comment Is there a problem with defrosting meat on the counter?
I think there is an awful lot of paranoia around this topic. If you're sensible and cook and eat the defrosted produce within 24 hours the risk of dying of something is negligible.

Yes that's right - all us Indians eat unidentifiable meat every day. Its what gives our cuisine its unique taste. FFS.

comment Why is my green tea brown?
@hippietrail OK. I've recently discovered Gaenmaicha and really dig its toasted rice/popcorn aroma.

East is where it's at! The best Indian sweets are made in Kolkata, West Bengal.

comment Would a fruit cocktail flavoured cake work?
@TimBJames some commercially available tutti-fruitti mixes do taste cheap. But you could always try making your own (ehow.com/how_3910_make-candied-fruit.html makes a reasonable starting point). Things like angelica and maybe a liqueur add much 'class' to the mix ;-)

comment Why do you slice whole ducks in half when roasting but not for other poultry?
@Jay - everyone eats chicken skin apart from those on fat-restricted diets.

You could supplement the fruit flavours with Tutti Fruiti mix or your own hand-chosen mixture of candied peels and fruit and pistachios etc.

comment Better Scrambled Eggs
This is the only way to cook scrambled eggs. I tried this about a year ago and couldn't imagine making them any other way.
