Dear Anneke:

Don't forget that Cape Chef and I are of the same generation. Just two more children of the "creme fraiche" revolution!

cool jello out of the fridge,as it jiggles and wiggles and you enjoy the slurp it makes as you take it in is a very sensual thing.
It's not the flavor it's the texture.

Profiles please!

Bond

What about profiling a Jello user and a creme fraiche user?

I could do this but I am not as good as you are!!

Everybody knows that!

PS Do you believe that Athenaeus doesn't know what jello is?

well, i must say that i got quite the response!!!! The reason I was asking in the first place is because my son is having his 6th year birthday, and I wanted to make something fun and surprising and I thought that this would be very interesting and....WHO THE **** WOULD WANT TO FRY JELL-O ANYWAY??????
It came up in conversation at work one day and I thought I would try it. I mean how bad can it be??? right?? sugar coated wiggly sugar; great for kids. I can't do any worse than purple and green ketchup!!!!!

oh and by the way the dye from the ketchup doesnt come out of clothes or off hands very well!!!! Just a mental note to parents and of course grown kids:))

It made you all think about it for a moment at least. Try something new with food it cant be that bad(unless you burnt it...ha ha ha) so the next time you want something creative just look down the aisles of your supermarket and imagine something way off the wall!!! might be a new trend...

well gotta go



and cape chef you got my recipe for the seafood cheesecake????
i would really appreciate it thanks

Don't forget the cherries!

Dear James:

You are so right!

Age, unfortunately, never comes alnone. It brings along culinary wisdom too. Now I go for the cherries.

Cherries?

Would it be cherries in Armagnac, cherries with crème fraîche or cherry flavoured Jell-O, Papa? :confused:

And Bond, you naughty boy!!! ;)

As we say in Greece, in that case, even walls would blush...

Here in the haute-cuisine atmosphere of the West of Scotland we have the 'jeelie piece' . The same people that brought the deep fried mars bar into the world also make jello sandwiches. There is a restaurant here that deep fries them and they are surprisingly light and tasty - but it's not the same type of 'jeelie piece' that most of the rest of the population eats.

EMTCHEF,
i think that they have an article from anewspaper about the 'jeelie pieces' outside their restuarant. I try and go past this week and get the gist of what it is they do and let you know, if you want

Athenaeus,
I think that if you eat 'jeelie pieces' your main course has probably been something like 'chips with curry sauce' washed down with copious amounts of beer. . .who knows if you would reach the whisky!

Let's see. Jell-o sandwiches (are these deep-fried too?) Fried candy bars. Chips with curry sauce. What, no haggis?

They say the Scots are a hardy bunch, and I for one believe it.

Speaking of Jell-O...

Here's a delightful treat someone once made for an office Christmas party:

A gelatin mold should be made with Knox Unflavored Gelatin and red food coloring. One would think that a flavorless food would not be at all difficult to swallow, but believe me, from the looks of people who inserted cold masses of gelatinous glop into a mouth that was expecting sweets, the experience is unexplainably horrifying! Some claimed to be nauseated by the feel of it; others politely swallowed...

:D

to 007,
I suppose I should get off the 'chips and curry sauce as great cuisine' mode. I mean we do have venison, Finan haddies, kippers and beautiful raspberries, but if i go on about that, I run the risk of sounding like an advert for the Scottish Tourist board!

Hey Atheneaus...no one ever got you a picture, did they? Well, here I am to the rescue.



I don't know why everyone is making fun of Jell-O. It is a very versatile food that you can stick just about anything in and it is still generally edible. I like Jell-O. Every once in a while you just need to make one of those tilted glasses multi-layered Jell-O things. It looks pretty. It tastes - well like fruit flavored plastic, but that's okay with me.

By the way, seems to me our friend James is right on the money...

Thank you Nancy!!

This photo of mine it's unique in it's kind I guess!
Oh!! You have seen photos of mine Nancy ;)
This week are everywhere in the States!

As for Jello , to make a long discussion short

I prepare it also and very often especially after I got married!
I find jello very inspiring in cooking and in marriage also.
I make it with fresh fruits because in Greece with such a heat and all these fresh fruits during the summer time , is very nice to have jello after food!
I also make other deserts using jello, deserts that combine creme fraiche and jello.

But eating fried Jello ... oh no my dear!

In that case I am sure that I will manage to find my way to whiskey regardless the quantity of beer I must have in order to shallow it!!

deep fryed candy bars

On A Cooks Tour while in Scotland, they went to a restaurant where they fry candy bars like a mars bar in a light batter on a regular basis.
