    Are there recipes you won't share?

    There should be no secrets in cooking. The more good recipes shared the happier everyone will be.

    Can anyone reccomend a good curry recipe book?

    The Curry Secret by Kris Dhillon is my go to book for curry. It recreates the authentic British curry taste. The most important part is making the base "gravy". If that is not right then none of your curry dishes will be right.

    To stir or not to stir ... that's the question, certainly with risotto...

    I stir all the time and use Carnaroli as that was the way I was taught. My first risotto many years ago turned out perfectly using this method  and has done ever since so the way I see it is...why change?

    salting - do you shake or sprinkle?

    I have a large salt pig next to the stove that holds about 2 boxes of Maldon. I haven't got a shaker for the kitchen or the table. I sprinkle and taste along the way. If my hands are damp I dry them.

    Fun japanese knifework

    Thanks for that OP. However, you could have told me the clip you linked to had no knifeskills in it whatsoever and thereby saved me wasting 8 minutes of my life....

    Your Favorite Kitchen Smell

    Another vote for onions and garlic frying gently in olive oil. There is simply nothing like it!

    Does anyone REALLY wash veggies with soap? Or is it just my compulsive husband?

    I'm frankly amazed that anyone could even think of washing vegetables using soap!

    Tinned Chopped Tomatoes.

    Why? Just why? I've also noticed that they cost a few pennies more than whole plum tomatoes too. Is it too much trouble to chop them yourself or break up with a wooden spoon? I just crush them by hand. It's something i've never quite understood. google_ad_section_end
