Do you really think if Piob had foie gras in his freezer, he would limit himself to a smaller portion?

It's okay. I think I've come up with a way to make use of a whole one.

What I do is let the lobe sit overnight in the fridge. It will become just soft enough I can use a sharp and thin knife to make my individual sized portions. Those portions I vacuum seal and put right back in the freezer. Been doing this for years with excellent results.

You need a gigli saw.

What brand non-stick pans do you guys use? Teflon or ceramic?

Also, can anyone recommend a good fishmonger that can ship a Turbot to me?

Wild? I can give you a phone number of someone that will. Check your inbox, bro.

Why am I so incompetent?

So I have this recipe that calls for making a batter with thick ribbons. I've made it thrice now. First two times I didn't have enough batter after what I thought were thick ribbons. The recipe says the batter should cover the top of the apples. So I made it again yesterday, figured I'd try it again. Maybe I beat the eggs too fast because they turned into a foam and became white. So basically, my question is, do I just run my beaters on the lowest speed for longer?

I do not think the scope of this thread could adequately address this question.

Mixing eggs and sugar (if the recipe calls for both) together until it's a foamy uniform mixture is usually a good idea. Other than that, I'm not really sure what you're asking for (I'm ignorant of the baking term "thick ribbons"). If you don't have enough dough, make more?

RIbbon is when you whisk together egg yolks and sugar until it gets white and ribbon like when it falls from the whisk. No idea how to help Ed, though.

Thanks, never heard of it.

Ed, I'm guessing you aren't beating your eggs fast enough. I make a Lamington receipe that calls for the same thing and I typically make sure everything is at room temp first. Then I beat the eggs at my Kitchenaids max speed and then slowly add the sugar. Also, make sure you're not adding any type of fat until after you've reached the desired thickness.


I need a non-stick pan, any brand recommendations?
