Top chefs have warned that adding milk to scrambled eggs is ruining them. 

Whether you add milk to make it creamier or just so you have a bit more scrambled egg on your toast, several top chefs says it’s actually doing more harm.

Dan Joines, who runs several award-winning restaurants in London, says adding milks saps the flavour out of the eggs.

He said: “Never add milk to your scrambled eggs – it dilutes the flavour and makes them more likely to turn out rubbery.

Adding: “It’s always butter for me. Make sure your butter is golden, but not brown, before you put your eggs in. Keep stirring on a medium to low heat.

“Keep them moving and folding with a spatula until slightly runny, but bound together.”

Luke Selby who works at Hide in London also agrees, saying: “Putting milk in your scrambled eggs is a cardinal sin!

“It just makes them too wet, like school dinners.”

Australian-French chef Manu Feildel, who hosts My Kitchen Rules, recommends putting your pan on a medium heat and melting butter until it bubbles before adding your eggs.

He adds that it’s important to keep your pan at a steady temperature and to ‘not let the pan get too hot’. 

He explains: “If the pan is too hot the eggs will cook too quickly, burn, and rather than be lovely and light, have a rubbery texture.”

Manu adds that you should take them off the stove quicker than you’d expect. He added: “Remove them from the heat when still a little wet in places.

“The residual heat from the pan and the eggs will finish cooking them through.”

So – butter, low and slow, and take them off the heat before they finish cooking and you’ll have scrammy eggs that even Gordon Ramsey would be proud of!

Everyone is fuming at Gordon Ramsey’s £18 take away fish and chips

He’s done it again…

Published

Gordon Ramsey has been tweeted a lot through the lockdown but not everyone has been impressed with his pretty expensive grub.

We already know about his £19 Full English (where you only get ONE sausage) and a £56 Sunday Roast (I hope it’s got gold on it) but now we’re talking about his fish and chips.

The classic Friday night dinner staple comes in at a whopping £18.50 and you’ll get a grand total of seven chips.

Ramsey posted the video on his Twitter with the caption: “You can’t beat a London House classic…. and this one’s to go!!”

He attached a video which sees him battering a fillet of fish before whacking it in the fryer along with some chips.

It’s all seasoned with salt and put in a takeaway carton. You also get mushy peas, tartare sauce and a muslin cloth wrapped half lemon to squeeze on the top tucked in the side of the box.

Sounds okay so far, right?

Well, not everyone is impressed by the fancy take away fish and chips where you only get even chips.

A follower wrote: “£18.50?? I mean if it came with 8 or 9 chips I’d think about [it] but 7 is taking the p***.”

Another added: “Need a few more chips in there. How much you charging for that? That would get sent straight back.”

A third said: “Fish batter doesn’t even look good, stingy af with the chips and mushy peas and all – bet it costs 10x that of the local chippy and isn’t even half as nice.”

A fourth followed added: “Where’s the rest of the chips? I’ve seen more chips in a seagull’s mouth!!!”

Seven Brothers Brewery have created a new beer inspired by Greater Manchester Mayor, Andy Burnham.

Andy Burnham has been nicknamed the ‘King of the North’ across social media for his efforts towards government support for a tier 3 lockdown in Greater Manchester.

But one Manchester-based company has gone a step further, dedicating a new batch of beer to him.

‘King of the North’ is a North England IPA that has been created by Seven Brothers.

The beer is a collaboration with Tip-Jar and their ‘hospitality mates’ across the city of Manchester to help raise funds for individuals who are most vulnerable at the minute. 

They shared the news on social media writing: “Tiers are flooding, the tips have dried up… enter KING OF THE NORTH!”

“Inspired by the Mayor of Greater Manchester and his fight for funding across the North, we’ve teamed up with Tip-Jar and our hospitality mates from across the City of Manchester to raise funds for hospitality workers in need during this difficult time.”

“There are two ways you can help. You can visit the link in our bio and leave a tip at the Tip-Jar link for a struggling hospitality worker. At this not-for-profit venture, all your kind tips are supporting carefully selected individuals.”

“You can also grab a can of our KING OF THE NORTH beer, a portion of all profits will also benefit this venture. This New England IPA is getting a North England twist and it really packs a punch.”

You can pre-order the beer now and they will be dispatched from November 18th. 

Seven Brothers are also creating free packed lunches with their sister company Four Sisters as part of the End Child Poverty campaign.
