Hi Jamie,

I have just bought your 15 minute meal book.  I have noticed that some of the recipes use single cream instead of double cream.  I have used this before in cooking and it splits so I'm worried that it will do so again.

Taking your gratin recipe as an example won't the cream split when it's in the oven?  How do I stop the cream from splitting in other recipes?

Thanks for the help.

Whenever using single cream to add to a hot mixture, you must slowly heat the cream beforehand in a seperate pan and add it only when it reaches the same temperature as the already hot mixture....

Hi gmont and welcome to the forums wave

I'm not Jamie but why not try segmented orange? Avocado wouldn't go astray, either.

Hope this is of some use.

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hello! Im new to these forums but Ive watched Jamies show for along time. I have a question and its kind of a problem. Alot of your recipes require fresh Coriander, These meals look fabulous but my problem is, my wife is allergic to fresh Coriander. Is there a substitute for it that wont compromise the flavor to much?.

Thanks

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi Jamie,
I tried making the Banana Pancake but I could not make the banana looks golden and crisp like you have done it. The banana came out from the pan looking limpy and mushy. Is there a tip /trick to do this correctly?

By the way, I am truly culinary challenged. Hence, I am currently attempting to cook 100 of your recipes in 6 months to confirm if anyone can really cook, if we try hard smile

There are a few things you can do. In some recipes it works just to leave it out. In others it can be replaced with parsley, basil or mint ie work out which soft fresh herb suits best, you might just have to try and see! cool

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi Jamie,

First: LOVE your work thumbsup , your recipes and your never ending motivation to make people love and eat better food.
Now my cooking problem: I can't get merinques right, I always overcook them. I want them to be sticky in the center, but how do I know when to get them out of the oven???
Hope you can help!
Keep up your great work!!!  clap

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Ok thanks smile
So I will try when the dish calls for it as a garnish to use the others, but when it asks for it as a ingredient I found out that shes not allergic to powder coriander so i will try them that way.   clap

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi,
Not really a cooking question. But was wondering if you still get the oppertunity to cook at Fifteen. My daughter(8yrs) really wants to visit and eat at Fifteen because she has seen you on tv and wants to see you cook.smile

Thanks for taking the time.smile
