Re: Ask me a cooking question

Why is your 'bloomin-brilliant-brownies' recipe absolutely shockingly awful ?!!!!!!! I have tried them twice doing exactly what you say with the exact amount of ingredients however they fail every time and its a waist of ingredients when your site says without "fail" on it ? please could you revise your information.

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hey smile

I have a question concerning the cooking time of all different sorts of meats. I have a couple of your books and I just love trying all the amazing things but since I only live together with my boyfriend and therefore only cook for two people I have way too many leftover. That is why I was wondering if there is a broad rule or something like that which can help me figuring out how to shorten the cooking time. For example I tried to cook the roastbeef that is in your Save with Jamie book. Instead of using 2kg of meat I used just 1 but totally forgot to shorten the cooking time. I ended up with way too dry meat... And now I want to try the pork shoulder (same book) but instead of 1/2 a shoulder I got three pieces of about 1.3kg since they did not have a whole shoulder. Since this one has two different baking times I am really not sure what exactly to do about it.

Thank you and everyone else who can help me soooo much!! I'd be really thankful for every suggestion  smile

Re: Ask me a cooking question

I've just bought the save with Jamie cook book.I'm sure the calories quoted for some recipes are never correct.Minestone 449? seems very high for a veg soup.Other that the calories looking a bit off kilter it's a good book...I like the style thumbsup

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Welcome to the forums, lynne.cook167 wave, I've just looked at the recipe for minestrone in "Save with Jamie". The calories would be coming from:

*The oven roasted veg tossed in a "good lug of OO" (diced also gives a greater surface area for fat/oil);

*Borlotti beans;

*Pasta;

*The frozen peas and/or broad beans;

*The ciabatta croutons are tossed in OO.

*EVOO is drizzled over just prior to serving.

All healthy ingredients but things do add up.

Hope this helps smile.

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Jamie-
Many years ago you did a fish pie recipe on your show. If I remember correctly it was from your parents pub. The recipe contained salmon or whitefish, onions/leeks celery, hard boiled eggs & peas in a whitesauce, topped with mashed potatoes. I haven't made it for a while and now cannot find the recipe that I wrote down while you were preparing the dish. I have most of your cookbooks and the recipe is not in any of them. Wondering if you recall this recipe and if so could I get it.

Re: Ask me a cooking question

How do you store spring onions in the fridge? 
A chef I knew years ago used to prep his and put them in a screwtop glass jar with the root ends in a tiny drop of water.  Can't remember whether it worked for me or not.

Whilst on storage;  I've found the best way to keep cucumber is to wrap in tin foil, carefully sealing it before storing in the fridge.  Lasts very well.

I'm speaking for Jamie so you will have to forgive me but I think you are referring to his "fantastic fish pie" from his "Return of the Naked Chef" book.  It doesn't have peas but spinach but I think he serves it with peas in the tv episode.  He says he likes to eat it with baked beans and tomato sauce, yes??  If you like I will post the recipe if you don't have the book. smile  smile
