    Nuts, I only drink coffee occasionally, never used it in cooking. Never liked it in cakes or desserts. I'll be interested to see others take on coffee. Tiramisu ? Maybe I'll find a new dessert??

    I entered a challenge on another forum which had this ingredient as a theme. It is surprising how many savoury dishes can be made using coffee. I only hope I can come up with something new in that department as I think most of those recipes I already posted on this forum.

    Being relatively new here, I havnt seen many coffee desserts. I may have missed though. I'm not big on desserts but my family and friends are.

    I'm not big on desserts either - hence my interest in coffee in savoury dishes.

    Mg, I had a look, absolutely amazing. It must be a man thing but I don't have that much patience to make that. Never ever. Is it a woman thing with so many details?? I would love to try your plate of scallops, complicated scallops.

    Thank you - its a chefy thing I think rather than a woman thing. I'm just pretentious and obsessive.

    I am too, but I'd never spend that much time on anything. I'm more of a 30 min cook, but do spend some time on things. For example I will spend 10 hours prepping and cooking but something quite simple for me like pig on the spit or a honky hangi. But those I don't do every year. I can cook a good meal in 20 mins.

    The recipe in question probably only takes 30 mins... :D

    30 for you, a lot longer for me. I like cooking without measurements, always been the same, not one for reading then next step. A man/woman thing I think?
