Questions in this Episode:
“I called a few months ago about wanting to reproduce a green sauce I had in Frankfurt. I now want to report back on my results.”
“The recipes that I would most like to convert from 2" deep cake pans to a Bundt pan are those made with fresh fruits or vegetables such as zucchini cake, fresh apple cake, carrot cake, etc. Do these types of cakes adapt better to Bundt type pans?”
“What are your thoughts on roasting bones before preparing stock?”
“I would cook a lot more if I didn’t hate zesting so much. I read a recipe, it sounds yummy and doable, then I get to the ingredient that calls out X teaspoons of lime or lemon or orange zest. That ends the buzz for me. I know I’m missing a lot out of culinary life.”
“I recently came across a recipe for a lemon sheet cake that calls for self-rising flour. Is there an acceptable alternative?”
