Re: Ask me a cooking question

Gidday Jamie
I dont want to ask a question but just wante to make more of a statement!  I tried to send an email but I was too restricted with how many words I could type  sad

I have been an avid fan since I saw you cooking on the Naked Chef many years ago.  You have inspired me over the years to cook meals that are tasty and enjoyable to create.  I praise your efforts in encouraging everyone out there to enjoy the pleasures of food and creating a meal that is fantastic to eat and easy to prepare.

I received your 15 min meal recipe book for xmas in 2012 and since coming back from holidays (we were away during Jan) I have cooked 2 meals and so far 2 out of 2 have tasted pretty darn fine!!  What an assult on the taste buds!  The recipes are soooo easy to follow, the food is soooo nutricious AND it hasnt broken the bank balance!  I can get everything that is listed in the ingredients list at my local supermarket or our farmers market.

This post is to just let you know that you really nailed it with this book Jamie and I congratulate you on a job well done.  Not only have you created an easy to follow recipe book (and beleive you me I have tried ALOT of recipe books over the years) but you blew this one out of the water!  My kids loved it, hubby loved it and I most certainly enjoyed making the meals.  You have put a new lease of life into our evening meals again!

I also received your DVD on 30 min meals and cant wait to check out a few of those recipes.  The DVDs are great because you show the veiwer little 'cheffy' tips that you dont otherwise see in a recipe book!

Keep up the campaign on offering the public a service with your expertise in the kitchen Jamie, it really DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE - and I hope I am not the only one telling you that!

We exercise regularly, enjoy family holidays, don't smoke and live an average lifestyle like the rest of the population but we do beleive that food is a LUXURY YOU CAN AFFORD and once again you nailed it with your recipe book!

Thanx again Jamie - its pure gold!  thumbsup

Re: Ask me a cooking question

In your 30 minute cook book there is a recipie for Bonofee Pie.   It requires Camp Coffee.    Have tried but cann't find it anywhere in Australia.   Is there something I can substitute?

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Welcome to the forums, Janetkay.

My Dad used to drink that. It was a liquid, treacly concoction that was heavy on chicory. Bushells used to make it. Haven't seen it for years but then I haven't looked for it hmm. Check in the tea/coffee aisle at the supermarket.

Sorry, I'm not much help, am I?

Good luck  crossed

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi JanetKay, can you get a coffee essence where you are? If not just  make a strong coffee syrup - use instant coffee or instant esspreso powder, you'll probably need a couple of teaspoons to get the strength.
Hope this helps

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hello, please can someone help me find a recipe, from around 4 years ago. It was in the news of the world Sunday magazine.

Being as this was one of my favourite deserts I have ever made please can someone help me find it again.
Thank you

The Bushells goop is a coffee essence but if you can't get it, do as Karenlesley suggests.

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hello Zara, If you google 'coconut macaroon brownies' you will find several recipies suggested - I don't know if any of them are the 'Jamie' one, but you should be able to find something that suits.

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hello Jamie, I write to you from Mexico. I have 2 questions about a recipe that I saw in your TV-Show (Fox-life), many time ago.
I can not remember the name of this recipe but you roasted a pork leg into the embers (red hot coal), like a specific reference, you made other you had a rectangular hole in the garden, I suppose you put the coal direct on the sand or on little stones. You prepared the pork leg and then you put a rotating roaster along the hole to roast the pork leg. In this occasion you connected a special device (I guess a mechanical device) to make rotate the roaster. You talked about the special effect by cooking, spinning and very slowly.   
1.- Could you share with me this special recipe?
2.- Could you help me to know how its called this mechanical device to make the roaster rotate? Where can I buy or order this special device?
Thanks a lot and please don´t stop ever to cooking…!!!!
Best regards
Ernesto Alvarado
