Lunch around Kings Cross

Smithfield isn't especially close to kings cross. I second. Gilbert Scott or Plum and split milk perhaps.

When do you eat your salad?

I am. I do travel quite a lot though and have never experienced it at the end of a meal.

What type(s) of cuisine are you just not interested in cooking?

That geography is huge. They can be really quite different.

When do you eat your salad?

Where in Europe eat in after the main course? *looks around*. Salad is with the main unless a more complex salad *is* the main or starter.

Over here in the UK, "ASDA" (Walmart) has its own in-store radio station. Quite cheerful really.

I wonder though as "Indian", "African", "Asian" each cover many different cuisines. Can people narrow it down?

The little book of fast food is brilliant. I think I need to replace my old copy!

What is *that* flavor in Chinese duck.

think also that the peppercorn are meant to taste more soapy if they are raw-ish. Might not be those at all of course, but I struggled to think of too much other than maltose that would go by default onto our little avian friends.

They are found in crispy fragrant duck (xiang su ya).

Sichuan peppercorns? They can be a bit lemony and soapy.

What add-ins (if any) would your ideal cookie contain? Soft and chewy or crispy-crunchy?

Definitely shortbread. Although recently I have been thinking about doing something with salted almonds and chocolate.

http://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/bi... uses cream, but I haven't tried it. Otherwise use up the cream in the chocolate topping.

COOKING CLASS IDEAS - help?!?

How about roll-your-own sushi? Can be veggie or use smoked salmon. Just chopping and sushi rice as prep and plenty of hands on fun.

You could also find something that keeps the buttermilk aspect if you like that:

Greek style pan pizza?

Well, we have Greek, we have Cypriot and we have places that seem to have merged the two. The internet has taught me that "Greek pizza" is a thing though, like "Chicago pizza". http://slice.seriouseats.com/archives...

Greek style pan pizza?

No, Lahmancun isn't what BT is after at all by the sound of it, being neither cheesy or pan and pide is flat also, but as I said, I think the "Greek pizza" is more to be found in New England than the original England.

Greek style pan pizza?

Not sure about Greek, but there is plenty of Turkish pizza about in London (Lahmacun) but that is very much a flat bread offering and not pan. A quick sweep of the web suggests that the "greek pizza" you describe is common in New England in the US but I have never seen it here.

Minced garlic and ginger paste

Good tip about flattening the bags. I am too often trying to chisel bits off a frozen block!

I hadn't thought about trying to grow it. I'd love to, but I'd be worried that the dogs would eat it!

Minced garlic and ginger paste

Do you have any recipes (or links) which call for it in marinades or otherwise as you mention and where it does work? I may as well use up this stuff!

Minced garlic and ginger paste

Certainly if cooking larger quantities. It is also mildly irritating that the pestle and mortar technique does seem to taste a bit better than "machine with spinning blades"
