comment Cebiche dinner considered harmful
@TFD Thanks for your answer! Very informative. Do you know for how long they keep the fish into the lemon juice? A side note: Peruvian cooking is very elaborate with dishes usually comprising four or more garments/side-dishes. And there are restaurants that envy none, like this one: larosanautica.com/rn_intro_en.html

Also, be careful with the curation process of Wikipedia. Sometimes the content is way off the mark. In this case it cites the coastal zones of Argentina as a place to eat distinctly unique styles of cebiche. Being an Argentinian myself, I am pretty sure that the only places where you may eat (bad) cebiche here is in Peruvian restaurants.

Thanks for your answer. There is a slight difference that could save my day: while japanese use is to eat the fish really raw, the cebiche is immersed in acid (lemon juice) for several minutes.

@justk As per the faq Food handling and storage is on-topic, and cooking-myth is a tag. Also, if you re-read my question with a benevolent mood, you'll note that I'm not asking for a health professional opinion, but about how reasonable is hoping that fish meat will be good for eating raw after a day in a shadowy place. Also: now you know that cebicherias in Peru are closed at night and in Fiji they eat Kokoda anytime. I think these small pieces of knowledge are all about the JOY of cooking.

comment What is causing my butter toffee to separate?
There is a very long thread about the subject here cookingforengineers.com/recipe/159/English-Toffee. Too long to copy here. Seems the important things are: Use cane sugar, control temperature, use a pinch of salt, .... and have luck.

comment how to mix wine into cream sauce (or cream into a wine sauce) so it doesn't curdle
@Erik True, but a little diluted alcohol will not induce curdling (not very scientific, though). Also, as evaporation is an exponential process you loss less and less alcohol for each period ...

+1 Yep, in fact for naming something Anzak in Australia you must guarantee to follow the traditional recipe, or change the name, which is protected by federal legislation. adelaidenow.com.au/news/south-australia/…
