• Is it difficult to make bechamel sauce?

    Best answer: Not really. It's possible to do it in an all-in-one way - equal weights of flour and butter, plus enough milk to make it the thickness you want, and keep whisking over heat in a pan. Make sure it cooks for at least 10 minutes in total or it will taste of raw flour. I still prefer the traditional roux method,... show more

    I still prefer the traditional roux method, though. What I do is melt the better in a saucepan, then off the heat stir in flour to make the roux paste, then back on the heat, stir in milk a little splash at a time. What I've worked out over the years is think of it as making the roux absorb the milk, when it has, a splash more, keep going, once it's becoming less of a paste and more of a sauce, you can add more milk at a time until it's all in. It MUST cook for at least 10 minutes in total as I said before. A little at a time will prevent lumps. Always works for me!

  • Can one take cooking from scratch too far?

  • How can I remove the effect of over-curried meals?

    I'm on a weight watchers diet, but most of the weight watchers food my locat Iceland supermarket sells is lovely except it's ruined by curry or other spices that are far too strong.

    I'm on a weight watchers diet, but most of the weight watchers food my locat Iceland supermarket sells is lovely except it's ruined by curry or other spices that are far too strong. I want to keep eating the prepared food, so please don't tell me to prepare my own (I'm a terrible cook anyway), but what I'd love to do is be able to add something to the meal to take the curry effect away, or cancel it out. So what could I add that would make these otherwise fine meals edible? Thank you.

  • I m a vegetarian and I just ate some lice – is that OK? Does it count as meat?

    Best answer: If it was on purpose then technically not vegetarian.

    However little bugs like that are simple and don't suffer the same complex pain as a larger animal.

  • Why do I have problems with vegans, but not vegetarians?

    Vegetarians are usually sensible and understanding, and choose to be vegetarian for medical/ health reasons, religion, a sense of morality, etc. I have no problem with that.

    Vegetarians are usually sensible and understanding, and choose to be vegetarian for medical/ health reasons, religion, a sense of morality, etc. I have no problem with that. Vegans on the other hand tend toward the extreme, looking down on everyone else, even vegetarians. They even look down on other vegans who are not as "pure" as they are. It seems to me more like a cultist religion that demands absolute perfection. I was shocked recently to hear that even avocados are not considered vegan anymore because at some point humans forcibly relocated bees to California.
