    Heart (Diabetes, arthritis, etc.) health cooking

    Shermie and I were talking about each of us having high blood pressure. I'm sure many of us have a few health concerns that impact the way we cook and eat and even order out. I thought it might be interesting for us to share some tried-n-true recipes and tips for those of us that have moved...

    Crayfish (Pacifastacus leniusculus) 2020, before and after

    We catch these with crayfish traps filled with luring pieces of fish bits. Our summer place is located at the mouth of a canal between two lakes. The crabs should be garnished with crown dill but a sudden night frost killed our dill earlier this month so we had to use lingonberry twigs. I bought...

    Cooking burnout during the pandemic

    Hi, I am an introvert so the lock down isn't really bothering me on the same level it's bothering my extroverted friends. I love to cook but I can relate to feeling burnout too. I thought some of you might like to read it this article on coping through the pandemic. Cooking Burnout During The...

    Cooking Shows

    I am into "Chopped" now. Loving the weird food twist(s) in the contestant's baskets and am continuously amazed at what they come up with and prepare. Awhile ago, one DD and I were into "Hell's Kitchen" with Gordon Ramsey. That show was more for kicks and his pretentious chewing out of the...

    Cooking in long sleeves

    Do you? Most of the time I wear my sleeves rolled up anyway so it's not an issue. A couple of days ago, an unexpected cold spell sent me in search of a woolly jumper, mid cooking. Without thinking, I was suddenly reaching over lit gas burners, my sleeves mere inches away from naked flames. :eek...

    Cooking failures

    I thought I'd start a thread where we could share our cooking failures. We all have them. We eventually laugh and learn from the experience, but some can be traumatic. I'll share a couple of mine. Years ago I decided to make my own birthday cake. I love baking but I don't eat cake. I have a...

    Hello from Saffron Walden

    My Homeground I live in Saffron Walden in Essex which is a small market town. Walden no longer grows saffron, but to replace it there is an exceptional twice a week food and fish market. Surprisingly, given the proximity of Cambridge, the Walden market is much more successful. Jamie Oliver'...

    My Serbian family loved my wok cooking.

    Last year when we visited Krusevac the wanted me to cook some of the Chinese food I made for the ones that visited here. I have gas here so I can get a passable flame. They only have electric. "Chef" Zokko who has a restaurant told me not to worry, they would make something. I took the key...

    Are you cooking more or less since COVID shut down the world?

    My issue with cooking has often been finding the time to do it. That's why I'm The Late Night Gourmet: my days are so full that I don't have much time until it's late at night. Between a long drive to and from work (40 miles each way), and long hours spent in the office, there are only so many...

    Wok Cooking

    Does anyone cook in a wok? I have found that you can't achieve temperatures on the stove top/hob to properly cook with a wok. Maybe if you have a commercial gas stove you can get to "Wok Hei" temperatures. I have started using one of my single burner propane cookers to get to the correct...

    Cooking a dying art?

    Ciao a tutti, This might be controversial. I saw a disturbing programme last night on TV, it was made last year. It says that the numbers of young Italian women and girls are not being taught to cook by mama any longer because many are just disinterested or prefer a career. An interview with a...

    New Year cooking resolutions

    Do you have any cooking related New Year resolutions? Maybe a resolve to cook 'healthier' meals or perhaps to eat vegan or vegetarian food more often. Maybe you intend to be more experimental and cook some types of cuisine that you have never tried before?

    Old Cooking Utensils You still Use

    Wifie still uses an old Krupp Austrung Werks hand mixer. 20 to 1 open gear ratio, burled red oak and nickel handle and crank. You can still jump start a Buick with it. I love it. Do you still use any old kitchen tools?
