the kind of skins you can see through..

(viewed 1822 times)
transparent rolling 'papers'. You can just see the one I've left on top of the packet. Made from mallow-derived cellulose.

Bought from here, yesterday at 16:00. Arrived this morning, somewhat less than 12 hours later.

duck consomme

(viewed 1523 times)
With whole cherry tomatoes, bamboo shoots, glass noodles and spring onions. Stock took almost 48 hours to make. See Heston Blumenthal's method* for ice clarification. Almost worked too. Except I didn't have a muslin bag, so had to use the less-fine "pair of tights" method, hence slight non-clearness.

Temperature probe, icing bag, ice tray.. what am I up to? (clue: not ice cubes shaped like hearts! I bought that tray 'cos it was the only one in silicone, not 'cos of the shape)

out of shot - gelatine, elder/apple cordial, sugar, butter, cream, chocolate.

the spice is right

(viewed 1530 times)
Chilli, black pepper, coriander, cumin, fivespice, salt, ginger. To be mixed with some flour and used to dredge to-be-roast potatoes. I'd rather use semolina as a bulking agent, but have run out.

Later, possibly tomorrow, photos of my ice-distilled duck consomme. If it works.

(viewed 1590 times)
with sea salt and dark chocolate. delicious. the irony of flavouring a caramel confection with a vinegar flavoured with caramel is not lost on me.
