    OK I got one for you. How do you rest meat (like a whole fillet) without it going cold?

    Wrap it in foil, keep it on a wire rack so there's a little surface touching the meat (and therefore drawing out moisture) an eye fillet should need only about 20 minutes to rest.
    Serving on warm plates is also a must. If your kitchen is particularly cold a 50-60 degree oven is safe for resting purposes.

    The other ting I do is wrap tea towel round the foil, keeps a bit more heat in, just like a blanket. Not required in commercial kitchens as normally bloody hot!

    Don't put towel round and stick it in the oven

    Cheers

    Angus, can you explain what & when different oils should be used for? ie; olive, rapeseed, canola, etc
    I just use olive for everything, also what's the story on mixing butter & oil?
    Shut up, get out & start pushing!

    Olive oil has a low smoke point so it's best used when cooking at lower temperatures. It has a strong flavour so it's not ideal for searing, regular olive oil should be used for cooking whilst extra virgin should be used for salads and dressings because it has more plant matter in it (giving it a stronger flavour) which makes it burn and turn bitter very easy.
    Rapeseed/canola/ricebran/avacado/soya bean oil are what are known as 'neutral oils' and have little to no flavour but extremely high smoke points making them ideal for searing and frying. Generally rice bran and sunflower oil have the highest smoke points of the lot.
    Combining butter and oil will stablize it and prevent it from burning as quickly when used for frying.

    Whats the tucky with coconut oil, we use it almost exclusively for when cooking meat alone. Seems pretty neutral taste wise

    I use it for deserts when i need to make a chocolate coating for eclairs etc. But i don't generally recommend it for cooking with as it's not a very stable product, bloody good for you though i hear. We used to put a teaspoon of it in our coffee at the beginning of a shift to even out the caffeine release and keep us going longer.

    What do you mean by stable? Does it not have a consistent smoke temp if thats how you measure it?
