An almost Chinese roast duck. Broke the duck down into quarters, more in the French style than the Chinese method of "whack it into bits with a cleaver", then steamed it for 20 minutes in the instant pot, using teriyaki sauce, loads of ginger and a few chopped up clementines for the liqui...

I don't think the point is just to shock you with the amount of sugar, but with the fact that you're drinking that much sugar ON TOP OF whatever sugar you're eating for sweets and treats. That you're supposed to drink for quenching your thirst, not consume the equivalent of a giant candy at the same...

I think the preservation of flavors due to sealing seems more old wives tales than scientific. Maybe there's a mechanism where there's a limit to how much aromatics can be generated, but I'm skeptical. When you say "sealing", do you mean browning the meat beforehand? Because that's not wh...

Re: The Joys of Good Cookware

Additional benefit of a pressure cooker: you need less salt and seasoning, and it preserves delicate flavours much better. My lamb shank braised in red wine is pretty good in the slow cooker or oven, but it doesn't come near the one I do in the pressure cooker; same for my minestrone-esque type soup...
