Where are you from? Is it something that could be from a local shop?

comment Do restaurants regularly disinfect baskets and trays?
Unlike @SAJ14SAJ, I spent years working in (lower grade) "professional" kitchens that served on dinnerware, baskets and trays-- none of which were cleaned regularly. That said, they are supposed to be. I think this question is hard to answer in that each restaurant behaves different and each region/state/country has varying laws.

comment Are there any vegetarian-friendly egg substitutes that can be used in cakes?
@PatSommer I've seen a lot of some recipes that include egg. As a vegan I cut it out entirely. So I was falling in line with the original question (from a different thread, before my question was merged). That said- I agree with you. Overworking is far more likely the issue here.

@SunishthaSingh - If you use strong enough flavors over the banana it doesn't come through too much, and the dough is softer. Kept in the fridge I've had then for a week or so. That said, the Ener G egg replacement (ener-g.com/gluten-free/egg-substitute.html) is the best I've found.

Google "vegan scones". That's how I found all the recipes I use. I even blogged a few of the best ones. Also, I use the Ener G egg replacer in most baking but bananas work well and make for a soft texture if used properly (they just tend to change the flavor).

comment How to stop meatballs falling apart when frying
I'm not sure that saying "the only way is..." would be correct. There are a lot of factors that need to be considered. I have used alternatives to flour and had balls that hold together plenty well (breadcrumbs, etc.) and many of the other answers support that theory.

comment What is the best way to store homemade sauces?
I've found that glass storage containers are a little better for flavor retention. Perhaps freezing them in glass would work?
