Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi mate,

What are your favourite, reasonably quick to make summer recipes?

And a quick question about curries - do you know if you are meant to fry the spices before adding any other ingredients? I've heard it's essential to do it however I don't want to make my curry too bitter by overcooking the spices. I occasionally upload pictures of what I've cooked to my Twitter (usually your recipes), feel free to follow me if you wish! www.twitter.com/ChrisRaperSmith

Hope you're well,

Chris

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi! I'm new here. I'm a 21 year old with male with cooking as a hobby.  I'd want to learn how to make desserts and I'm thinking of making pie but I dont know how to bake. What kind of dessert are made by beginners. I'm thinking of pudding. Anyone has an easy recipe for pudding? And any advices for a successful first time at making pudding?

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi Jamie,

A "back to basics" question(s) from me...

I'm currently perfecting the art of the perfect poached egg (both in cookedness and looks). What's your take on the following:

Pan - deep or shallow
Water - salted or unsalted, vinegar or plain
Whirlpool - yes or no
Insertion (ooh err!) - straight to pan, or into cup/saucer first
Timing (large egg) - ?

And any other tips? (eg, I'm currentlly putting the whole unbroken egg in for 20 secs, to start setting the albumen before breaking it)

Cheers!
