Re: Ask me a cooking question

Chris, a warm welcome to you and hope you're well back on the road to a full recovery.
How about kipper pate, served with melba toast and watercress?  All can be prepared in advance.

Good luck.

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi Jamie

Can you help me with my Yorkshire puddings? I can never get them to rise and go crispy. They are always flat and soggy! What am I doing wrong???  Perhaps it's cos I'm upside down in Aus (lol).
Great site by the way. X help

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi Nurse16 wave and welcome to the forums smile.

I'm "down under", too. Don't have a problem smile. Is your fat smoking hot before you pour in your batter? Do you let your batter rest (to develop the gluten strands) for a bare minimum of 30 mins before cooking? Do you open the oven door to peak/ remove other food while the Yorkshires are in? They will deflate somewhat when you take them out of the oven which is why everything else should be raring to go (just need to serve the Yorkies and then -> table.

Hope this helps smile.

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi Maree

That's probably a no on both counts. Will have a go and make sure I follow your advice. Fingers crossed I can master it, cause I do love yorkshires and you rarely get them here in Adelaide. Thanks so much for your reply. thumbsup

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi Maree

Well I followed your advice and used Jamie's Yorkshire's recipe and they came out Perfect!!!!!!  still can't believe that I've cracked it  clap
I made the batter and put it in the fridge for an hour beforehand and heated the tin with oil at 225c for about 15 mins before adding the batter and cooking. Luckily I have a clear glass door on the oven, so I could watch them rising. Thanks again so much for your advice.  thumbsup
