iii. cooking time changes, and any other changes or guidance you can give me.
I look forward to hearing from you
Because of current health problems desperately need a clear soup. NO BITS in it, and not spicy. I live in Nambucca Heads Australia, and all the recipes here have meat or vegetables floating in them.
Hi , I make the basic white loaf a couple of times a week and it always turns out great .
Why do so many recipes call for at least 10 minutes of kneading?
I tried it with delias easy loaf and it made absolutely no difference at all.
Due to a change in working shifts, is it possible to make 24 hours ahead Delia's Lasagna, cottage and shepherds pies by making and placing in the refrigerator with clingfilm the day before I intend to cook them? Can you also suggest any other recipes that this can be done with?
I am making the Pappardelle with Wild Mushrooms and Tallegio as a vegetarian option for a lunch party. At the end of the recipe it says this can be made well in advance. Does this mean make up until the cooking time, then keep until ready to cook, or you can cook it then warm it up?
I think it means make up in advance until cooking stage, but just want to confirm
