Top Comments melissa_cookingdiva March 19, 2006 at 12:33 pm Hola Elise! I just came back from Ecuador and purchased some rennets there. They are called “pastillas de cuajo” there. I’ll be preparing some homemade cheese soon! Hugs, M Stacey S March 20, 2006 at 7:14 pm I receive RSS feeds from Heidi’s 101 cookbooks and was amazed when she posted the liquid nitrogen ice cream! I have vowed to one day try it…It is like the perfect union of dessert and a science project! Katie March 22, 2006 at 8:15 am My middle school science teacher used let the class make liquid nitrogen ice cream once a semester, but it never came out like ice cream you buy in the store. It was always a fun treat, though! I still perfer freezing marshmallows in liquid nitrogen and letting them melt in your mouth. It was a strange sight to see children emitting an icy smoke from their mouths (a fun side effect of having a frozen marshmallow in your mouth)! Ah, I miss middle school.. Zoe March 22, 2006 at 7:38 pm Thanks for posting these Learning to Cook Roundups, Elise. Learning techniques is way more valuable to me than learning recipes at this point. I’ve always just made stuff up as I go along (parents didn’t cook much and never taught me). A few things I’d like to learn include how to make breadcrumbs (dried and fresh) since I need to eat whole wheat breadcrumbs, how to season a wok, how to peel and mince garlic, and how to make chicken that comes out tender and moist like in a restaurant!
