Re: Ask me a cooking question

How do you make cauliflower into a steak? Do you chop it and push it back together as a sort of burger type thing? If so, what do you bind it with and do you use a coating?

you cut it so it looks something like this.

you roast it hot and then brush on the glaze  a few minutes before the end of cooking. .  As long as you like cauliflower it is a pretty easy , but somewhat  unusual side.

A gadget question please.  Anyone possess a Tefal Actifry frier?  If so, your comments please and its capabilities.
Ta, in anticipation.

cmcconnell1031.  Never seen cranberry 'jam', as such.  Cranberry Sauce is the one to look for.  You should find it in your supermarket with other sauces.  Happy hunting.  Oh and welcome to the forum.

Re: Ask me a cooking question

I've seen a recipe using Bitter Gourd (Bitter Melon or Karela) and one of the ingredients is Asafoetida (Hing). Can anyone that has had experience with it, tell me about it and a possible substitute?
Thanks. crossed

Re: Ask me a cooking question

I don't think there's any substitute for asafoetida. It's one of the spices used in curry mixes and it has a very distinct flavour. If you can't get it, you'll probably just have to leave it out. But it would be worth trying to find it - if you can't find it in supermarkets, try an Asian shop or supermarket if you have one near you.

Re: Ask me a cooking question

I do most of my spice shopping in Asian shops. My guys are legends, and really helpful. I don't remember seeing that spice though. Will check them out though as I'm seeing them later as I need to make stock. They don't mind hacking a chicken into small bits for me.
Cheers mate.

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi Jamie, I have an Australian question. When you say to rest the Christmas turkey for 2 hours, that sounds fine in England where it's cold but it is really ok to leave a turkey on the bench for 2 hours in Australia in summer??
Thanks for your shows and books,
have a Merry Christmas,
Fiona xx

Re: Ask me a cooking question

I cook my Turkey following Jamie's recipe cooking it on a trivet of vegetables and the giblets, then mashing the veg etc after the turkey has cooked to make the gravy, but this year I can't find where I put the recipe and can't find it on Channel 4OD.  It seems all the recipes for gravy are his 'get ahead' one with using chicken wings.  I also liked this episode as he showed us how to carve the turkey by removing the breast whole, which I have seen him do since, but I still want to watch the episode regarding the gravy!! I think it would be about 2006? Any ideas on how to get this please?
