What are some good websites for recipes?
>inb4 allrecipes or some other mumsnet-tier place
maybe be a bit more specific. what kind of recipes are you looking for?
i have to admit that i like the websites that get a lot of traffic and have a comment and rating function on the recipes. there are always good tipps and you can try to avoid recipes that dont really do it.
The beeb and graun usually have reliable recipes:
Especially this column: theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/series/how-to-cook-the-perfect
Also for asian stuff:
here's my tip.
learn techniques. cutting, boiling, braising, baking, stewing, pickling etc. etc. etc.
then just look up a recipe to use as a reference and apply your basic knowledge to it. that way, you aren't bound to what the recipe says to do. You just need to understand the process.
>I overcooked it and made substitutions like using plain flour when the recipe said to use self raising and it turned out horribly this is a terrible recipe. Went nicely with ketchup though.
what i do is use an image search engine and then follow the links to the food pictures which look the tastiest. then i give all the recipes i've collected the once-over and pick the ones which sound the best.
Imo the best cooking magazine + website is Saveur. They lean toward ethnic cuisine, which is awesome, and their recipes always go beyond the basics, unlike most cooking websites. They aren't afraid of fat either.
I like their takes on the classics. Try their garlic bread (holy shit) or tomato soup.
Just input ingredients and it'll give you suggested recipes based on them.
I don't exactly follow the recipes in there, but they give me good ideas on what to do with the stuff I want to use.
