So.....have you seen Fatal Attraction.......doesn't CherryMarzipan bear an uncanny...and somewhat scary... resemblence (from a sanity point of view) with Glenn Close's character :eek:mg:

Do you think they need to know about a diving school in Tenerife?

***genuine question****

i always thought that the bit of the egg you could get salmonella from was the yolk, and meringues only use the white, so why does it need to be cooked anyway?

i rather like the idea of a blow torch.
:D

I'm pretty sure the yolk is just as susceptable to the bacteria as the white....I crapped out in biology but if a sperm can fertilise the egg (yolk) then surely a virus can contaminate it as it has to pass through to the yolk?????

And the thread is up to 500 now :eek:mg:

And the blowtorch is great.....20 hour beef :) two wing rib of beef....seal the outside with the blowtorch then intot he oven for 20 hours at 50 deg C (a la Heston Bluementhal)....to die for :)

EDIT.....

Just found this

AEB.ORG said:
Bacteria, if they are present at all, are most likely to be in the white and will be unable to grow, mostly due to lack of nutrients. As the egg ages, however, the white thins and the yolk membrane weakens. This makes it possible for bacteria to reach the nutrient-dense yolk where they can grow over time if the egg is kept at warm temperatures. But, in a clean, uncracked, fresh shell egg, internal contamination occurs only rarely
Never knew that :)

Lion Eggs? Who ever heard of lions laying eggs, call themselves cooks, just a bunch of trouble makers if you ask me!
Now, where did I leave my blowtorch?

Its about time we asked the questions that need asking.

1. which hand should the blowtorch be held in for effective torching.
2. stowage of said torch, before and after the torching event.
3. redundancy for blowtorch in case of primary failure.
4. team approach to blowtorching.

:D
