    I love cooking in all it’s forms – savoury, sweet, indoors and outdoors – it’s what I do to relax and seeing my loved ones enjoy dishes that I’ve prepared is one of my greatest pleasures in life!

    ha ha haaaaa!! Love your edit!! Too True! Yes, actually, Serious Eats is always my go-to site for any recipes/techniques but thank you so much for suggesting it. OMG ... i got the most amazing rocky road ice-cream recipe and tiramisu recipe from there, amongst others but they are definitely the most memorable.. There was also one for crumpets but I've never got around to trying it. Do you have a stand out from the site?

    Soapstone Onions and Smashburgers

    LOL, no experience here what so ever KK, I just found the site this morning and recalled seeing somewhere on the forum that someone in Canada was having issues getting the official KJ soapstone at a reasonable cost, so hope that they have discovered this place local to them? At the moment, my husband is finding my passion for this new hobby and the multitude of purchases quite endearing .... so I'm not going to push my luck with buying extra soap stone bricks from Canada LOL

    eye fillet sounds great!! :-) If you haven't seen it, there is a channel on youtube called sousvideeverything and they have some good experiments and tips for getting great results. Would be great to see some pic's :-)

    Soapstone Onions and Smashburgers

    Thanks KK ... i found this site called Canadian Soap Stones and they don't use any oil at all because they say that it's a non stick surface. They also did this amazing thing where they relatively thinly sliced a variety of meats and seafood and then heated up a bunch of soap stone bricks (one per person) and everyone seared their food to their liking at the table. Looked quite fun.for something different :-)
