Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi Jamie,

Please can you help my son Marshall who is nearly 7 months old has cows milk protein allergy and food protein intolerance so I am finding it very difficult putting meals together, at present he is unable to eat any dairy, potatoes (and sweet potato), rice, chicken, pork,lamb,beef, pear, fish, eggs, parsnips.

We are still in process of trying foods but have a limited amount of things he can have which are mainly veg, pasta, wheat, soya, tomatoes, apple, melon, as you can imagine I am struggling making food to fill him and to change round as the pasta is always with tomato sauce and the veg I mix together. I put apple or jam in porridge or wheatabix or use his special baby formula milk as a base......could you help in making some new things that are filling and different and that I could freeze for another day.

Regards
Rebecca help

Welcome to the forum Beckido1  smile


7 months old ...He's young to have discovered so many intolerances , is he being treated at a hospital for this problem ?

Eggs allergy is quite a problem , how did he react to his vaccinations ?

My advice to you is to slow down trying to introduce different foods at the moment , at 7 months old your baby has an immature digestive tract and although its good to give different tastes and textures his body  seems to be struggling to cope .

I am sure I didn't give my children wetabix until after they were 1 year old , the recommendations then were to try to keep the babies fairly gluten free for the first year .

So what could you try that he might like and is soft enough for a 7 month baby .
My suggestion is pollenta , it's made from corn meal and can have savoury things added to it . It's quite gentle on the stomach and very versatile .
You can make it softer to eat warm or you cold make a firm pollenta that can be cooled and once set it can be cut into chips or fried in slices ( when he's older for the later 2 suggestions) also as he matures you can use polenta to crum the outside of things like chicken to make chicken nuggets.

Lentils might also be useful for you as they are filling and versatile.
Years ago I ha a copy of Rosé Elliot's book which I think was called ' Vegetarian mother and baby ..it might be helpful for you to get hold of a couple of vegetarian and also vegan cookbooks with recipes in that are suitable for babies .there are loads of babies that are bought up as vegetarian and this might help you find the dietary restrictions easier.

Just be carefully not to introduce to many different flavours too quickly , keep foods simple and gentle for a while .

crossed He may eventually grow out of the majority of these intolerances . crossed

Hi there,
          I used my Jamie Oliver fire pit/ pizza oven for the first time yesterday. I followed instructions, heated the pizza stone for about 30 mins, the charcoal was white and I felt that it was really hot. The pizza did not cook properly and I was really disappointed. What am I doing wrong please.
                                 Thanks

Welcome to the forum sheilajay

What sort of topping did you have on the pizza (, I am assuming that it was homemade)
There are a few things that cold affect he way the pizza cooks , I think I'm right in saying that a thin crust is best for cooking in a wood fired pizza oven .(really quite thin )
If you put too much passata on the top of the pizza it makes it. Bit wet and the dough would then take longer to cook.
If you over top the pizza then this would also take longer for it to cook.
The best pizzas are topped sparingly.

Did you heat the oven with the front closed ( door on) I'm not an expert at cooking in one of these ovens by any manner of means but as far as I know the door needs to be on in order for the oven to get to the correct temperature.

What sort of mozzarella cheese did you use ?
The balls of mozzarella are very wet and this also affects the way the pizza cooks , I mainly use the firm mozzarella for pizza that can be cut into cubes or grated , if I use the balls of mozzarella that come in bags with fluid I ensure that they are very well drained .

We do have a forum member who builds wood fired ovens may be he might have some ideas as well as to why your pizza wasn't fully cooked .

Welcome to the forum She Looshka smile

What television show were you watching at the time this recipe was given ?
It might be easier for someone to help you if we knew as different television shows get shown in different parts of the. World at different times.

I'm looking for a recipe that you published in The Herald Sun with lamb, rice and sour cherries all in the one pot.  I made it for my family and they loved it but I have lost the paper and I can't find the same recipe anywhere.

Welcome to the forum SUMMER01 smile

What country are you in and how long ago was the recipe published ?

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi all

Was wondering if someone could enlighten me on some alternative  to watermelon in the 15min sticky kickin chicken recipe?  Its a cracking recipe but timing here in NZ heading into winter is not good for watermelon availability and I can't think what to substitute it with.

Any help and advice gratefully appreciated

Cheers
Nick

Re: Ask me a cooking question

I really love your Rhubarb and sticky stem ginger crumble recipe but wonder what other fruits could be used instead of the rhubarb but also goes with the stem ginger topping.
