comment Is there a device that can be used to grate coconut and sweet potatoes electrically?
These seems more than a little bit overkill. Yes, stand mixers are great versatile tools if you can spare the expense and the counter space; this guy just wants to grate coconuts. It's like recommending a propane torch to light a few birthday candles.

It's not electrical, but what about a mandoline with a julienne blade? It's pretty easy to get "grated" consistency from that, unless you're going for the really fine pulp-like consistency. And most of the good ones have a top piece that you can use to hold the thing you're grating, so there's no danger to your hands.

comment Is it possible to make a wheat free/gluten free/dairy free apple pie?
Strange, in every supermarket here, you can find lard (Tenderflake) right next to the shortening. I've never thought of it as a rare or ethnic ingredient.

comment How do I make a foam?
Haha @yossarian, always a good idea to keep it simple on the first try! I'd still suggest trying some of his suggestions if you run into trouble next time.

Interesting, @yossarian: Did you also follow Michael's suggestions on how to incorporate more air? That could be part of the problem too.

comment Can I make Crème Brûlée using a flambé?
@chris: I made crème caramels for the same event, but I didn't flambé them. There's really nothing to flambé; as you've noted, the sugar is already turned into soft caramel.

comment Amount of food to prepare for bagel & lox brunch
Well Joel, with all respect, this is kinda off-topic, and as much as I hate to close a question from Our Lord And Savior, it's basically been answered and we ought to be setting the right example here, so... closed it is.

comment Pouring cold water on pasta after cooking it
I rearranged your last sentence; even though I eventually understood what you meant, it seemed a little odd reading the phrase "...boiling in ice-cold water".
