Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi there,
a lot of your recipes call for meat to be cooked on high heat whilst coated in paprika.
I am originally from Hungary and we use a lot of paprika in our cooking. My mum has always told me not to leave paprika on the heat for any considerable time as it burns easily and ends up tasting bitter. In fact she always takes the pan off while adding paprika to a dish, lets it dissolve in the hot fat - which is the only substance paprika dissolves in - then lets up with liquid and only then puts it back on the heat. I, myself once coated fish in paprika then fried it in a little oil, by the time it was cooked indeed it tasted bitter and burnt. Totally ruined the fish. This has so far made me avoid all of your dishes that has meat seasoned and cooked in this fashion.
Any tips or thoughts on the subject would be welcome.
Thanks  x

Re: Ask me a cooking question

I should make a general call for the whole forum to make something blue-black-white.

Re: Ask me a cooking question

sorry REDFOX...the only blue food I can think of are Blueberries...

Poisons were traditionally put in blue glass here in the UK, So that you could identify poisonous substances easily...

Re: Ask me a cooking question

I would think that the simplest option is to make a cake of some sort and decorate with the colours of your choice.  Other than that, can only think of the following:

Caviar is black!
Squid ink is black!
Liquorice is black!

White fish is, err white!
White chocolate is white!

If in doubt, use food colouring, or emigrate,  wink

If you made a sponge cake and decorated the top with the design of your flag, then put a suitable motiff in the centre, what could be nicer and more fun?

Re: Ask me a cooking question

I know that blue jelly/ jello if avalible in America, I had to go to Walmart and buy a load for friend once. But thats not much help I know.

If it is any help , its easy to paint on that roll out fondant icing all you do is roll it out to the size and thisckess you want and let the surface dry a little before you paint on it with food colourings, I have a friend that makes painted icing disks that she then fixes on top of bought biscuits eith a little thin smear of buttercream icing , they are very prety.

Re: Ask me a cooking question

blueberry - the clue is in the name.
I could envision some kind of cake incorporating blue black and white, without resorting to food colouring

bllueberries give more of a purple colour than a true blue ,
I dot think food colouring is too bad to use as not much should be needed to create the colour
