    Yes.

    There's a pretty good recipe in Under Pressure.

    Cool. Mind sharing the cooking time and temperature with me? I don't have that book.

    I'll do a measurement to measurement comparison, but anything "smaller" is really needed in my kitchen. And I wouldn't be trying for full meals out of it, rather single and small portions.

    also, the octopus is sealed in the bag with a sachet of thyme, rosemary, bay leaves, coriander, cumin, and chiles. Looks like a good recipe.

    Anyone ever had the fish swai? Was told it was a light, sweet catfish from Vietnam. It was fine, but it had NO flavor. Zippy. Made a nice sauce, which made the meal edible, but I was surprised at how boring the fish was.

    Lol, this is probably where it came from...

    If I'm not mistaken, Swai is one of the forms of Vietnamese catfish often sold as Grouper in the US.

    I want to try out some recipes, and I've really wanted to make a petit pate chaud - am I supposed egg wash this thing before I bake it? Before the top gets fluted? How do they get that nice two-tone look to them?

    1lb/person for turkey/ whats the minimum size of turkey that's worth buying, and I can scale guests/eat leftovers accordingly.
