    I am a regular on multiple forums/message boards. Tried to get into yours tonight and am lost. I did get to the page that list various categories at one time. ]

    But now I can not get back to the forums. It keeps taking me back to my profile.

    Rabbit casserole sous-vide!!!

    Rabbit seems to be the black beast of molecular cooking!!
    everybody online seems to let you know that you get mushy texture if cook for to long ?
    Can’t find water bath timetable and temperature table guidance online for that wonderfull piece of meat ” le lapin”.
    Any advice from you guys on how to get it texture right ?

    I am planning to do my mother’s recipe ” le lapin , moutarde and mushroom casserole”
    Is it dangerous to cook mushrooms and cream below 70°c for long hours ?

    Bonjour. J’ai des doutes que l’emballage sous vide, la dernière nourriture? meilleure récipient avec un peu de bouillon ou sec?.

    Salutations de l’Espagne.
