Cook the Book: 'The Catch'

Good old battered fish and chips. It's a simple but satisfying dish.

Basic Huevos Rancheros

This was awesome! Don't care about it ethnicity.

Crostini With Fontina and Tomato Marmalade From 'The Glorious Vegetables of Italy'

Nooo! 'Win book' link doesn't work.

Cook the Book: 'Indian Cooking Unfolded'

Tandoori chicken.

American Breakfast roll Sausage

Hey! The sausages taste pretty close. Wee tweak here and there. I used pork shoulder. The sausages are a bit tough. Any suggestions on how to fix that?

American Breakfast roll Sausage

Whoa! Didn't expect to get this many replies and didn't get any notifications and forgot to check back in. Thanks!

@lorenzo Your powers of deduction are amazing! It's NY I usually visit and they are patties.

Does that mean I should use the Kutas recipe?

Barbecue: Pulled Pork

I've not got a smoker and I know not making it in a smoker will make it lose it edge but can you do this in an oven?

Basic New York-style Pizza Dough

Basic New York-style Pizza Dough

I'm making this bad boy tonight! What sauce would you recommend for it? Trying to create NYC pizza in Glasgow is tricky :(

For my NY Peeps - Needs local places to eat

Thanks everyone! I'm now in NYC and starting to work through the list :)

For my NY Peeps - Needs local places to eat

@korovka and @kathryn thanks for your help!

...I ate in island burgers 12 years ago, is it still as good?

For my NY Peeps - Needs local places to eat

@freets Yeh, I've read it. The places they aren't necessary local to the place I'm staying.

@eliselaurel this might be doable! :)

Oversized soft drinks to be banned in N.Y.C...

Do they still sell the Super Size meals in the US? They stopped it in the UK and I don't actually miss them. It was a total impulse thing.

Greek-American Lamb Gyros

@dsloth - cheers! I was pretty sure I could use the Indian bread now you've confirmed it :)

Greek-American Lamb Gyros

I live in Scotland and I really like Gryos (though haven't had one in years because we don't get them here), they seem like a healthier version of the donna kebab...not sure if it's true but I like to think it is.

I've never seen the type of bread they use for gyros in Scotland, the closest is nanbread. It'd be good to get a recipe for the bread so I don't need to travel 3000 miles to eat a gyro again :)

Where to Eat In NYC and Astoria Queens?

I'm heading back to NYC and looking for some recommendations for places to eat at lunch, dinner, weekends.

I love burgers and pizza but open to anything and everything. I'm there for 3 weeks so the list can be pretty big.

American Breakfast roll Sausage

Hello!
One of my favourtie things when I visit the US is getting a poppy seed roll with scrambled egg, cheese and sausage.

I can almost replicate it back home except for the sausage. Can someone tell me how to make the sausage patties?

For my NY Peeps - Needs local places to eat

Hey! I'm in NY in a couple of weeks for 7 days and staying at the Hudson hotel on 58th/9th.

I need some tips for food in the local area as well as further afield.

Top priorities for me are:
Breakfast (needs to be super local :D)
Pizza
Burgers
Hotdogs

Come on guys give it to me!!

Also, if you think there is somewhere I 'NEED!' to go to throw it in.

The Burger Lab: How To Make The Ultimate Bacon Cheeseburger

If there is one universal culinary truth, it's that bacon is easy, which probably explains why I don't often order it on my burger. It takes the fun and the challenge out of the whole thing. Pretty much any burger's gonna taste good with a pile of crisp bacon on top of it, right? Well today we're throwing decency to the wind. I don't often eat bacon on my burgers, but when I do, I want them to be the baconiest bacon burgers I can eat. More

Creamy Cole Slaw

Classic cole slaw of deeply flavored, sweet-and-tangy cabbage. The secret is to do a rapid purge of excess cabbage liquid with a quick cure of salt and sugar before tossing the shreds in a creamy dressing. More

Taiwanese Oyster Omelet

Partially translucent from a sticky and somewhat mysterious goo binding fried egg and bits of oyster, and slick with a sweet-and-sour ketchup-based sauce, the Taiwanese oyster omelet is one memorable dish that has a fervid following. More

Pizza Lab: How to Make Ramen Crust Pizza

It looks like pizza, smells like pizza, it even tastes a little like pizza, but it's not pizza. At least, not inasmuch as pizza is defined by its bread-based crust. The slice you are looking at shares much in common with pizza. It's got gooey melted cheese. It's got a robust tomato sauce that balances zestiness and sweetness with just the right bit of zip. It's got a crisp underbelly and a soft, moist, tender interior. It just happens to be made with noodles instead of dough. More

Grilling: Breakfast Sausage

I go straight into hoarding mode at the first sign of cooling air. My summer freezer, once bare except a bag of ice and a container of homemade ice cream, starts filling with meats to get me through the fall and winter. I've recently added one staple to my growing collection of pulled pork and sausages, something I couldn't live without during hibernation mode: breakfast patties. More

Raspberry-Campari Sorbet

If you like your desserts more tart than sweet, this sorbet is for you. And if you're a little addicted to the pleasantly bitter taste of Campari, this sorbet is really for you. It's more tart than sweet with a bitter kick that makes for an especially clean-tasting sorbet. More

Grilling: Spicy Roasted Poblano Sausage

There's a love affair brewing between my meat grinder and myself, with these roasted poblano sausages a product of that. The links had a nice snap from the casing that gave way to a sea of porky goodness, leaving a pleasing, mild heat lingering on the tongue, making any resistance for sausage seconds futile. More
