I am working my way through 15MM - wow! was there life before this book! I have now bought 30MM but not yet tried anything from it.
My question is more a request - please please would you consider making a dvd of the tv shows of each of these books. I for one could not put a price on how valuable this would be to me.
Some recipes seem intimidating, but if I watch you cook it before I begin, it feels like a doddle!
Thank you

Hi Hema, During the rush prior to Christmas, I noticed DVDs for 30MM at my local mega electronic store.

I live in Australia. Not sure where you live. Keep a watchful eye and/or try Amazon or similar stores online.

Re: Ask me a cooking question

I used my 27 year old electric waffle maker. Wouldn't have tried to flip it because my grill pan is too heavy.

Halved the recipe (Thank you, Joy xx) as a test run. Worked brilliantly.

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi Shunterbob!

Basic sponge cake: 2 or 3 eggs plus their weight in butter, sugar and self-raising flour. So 4 ingredients, equal weight of each. Plus a pinch of salt.

Mash the sugar into the butter and whip with a fork until it looks light and fluffy. Then mix in eggs and flour, a bit at a time is best, and the salt.

Bake 180C until it springs back when you touch it and a skewer/knife comes out clean. Don't open the oven for the first 20 minutes or it'll sink. Cooking time depends on size and shape.

That's your basic cake, so you can add cocoa powder, honey, fruit choc chips, whatever you have,or leave it plain. It works as a round cake, as a loaf or as cupcakes.

Hope that helps. I'm not a biscuit expert but biscuits are basically pretty simple, so I'm sure someone will be able to help you.

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi Jamie,

I really love all of your TV show and cook book especially when you cook in countryside  in England and your garden.
I cook at home every weekend, more times from your TV show.
Now I would like to ask you about making Christmas Pudding. In my country (in Hungary) I can buy Christmas Pudding only from shop which is not very tasty but I like that. I've decided I ask you about perfect recipe.

Do you have any good recipe?
Send me one of them,please.

Thanks and bye for now
Ildi

Re: Ask me a cooking question

But please I have just one more question! Is the restaurant does not accept registrations from different countries? I mean it accept registrations only from residents of the United Kingdom?
