ye-ha at last. update

Have not contributed much recently as I have been doing a paper or two: On 22 February 2011 Christchurch NZ had an earthquake. It severely damaged New Zealand's second-largest city, killing 185 people. The magnitude 6.3 (ML) earthquake struck at 12:51. It was 5 km deep and 5 kilometres from where I ...

Cracked it

I did not set out to recreate the commercial product, just a product that is less bad for my health and tastes a truck load better.My corned beef tastes stunning.

I make all my own breads. I cannot get my taste buds around rye sourdoughs or the wheat equivalents. What kind of starter do you use?

I often use day or two day old dough in my next loaf or make a sponge, biga or polish in my bread. This varies between 12 and 72 hrs old.

I use a layer of sun dried tomato paste: 30g sundried tomatoes 50g boiling water 50g Tomato puree Chop up the tomatoes roughly. Pour over the boiling water. W...

It usually has potatoes (mashed or fried), and spices that are mixed together and then fried either alone or with other ingredients such as o...

Almost there

If you dig back through my postings you will find that I have a love of lamb and have tried to produce my ultimate smoked lamb sausage. Well I have been working on a lamb sausage with Turkish/Merguez style for a while. Yes there are plenty of formulations out there, but most overpower the subtle fla...
