Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi Jamie!,
Firstly I am a big fan of you. I am from Istanbul. My name is Elif Yasa. And I am 12 years old. I went to your restaurant in London and I LOVED IT! I left a comment also. This year in my school Eyuboglu College, I joined International Cooking Club. We are cooking some desserts, meals from different countries like Italy, Greece, Spain, England etc. I heard that you will open a restaurant in Istanbul. And when I heard It I was too excited. My plan is to go your place!!!! It will be my favorite restaurant. When you will come to Istanbul can visit us in our school?. And attend our International Cooking class. We will be very pleased if you come to our school.
P.S: Our club  teacher is also English.
Loves to Big Cook,

from Little Cook Elif smile

Re: Ask me a cooking question

I bought Brisket today to make the mothership roast but mine looks much fattier than Jamie's did. Is mine just a poorer quality of meat or is brisket fairly fatty?

Thanks

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hello Jamie! I am a big fan from Brazil. I wanna know if you have ever tried to cook a tipical brazilian snack called "Coxinha de Galinha". If so, tell me, but i bet that you must come to my country to taste the very different ones and their quality!
Even Nigella, when she came to Brazil some months ago, said in a famous tv show that it's really amazing and she would try to reproduce the recipe in London.

Welcome to the forum chartley007 smile
Brisket can ( but not lways ) be quite fatty , I have found that a lot depends on the butcher that you go to as to how the cut of meat is prepared .

Re: Ask me a cooking question

I can appreciate that you need to buy larger pieces of meat to save money, but with only 2 of us at home, and a small freezer, this is not practical.
What do you reckon is the optimum weight of joint to buy for 2 people and still get value (without over filling the tiny freezer).
How do I adjust cooking times and temperatures for these smaller sized joints, is ther a rule of thumb ?
Love the new show, by the way, and the beef was the tenderest I have ever eaten, and we loved the stir fry with the shredded beef. smile

I answered on your other post about the pork shoulder.

Perhaps you can save in other ways.  For instance, I can usually get 3 portions out of one NY strip steak or pork chop or one chicken breast if I slice or chop it up for soup, chicken pot pie, Thai beef salad, fajitas, Asian noodle dishes, etc.

Cheaper take-out and restaurant options are usually not going to compare in quality to the ingredients you put in to homemade food, so even if you spend a little more for smaller cuts, you'll be getting more value for the money.

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi guys...

First, let me say how much I LOVE Jamie and all he does for kids all around the world.  His Food Revolution is amazing.  Now for my question...when will Jamie's "Save With Jamie" be available in the states...?

Thanks,
