I can't tell you why it works - possibly alteration of sodium or calcium channel response in the taste receptors? - but I've seen Indian cooks use lemon or lime juice in much the same way to cut down the heat of a too-hot curry. It's definitely a done thing.


i uses a couple of slices of bread, just lay it on top of the mince and then leave for a few minutes and then scoop the bread our it absorbs a fair amount of oil. I normally do this twice. I then put the oiled side up on a tray and bake it in the oven till its like toast my kids love that bit (I cut it in too strips and they scoop there mince up with it) :)


This is a really old post, so you might nit even see my answer, but to go off what eatstatic said, Ive seen recipes online that say 1 cup water : 3/4 cup tomato paste. Eatstatic just did it the other way around, 1 cup tomato paste : 1 1/3 cup water. These recipes almost always start with sautéing onions and garlic in olive oil, and adding an optional cup of ...


A lot of commercial mayonnaises/aiolis use whole eggs, which doesn't darken the mixture as much as egg yolks alone. The restaurants you speak of could be doing the same. Also, what kind of oil are you using? When I use sunflower oil in aioli, it's lighter than something like olive oil. Alternatively, ChefSteps etc. use titanium dioxide to make things ...


In the U.S. Marinara is a vegetarian Italian style tomato sauce and it may have olive oil and cheese like parmesan mixed in. But never meat or anchovies. Spaghetti Sauce in the U.S. is culinary slang for manufactured tomato sauce served over spaghetti.

I think your best bet will be to simply increase the volume of the sauce by adding more whole tomatoes... for ease a can of tomatoes of some sort, either whole (peeled), diced, or crushed; or if you prefer, use fresh tomatoes, which will require some more work. Either way, you may want to strain out the seeds if you don't like them. You may have to ...

A spaghetti sauce only says where to sauce is used (obviously on spaghetti) but doesn't say anything about what the sauce is exactly like.

I have been wondering for YEARS what the distinctive flavor is that I have experienced only in pizza sauce (not all, but some over the years). After researching the net, I think the ingredient is fennel. While some may use this in spaghetti sauce, the spice isn't typically mentioned in recipes.


The original Valencian allioli and Maltese aljoli don't have egg yolk in its receipe. Egg yolk makes emulsification easier but it isn't necessary. Garlic itself is already an emulsifier. Allioli is made by pounding garlic with olive oil and salt in a mortar until smooth. The oil should be added little by little -- otherwise the emulsion breaks.
