Re: Ask me a cooking question

Interesting question about the boards.

Food-safe paint - that's difficult, I'm not sure at all. As for bare boards, you need to be a bit careful what kinds of wood you use with food. I believe fruit wood is usually safe (apple, pear, cherry etc.). Avoid softwoods as they can have toxic resins; some hardwoods are also unsuitable. And be careful buying wood, as a lot of wood intended for building or woodworking is treated with preservatives which you don't want in your food.

I read somewhere that in the USA you can buy food-grade planks at barbecue suppliers - maybe there's something like that in your area, or online? Otherwise, do a bit of research into safe woods for use with food. Woods used for barbecue chippings might be a good start.

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi Jamie,
Just got a pasta maker Christmas. First stop, your fresh tagliatelle with sprouting broccoli and oozy cheese sauce. Being new to making my own pasta, with tagliatelle, fettuccine and similar pasta's, what thickness setting should I be finishing on?

Cheers mate
Love your work

Re: Ask me a cooking question

About to make some butter.  I've got 1200ml double cream.  I like salty butter, so how much salt do you think I should introduce, please?  Bit scared of overdoing it.

Re: Ask me a cooking question

I would work the salt in after you make the butter.   you  should knead  out the rest of the whey anyway , so once that is almost done add  less than you think you need   , give it a taste and then work up to what you like. .. keep track for next time.

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi Guys,

I was thinking of doing a roast pork and I wanted to do roast apple, fennel and pears? Does this work? I was going to put olive oil and I was thinking either balsamic vinegar or some red or white wine vinegar not really sure, any suggestion?

Regards,
Scott

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi Jamie

I have been watching you since i was about 5 and i have always loved your style of cooking. You have been my inspiration along with genaro you two together are the best. I have recently applied for a placement in northampton college for a professional chef diploma i may just be 15 but i am just so passionate about the preparation and serving of food.

So my question is this what was your inspiration to start cooking and do you have any tips?

Thanks if you get the chance to read this i hope to hear back from you soon.

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi to everyone here.

I'm going for my second round of entertaining this Christmas. The first round was very adult and all the recipes went down fantastically.  This time I have children coming. I remember last year I did these chocolate crunchy bites. It was from Jamie Oliver, I think one of the programs as I can't find the recipe anywhere. It was pretty simple; melt chocolate and swirl over brown sugar and orange then put in fridge to make long stick type sweets.  I could probably recreate them, but I wondered if anyone can tell me where to find the recipe again, because I'm likely to mess it up

Ta for now!

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi guys, I was watching 15 minute meals on tv a few weeks back and Jamie was cooking "Happy Cow Burgers" that had beans in them. I am a vegetarian and have searched everywhere for this recipe and can't seem to find it anywhere. Does anyone know where I can find the recipe or what episode of 15 minute meals it was featured on? Thanks.
