    I've actually just bought half a litre of grapeseed oil since most of you and many recipes (mostly English/American) call for it.

    I believe the chicken fat/roasting fat would be typical. You could use olive oil, etc. With those squash gnocchi a few weeks ago I broke it with hazelnut oil and it was pretty good.

    Whatever you like. Cooking fat is always good. Hazelnut oil can be excellent as it gives the idea of brown butter but is lighter on the palate. Foie gras fat. Anything you like.

    There was a quail jus I made that I broke with orange blossom water. It added a nice perfume.

    Foie gras fat with chicken sounds about right.

    I sense lots of distress regarding Germany in many posts. Speak freely!

    Orange blossom water reminds me of rose water. Definitely need to get this and do the pickled red beet. It was so good.

    Germany is redeemed by the fact that the Swiss and the Austrians exist.

    I'm glad you've accpeted me to the outer circle then.

    @AEK: Wieso Arschkarte? Eigentlich hat er doch genau das Gegenteil getan! Man man man, AEK, du solltest erst einmal deine Gedanken scharf stellen, bevor du einen Beitrag verfasst - wie beim Fotografieren! :sly:
    Glad you've found a new signature though.

    It's this stuff. From Lebanon. The smell reminds me of a perfume my grandmother would wear. It's strong, and has to be used very sparingly, but it works well with something like quail or squab.

    Yeah, stuff like that is really nice.
    You have to try out the "recipe" I've posted in the recipe thread. Thinly slice red beets, vacuum them with rose water and raspberry for 10 minutes (yeah, that's enough!), enjoy. You've got to figure out the correct ratios, but it'll be worth it. Now that I think of it, I'm not sure whether they were pre-cooked, but I think they weren't as they didn't mention anything like that.

    It's über, duh! If you already try, try harder.

    But honestly, what's all the fuss about German words in your vocabulary? Things I've read on this forum and in general: kindergarten, rucksack (both the most famous examples I guess), then verboten and doppelganger here on the forum. It's like the opposite of an Anglizismus in German (like cool, party, smartphone; i.e. half of the current language of German teenagers). Are they associated with a negative prejudice, or just considered cool (hard to believe though...)?
