Q&A's? We are here to help. We being Delia and Lindsey. We work closely together and can answer any queries you have relating to Delia's recipes and our online Cookery School. Why not ask a question right now? What we can't do though, is answer questions about other recipes. (For general website queries or technical questions please click here)
I made the shortbread according to the recipe, but as I wanted thin biscuits I rolled them out with a rolling pin. The result was excellent, but I had some initial difficulty with the dough, which was too crumbly to roll out, even after chilling. I reshaped it, sprinkled a little flour and tried again. It worked, but it was still very crumbly and prone to breaking up. However, once cooked they were perfect.
I usually make soups in larger quantities than I need for 2 and then freeze the extra in portions.
Can Delia’s pumpkin (butternut squash) soup with toasted sweetcorn be frozen? I ask because it contains milk. Can soups containing milk (or semi-skimmed milk) be frozen and then defrosted/reheated or will the milk curdle?
Thanks for the advice.
I have made the Thai fish cakes from the "How to cook" series of books several times but despite chilling the fish cakes before cooking they often fall apart in the frying pan. Am I doing something wrong? How can I prevent this?
