I have been reviewing the recipe for SUMMER FRUIT MILLEFEUILLE and read about the pastry being put on the "grill". WHAT? This is odd. As it's a summer recipe and in today's world people (at least in the US) have begun grilling EVERYTHING and I do mean EVERYTHING I think OK, maybe this is a summer version of this type of recipe. I've made other recipes very similar and bake the pastry in an oven. After going through it again I began to rethink and thought, perhaps when Delia is speaking of the "grill" she means the broiler in the oven. So this is what I need to discover. When a British baker speaks of the grill are they actually referring to the broiler in the oven? For us in the states when we hear the word "grill" it means that gas or charcoal equipment on the back porch or deck or outside. The extremely hot part of the oven is called a "broiler". Used to melt quickly, brown quickly and so forth. People have always grilled steaks, burgers, fish, even seafood but now salads. (yes, often bunches of romaine. I don't like it) And every vegetable and fruit grown. Bread slices, meatballs, watermelon, sandwiches, polenta, pound cake, and ones I don't even know yet.
