The cookery thread

Recommended Posts

Time to bore you shitless on a Monday morning as per usual. Did some proper cooking on Saturday. A Sausage cassoulet. I cooked it in the morning and then left it covered in the oven until tea time when I heated it. Really enjoyed this. So easy and made tea time a breeze.

Some baking on Sunday. Found this Christmassy recipe for cinnamon roll biscuits. These probably needed a bit more melted butter to really hold them together but they taste great. Ate far too many. Diet on hold!

I love me some cinnamon and they look fantastic. How the hell did you lose all that weight, Rick, when you can make things like that? I’d quickly turn into a right fat little shit if I was that talented in the kitchen.

Go on, Rick, you've got Ralphy hooked.  Say you'll sell him some cakes then jack up the price!

Having a shit week but am at home with nothing to do so been doing a bit of cooking/baking.

Made a batch of Marinara sauce yesterday from a "Subway copycat" recipe. It was really good although I'd grate the onion next time rather than slice as I'm shit at finely slicing.

Froze a couple of batches and did one last night with Veggie meatballs and Mozzarella

Charity bake sale again at school this week so I did my gingerbread. Do you like a soft Gingerbread or crunchy?

Great work Rick. Re: chopping onions, El Gordono has a great video on the subject:

I also recommend as good a knife as you can afford. Makes all the difference.

@tiger_rick, have you tried using a V-Slicer?  When I’m doing a shit load of fine slicing I throw them through mine. 

I don't have one. Thought about it recently trying to thinly slice potatoes. Will add it to my list.

Yeah I posted that video I think in the Gordon Ramsey thread - that technique legit changed my life!

I've seen it on TV and used it fairly successfully before wgen I only needed half an onion but it just fell apart yesterday and I nearly cut my finger off. Realise I cut the ends off now!

You can use the wide side of a box grater (the one James Acaster says you don't use).
