Burnt meringue, vanilla ice cream and olive oil recipe

Burnt meringue, vanilla ice cream and olive oil recipe

[ad_1] This is a very fun dessert that’s perfect if you want to show off. A satiny, voluminous Swiss meringue is served in elegant swoops, then briefly burned with a glowing ember, to quickly toast the surface. I love to serve this with vanilla ice cream and very good olive oil, just to blow people’s minds a little further. Use the best extra-virgin oil you can find. This isn’t the time to use a regular olive oil. Timings Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time: 15 minutes Serves  4 Ingredients 4 egg whites 200g icing sugar 1 tbsp cornflour To serve vanilla ice cream very good olive oil flaky sea salt Method Prepare a pan of barely simmering water. Place the egg whites into a large heatproof bowl and whisk them briefly with an electric whisk, just to combine them. Place the bowl on top of the pan of water, ensuring the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the bowl. Add the icing sugar and beat with the electric whisk until you have a nice thick …

“I got burnt out”: Giada De Laurentiis said her decision to leave Food Network was not an easy one

[ad_1] Giada De Laurentiis is opening up about why she left the Food Network after serving as a popular television host for more than two decades. In a new interview on Rebecca Minkoff’s podcast “Superwomen,” De Laurentiis revealed what encouraged her to exit the network and focus on her lifestyle brand, Giadzy. “I would switch gears without knowing it every seven years. So I did ‘Everyday Italian’ for seven years. Then I got pregnant, and I was like ‘OK I can’t do that show anymore. I got to do a reincarnation of the show because I’m now pregnant. I’m a different person,’” De Laurentiis said. She continued, saying she “was lucky enough to be at a period of time” at Food Network where she had control over her own projects. “The landscape hadn’t really been fully discovered yet, and so I think they were just more open to the talent,” she said of the network. De Laurentiis ultimately decided to part ways with the Food Network after spending years working on several projects. The decision, …

Prince Harry has ‘burnt bridges’ with US residency bombshell – but still ‘hope’ | Royal | News

Prince Harry has ‘burnt bridges’ with US residency bombshell – but still ‘hope’ | Royal | News

[ad_1] Prince Harry has “burnt his bridges” after confirming that he became a US resident, claims a royal photographer. The father-of-two and husband of Meghan Markle has changed his primary residence to his Southern California mansion in the United States. It was revealed that a travel company, Travalyst Ltd, which is at least 75% owned by Harry, had filed paperwork this week informing British authorities that he is now a “new country/state usually resident” in the US. Sun photographer Arthur Edwards called Harry’s decicion “inevitable” and a “sad occasion,” especially when the Duke of Sussex has been through a year-longs feud with his royal sibling Prince William. READ MORE: Royal Family ‘did right thing’ not attending Lilibet’s US christening “They’ve left a wake of nasty stories about the Royal Family, if he only realised he was part of it for many years,” Edwards said. “Him and William were so close, they did everything together, they supported each other through everything. That rift now doesn’t seem possible to be healed and that’s very sad. It was …

A trailer full of Bible purposefully burnt in front of Greg Locke’s church in Tennessee

A trailer full of Bible purposefully burnt in front of Greg Locke’s church in Tennessee

[ad_1] Trailer of burnt Bibles in front of Global Vision Church in Mount Juliet, TennesseeCredit: Greg Locke An estimated 200 Bibles were destroyed after an individual purposefully set fire to them in front of a church on Easter Sunday, Fox News reports. The Bibles were in a trailer found in an intersection in front of Global Vision Church in Mount Juliet, Tennessee. The church is pastored by Greg Locke. The whole incident was caught on the Church’s security cameras. But what was particularly strange is that the Bibles had been brought to the church in the trailer by the man, who then parked it and set it on fire. A woman who had driven through the night to attend the service arrived shortly after the fire had been set and immediately reported it. It is uncertain what the motive was for the fire, but undoubtedly it was intended to intimidate Locke and those who attended his church. It is also possible, that the Bible burning is connected to two recent events that Locke has been …

‘I know someone who played noughts and crosses on one’: meet the top surgeon who burnt his initials on a patient’s liver | Doctors

‘I know someone who played noughts and crosses on one’: meet the top surgeon who burnt his initials on a patient’s liver | Doctors

