for what i will cook for the coming 3 days but after that i am completely blank.

Thank you for answering smile

Hi mazza54walking, glad you're enjoying the show! I'm afraid that recipe is only available in the Save with Jamie book, though.

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi Jamie, Please Help!!
I have two boys and they are Autistic.  I love them to pieces every second of the day, but when it comes to meal times, they really do test me.
I am not a great cook and we do not have a lot of money, but I have tried my best to cater for their needs, but I am pretty much down to two meals which they alternate on every other day which is Pizza and Sausage & Toast. 

I feel completely inadequate as a mother because I feel that I am failing miserably with the fight to get them to eat a decent meal and it is extremely worrying thinking they might not be getting the essential nutrients that they need.  I don't know if you are able to help with menu ideas, but I know that there are a lot of other mothers who are in the same position as me, with Autistic children who are pulling their hair out same as me.  So if you could offer any guidance it would be very much appreciated. help

Hi Jamie,

I have used your bread making recipe it was my very first attempt at making my own bread. I had 2 problems the 1st it was a bit too doughy and 2nd it looked as though it had a greyish circle in the middle of the bread.

Regards

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi Jamie!

I'm a passionate amateur cook and Jamie fan that first started watching and being inspired by your shows when I lived in the UK around the turn of the millennium. Me and my girlfriend just watched an episode of "Jamie's 15-minute meals" (from 2012) in which you prepared a Koftas Kari, and demonstrated a method for peeling fresh ginger by using a knife and cutting away large portions of the root. This surprised me a little since by doing so you discarded almost half of the root, something that seemed like quite an "un-jameish" thing to do?

I figured I'd share a method for peeling ginger that I learned from my Iranian friends sweet old granny; Instead of a knife she simply used a spoon and scraped off the peel. It's quite as fast but leaves the ginger almost intact with a minimum of waste. An added benefit to this method is that the part just below the peel carries the most flavour, so you make sure to get even more taste from even less ginger.

So, next time you peel ginger, use a spoon smile.

Keep up the good work, and lots of love!

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi Jamie, Im new to this but a massive fan of yours, your Brighton restaurants is my families favourite place to eat ! I love the new show and watching last nights episode the beef rending looks amazing ! I however don't have any left over Brisket but I love a beef curry can you give me suggestion what to replace with.

I absolutely love your style of cooking, you make it look effortlessly, 1 of my favourite meals is your pork belly taco's !

Thanks Jamie

Thank you for getting in contact with us. It is great to hear that your daughter is planning on making her own smoothies. I think that most liquidisers will cope with frozen fruit but i would suggest double checking the manufacturer's instruction booklets and websites to double check.
