comment How should I incorporate oil into focaccia?
I think the problem may be the quick rise. I ferment my BBA Foccacia for 3 days in the fridge, by which time the oil has soaked into the dough.

comment Fastest way to cook a baked potato?
I agree with a long cooking time for baked spuds. I prefer something like 180°C for 1.5 hours with no foil though. Just because you can cook something quickly doesn't mean you should.

comment How to get flour quesadilla light and crispy?
+1 for pan then oven. Thick burgers are a prime example - crust the outside in the pan, then finish in the oven: perfect.

comment Standardized symbols for marking food allergies / warnings?
A green V is very common for vegetarian food. I'd suggest a cow with a cross over it for non-dairy. Not sure about vegan - how does one symbolise incredibly boring food? ;)
