    My kitchen motto: The road to success is paved by mistakes well handled. That's why we keep the mistakes in the videos. So, if you ordered angel hair, it's okay! Just tell your server you made a terrible mistake.

      Damn. BA needs to hire Chefs who have presentation skills.. Chef Ramsay would freaking murder these guys for such awful way of presenting their food.

                Is there an alternative to wine for those that can't have alcohol due to religious reasons. Would chicken stock be appropriate?

                                          My personal, cooking with wine formula: If the recipe says one cup, buy something you've had by the glass in a restaurant that you loved and cost less than $10. If the recipe wants half a bottle of wine or more, buy a bottle of your favorite "house wine" at your favorite restaurant. But always buy in the grocery store.

                                                  Just a guess, but it cooks so quickly, and can't really stand up to much in the way of sauces. So, it gets gummy too fast. That's why I don't like it. Maybe I am projecting, though.

                                                    Came here (from the UK) expecting deep-fried mechanically formed pieces of shrimp flavoured fish parts served with Heinz tartar sauce.
                                                    Was not disappointed that I didn't see it.
