What was your point in mentioning that the hummus was low calorie?

Because it was. And I always cook low calorie versions of food... so I can indulge in things like wine without feeling too guilty. I don't see any problem with that.

You do tend to jump down the throats on people who don't follow a recipe exactly.

That's more Italian than French.
Actually, I generally don't follow recipes other than the first time around to get a base feeling, then I modify them.

But there are always some base rules to follow, more or less.

I don't see how that's any different between Italian or French, and I've been cooking French twice as long as Italian.

Hell, half of the cookbooks I own are written in French (and only a few in Italian, even fewer in German).

French, actually.

I learnt to make Tarte Flambee in Alsace.

Tom
I looked it up again - it's bread dough, isn't it?

Either way, I didn't make it last night with it, and although I like cooking, I am next to hopeless when it comes to making doughs and pastry.

That's a big negative for me considering my flatmates' next challenge to me is Quiche Lorraine.

Yes, and you roll it very thin, as thin as you can work with.

"Tarte flambée...

...cheater's version, using baguette for the base rather than pastry or pizza base."

All three are wrong.

Tom
What a helpful reply.

Instead of just telling people they're wrong why don't you also tell them the 'correct' way it should be made. At least then your post would actually be helpful.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

leftovers from the other day....... oven roasted chicken shawarma.. greek style salad (lettuce, cucumber, red onion, tomato green peppers, feta), what I THINK is Lebanese style flat bread?, hummus, and Tzatziki. * I tried to make my own toum (garlic sauce) but it separated and wasn't the best....will try again in the future...*
Kind of nice not to have to "cook" this evening....
