Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi Jamie,

I have a question regarding beef. I sometimes experience a taste of liver in meat which I dislike very much. While living in Australia I found it a lot, and now in Europe I find it from time to time.

I have not been able to identify a a specific cut (last time it was in top blade) that would have the taste or be free from it. I usually spend a bit extra cash on good meat, but no butcher has been able to tell me if it is the meat, or my cooking that causes the flavour. I haven't been able to identify a cooking method that causes it either.

Are you familiar with this, and could you explain where this taste comes from so that I can avoid it?

Thanks
Markus

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi Jamie!
2 questions for the busy man.

1stly, what are your views on fusion food mixing flavours of one locality and incorporate into another? Do you have an example recipe of this?

2ndly, from where did you learn about Asian food? Saw you on the telly recently doing satay and peanut sauce. Not exactly authentic but your simplicity excites me to learn more.

Cheers and viva food revolution!

Re: Ask me a cooking question

to Jamie or to anyone with experience

um I have a question about ice cream, home made ice cream. I have seen variants with vanilla custard with eggs and then whipped cream based ice cream. what would be the best kind of recipe if I dont have an ice cream machine and just a regular refrigerator / freezer? and do I absolutely have to stir the ice cream in the freezer every now and then till it is done or can I just leave it for a day? thing is, in the regular freezer it freezes into a lump of ice.  can I even make it in these kinds of conditions? and should I use the egg-based recipe or the cream-based one?

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Greetings Redfox of Estonia!
A trick i normally use to avoid having cream or milk turning into lumpy icesicles is to put the cream in a container or plastic bag then submerge it in water in a bigger container or bowl.  This buys you at least one day when the freezer only attacks the water but not the cream. Once the water starts to freeze, replace it and continue the process until you get a nice icecream.

As for egg-based or cream based, i would personally go cream based with milk. Good luck and all the best! Would love to hear Jamie's comments though. wink
