Homemade Baba Ganoush Dip Help?

You ideally want to char it over a flame or barbeque. Sauteing it isn't going to give you the smokey flavour which is part of the point of the drish. Given your choices, grill it and as Coll said perhaps add some smoked spice.

Cooking cheap and healthy with gifted food

An apple with slices of cheese and a hunk of bread is a traditional on the go lunch in the UK. If you like the combination the internet will offer other ways to pair them - cheese and apple scones, cheese and apple pie, even a grilled cheeses sandwich with slices of apple in it.

I haven't been actually but I pass through Bath sometimes, so maybe I will get to check it out at some point.

Is it possible to connect bread together?

Even if you have no hob for a skillet you can make dough and bake it in the toaster oven as if you were making a pizza base. You can find various recipes for this online.

Moderately-priced London restaurants?

Quirky East London is definitely cheaper, and sometimes more interesting. We tend to point people towards fine(r) dining on these boards as tourists are often after the big names and we want them to have a experience that is more or less guaranteed. But if one drinks less and explores more it is easy to eat out reasonably (I won't say cheaply) and perhaps also without the discretionary 12.5% service charge.

On the odd occasion that I venture up North I definitely enjoy the prices. Although I find it hard to stop shivering.

S'ok. My reply wasn't exactly serious either ;)

Price ratings here: https://community.opentable.com/t5/FA...

££ = £25 and under
£££ = £26 - £40
££££ = £41 and over

(they don't show anything for one £)

Moderately-priced London restaurants?

Not that I know of. Here it is loosely applied to a sub culture (not very underground at all) that likes to cultivate beards, third generation coffee and places with raw wood tables and exposed lighting. I like all of these other than the beards, which I like less.

Moderately-priced London restaurants?

It kind of depends on what your thing is. Hoxton , Shoreditch etc are Hipster havens. You get plenty of cool cocktail bars around the area - for example nightjar is close by https://www.barnightjar.com/ and it would be a place for a night out.
There is also a street art tour if you like that http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Attracti... and Brick lane isn't all that far away.

Why did my chicken stock ended up too spicy?

This thread suggests that lemon juice and sugar helped

Well, if you find yourself in the area, you can always try the East London incantation by the same people: http://www.8hoxtonsquare.com/

restaurant near Waterloo

If you want a bit informal, cheaper and not Italian I actually like Wahaca on the south bank or the dosa at Bangalore Express opposite the station.

Non-Cook: Where to Start?

I am not affiliated with these people in any way, nor have I used them, but it struck me that there are companies that shop for you and delivery food with recipes to follow such as http://www.hellofresh.co.uk/london?gc...
It might be an easy way to start, although obviously there is a cost.

Should vindaloo be sweet?

well, it seems to vary whether it does or does not - which makes perfect sense.

My goodness, you are right! I wonder why I thought it was Mr Granger.
Granger does have London restaurants but much fewer branches: http://grangerandco.com/

Should vindaloo be sweet?

Having a quick look around restaurant menus here in London it seems to vary whether they state potatos or not. The cook in sauce recipes seem not to. On you reference to "aloo" it is not the case then that the name derived from the Portuguese dish Carne de Vinha d'Alhos? I'm just curious actually. It is always interesting how food arrives and recipes change.

Peanut Butter and. . .

On toast, but too much peanut butter on toast is claggy, so instead butter the toast and then just add the thinnest amount of peanut butter here and there. Really good.

Wiki also states that a traditional Vindaloo does not contain potatoes.

His baked porridge is quite prolific on food blogs. So hopefully the restaurant food will follow!

British dinner thoughts

Pie followed by a suet pudding might be overkill. I also can't think of anyone who actually eats those things. Roast lamb or shepherd's pie are nice ideas but I quite like the idea of a small portion of aromatic curry with a refreshing beer.
You could also do tiny yorkshire puddings with beef and gravy inside.

A pudding course with a dessert wine or whiskey may be a lovely way to end. Something like sticky toffee pudding or a scottish cranachan or even Eton mess.
