Please can you tell me the reason for cooking leeks for 30 minutes in the Jamie's Christmas Lucious Leftover turkey and leek pie, when leeks can be cooked in a few just a few minutes?
Thank you..

Hi Christine,
I think Jamie cooks them this long so they are very tender and sweet but saying this I just read in Heston's book that leeks shouldn't be cooked any longer than 20 minutes as they lose their flavour. So maybe the longer they are cooked the gentler in flavour they become. Hope this helps in some way... smile  smile

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi Jamie.
I am an explorer scout leader. Every year our scouts participates in the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme. Those that don't know this is a multiday hike where all equipment including food and stoves need to be carried. I am looking for some ideas for things to cook on the expeditions, usually it is either expensive and pretty poor tasting specialist boil in the bag food or super noodles/ pasta and sauce and I want to find some cheap nutritious and tasty replacements

However the following considerations need to be taken into consideration.
1. The food need to stay fresh and undamaged in a rucksack for two/three days.
2. Weight is a consideration. so heavy cans are generally a no tins (a small tin of tuna etc may be ok) also ideas like half a tube of tomato puree instead of a tin of chopped tomatoes are also welcome.
3. The food has to be cooked on 1 small camping stove.
4. It has to be simple as teenagers are cooking it after a long days hiking.

Any ideas would be grateful

Cheers Dave

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Happy New Year Jamie! I am from France and new member of your blog! Sorry for my bad english.... I am such a big fan of your "cooking style".... Anyway, I cooked today a "Bresse Chicken" for my family (i have 4 kids) with your goose receipe (the one with 5 spices, clementine...... And your gravy, as well as your roast potatoes receipe!). My chicken was perfectly cooked but didńt appreciate much the 5 spices with this wondeful bird! (Here in France, Bresse Chicken is considering like the best of all and is quite a luxurious product).
I was wondering if you have already cooked "Bresse Chicken" and how? I did not found   vidéo on Youtube. Because here, one of the best way to Cook it is Georges Blanc ´s way, very famous receipe with "vin jaune and morilles" (delicious of course....)
Perhaps you could give me "tips" for an original receipe? I trust so very much your style!
Thank you very much if you read me as my english isn't good at all.....
Amélie (oh I just saw you were born on 27th May like me except For me it was in 1971!)

Welcome to the forum, mogesembete wave

Jamie doesn't visit here very often. He's very busy. What would you like to know? Perhaps one of us can help you smile.
