I learned from my mother, who used a frying pan, using a spatula to move the mixture back and forth. This recipe involves far more agitation, which requires the saucepan. I also haven't used olive oil before, and that really comes through in the texture and taste.
I've found a wooden spoon is better for manipulation of the egg mixture. I've always used a saucepan too, though the olive oil is a new one on me, I've always used best butter.
I consider myself a bit of a maestro when it comes to scrambled eggs too, can't let 'em settle in the pan for more than 10-20 seconds if you don't want shitty brown burnt bits, wooden spoon is ideal for this, as far as adding anything, all they need is a drop of milk, knob of butter and a sprinkle of ground black pepper, I also drain before serving, nothing worse than that eggy water stuff making your toast soggy.. :(
A true maestro wouldn't need to drain, he would have found the perfect consistency within the allotted cooking time.

You have a lot to learn, Grasshopper.
With this, there was no brown and nothing to drain. I don't have any but the most rudimentary cooking skills, and the results were fluffy, moist, and delicious.

I always drain just in case, can't always trust my eyes first thing in the morning :mrgreen:

Another top-tip is to use Soda Water with batter mix for pancakes, light and fluffy perfection...

A complete substitution or just partial? I'm intrigued by this.

Straight swap, Soda instead of still water, I was dubious before I tried it but there's no doubt it works :mrgreen:

Does the application of soda water provide a seal?
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

Talking of Top-Tips, the new Viz book, "30 years of Top-tips" is just out. They printed a selection in the Sun last week, I was in stitches, I may look for a link to it

That requires salt water toffee.

Thanks, PH. The missuz loves pancakes and is hooked on soda water (can't stand the stuff myself), so this'll be a neat experiment.

Fuck knows, :huh: Can anybody with a chemistry O'level hazard a guess? Bubbles must effect the consistency in some way....

I haven't tried it with Yorkshire puddings yet, that could be truly spectacular..

I just ate one of the newest burgers from Kuma's Corner - the Brujeria.

Cream Cheese and Chorizo Stuffed Jalapeno Popper, Cheddar Cheese and Charred Tomato Salsa
It was so rare a decent vet might have been able to save it. While I ate it, they were cranking loud, aggressive metal (as they always do). I literally wanted to leave that place and beat up some chump for no good reason. AAAAGGGGGGGGRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOO!

I think I'm slipping into a meat coma. Seriously, this place is wicked awesome. Best fucking burger place ever.

EDIT: ALSO had the VERY BEST CALAMARI I've ever had, AND one of the top five Macaroni & Cheese's I've ever had there.

I think Murph came up with a great description of how rare something was a while back. This belongs with that. The great manly pastime: figuring out increasingly horrible ways to describe how rare something is.

My contribution: a steak so rare the wife and kids are still expecting it to come home.

If only burgers and steaks were made from horses I could say it's so rare Hoy might rape it.

Oh hell, I'll say it anyway...

Top notch steaks are so good I often do try to rape them. It's a last resort to try to make more of it.