[ad_1] On the morning of 21 August 2013, a patient with acute liver failure was on the urgent transplant list at Queen Elizabeth hospital, Birmingham (QEHB). If a donor couldn’t be found within 72 hours, she would die. But she got lucky. By 7pm the woman – later known in court as Patient A – was anaesthetised and unconscious on the operating table, with a healthy, deep-red donor liver glistening on ice for her nearby. QEHB had one of the UK’s leading liver units, and Simon Bramhall, the hepato-pancreato-biliary (HPB) surgeon on call that evening, was one of only about two dozen in the country at the time who specialised in liver transplants. At 49 years old, Bramhall had already performed the operation nearly 400 times. On any given day, there would be at least 10 trainees from around the world working with him, learning from his experience. In a centre of excellence, he was one of the best. Patient A’s surgery was a success. But within a few days it became clear that her …

Police release image of Clapham chemical attack suspect with burnt face

[ad_1] A man suspected of throwing corrosive chemicals at a mother and toddler, has been pictured with severe injuries on his face and holding a bottle of water.  Abdul Shokoor Ezedi, 35, from Newcastle, is suspected of using an alkaline substance to injure a 31-year-old woman and her three-year-old daughter.  Scotland Yard has released a new image of the Ezedi with “significant injuries” to the right side of his face. Supt Gabriel Cameron, at a press conference, said Ezedi was last seen in the Caledonian Road area of North London on Wednesday night and warned the public not to approach him. Mr Cameron said he had “no idea” what Ezedi’s motives are and that he is “wholeheartedly confident” he will be caught. He said: “At this stage I believe he may have been known to police, but he’s not a local resident from London as far as I’m aware. He’s come down from Newcastle.” Mr Cameron added: The image shows Ezedi with what appears to be significant injuries to the right side of his face. …

Could The Viral ‘Burnt Toast Theory’ Explain Why Bad Things Happen To You?

Could The Viral ‘Burnt Toast Theory’ Explain Why Bad Things Happen To You?

[ad_1] If you have ever missed that train or that plane, it might be an inconvenient headache. Or it could actually be the setback you needed in your day, according to the “burnt toast theory.” Burnt toast theory has become a popular catchphrase to describe the ways that minor inconveniences can actually work in your favour in the long run. As TikToker @Offthe__grid, who popularised the term, explains, “Burnt toast theory is the idea that if you burn your toast before work and it adds 5 to 10 minutes to your trip, it’s actually saving you from something catastrophic. “Maybe saving you from a car accident, maybe saving me from someone who you don’t want to run into. But this is the idea that inconveniences in our lives, or when something releases us in the universe, it’s either saving us from something more detrimental or pushing us in the direction that we need to go in,” the TikToker said in her video. People online applied the theory most recently to the Boeing 737 Max 9 …

XL bully found dead with burnt legs and fractured skull in south London

XL bully found dead with burnt legs and fractured skull in south London

[ad_1] An XL bully has been found dead with burn marks on its legs and a fractured skull in south London, the RSPCA has said. The animal welfare charity is appealing for information after the dog was found in an alleyway in Waltham Road, Carshalton, with its burnt legs bound together. An RSPCA spokesperson said one of the dog’s ears had also been cut off. The discovery, which the charity called “shocking,” came on 30 December – a day before the start of a ban on the breed. Prime Minister Rishi Sunak announced the restrictions earlier this year after branding the breed a “danger to communities” following a string of attacks. People have until 31 January to apply for an exemption certificate to keep their dog – and must have it neutered, microchipped and insured.

Meera Sodha’s vegan recipe for burnt lime and black pepper tofu | Vegan food and drink

[ad_1] The great thing about this column is that it gives me the ability not only to write for you, but also to prod myself on a regular basis and ask: what do I want to eat? When I write for you, I consider what might be in season, whether you might fancy a soup or stew, and when the weather might change. But this recipe, well, this one is personal. This is what I will put on my table. It’s big and brave in flavour, but cosy to eat. Equal parts warming and comforting to fresh and crunchy. Crucially, it’s quick, too, which, in keeping with the season, is very merry-making. Burnt lime and black pepper tofu You’ll need a 28cm nonstick frying pan to make this. Serve with jasmine rice (cook the rice first, because it will stay warm for an hour after cooking). Mushroom stir-fry sauce is available in most large supermarkets.
