Was just making some ravioli (salmon and cream cheese filling) and with the leftover dough some tagliatelle. Took about 20 minutes to make (plus another 20 to clear up. Pasta dough was 200gms of 00 flour and 2 eggs. Filling was some salmon trimmings gently steamed and mixed with some cream cheese. Total cost is about 70p (probably about €0.70 at the moment).

Culinary art at its best.
That’s gorgeous, Glen! (a.k.a. chef de cuisine and head cook) :)
Thank you. :)

We try and make a lot of meals from scratch though there are some things like veggie pies that would take too long and not be as economical to do. Like brewing, it isn't always cheaper to cook from scratch ingredients but it is satisfying and tasty plus you can have it exactly like you want it. But often, like Sascha's sush, you can be proud of what you make and throughly enjoy it. One pot stews are very cheap to make and can use cheap vegetables. Though cheap they are satisfying and tasty.

When I was at school it was only girls that did "domestic science" (cooking) while us boys did woodwork and metalwork. Basic cooking skills should be in the school curriculum for all children if it isn't already.

Obviously been a little while since I was at school but that a general life skills course like that seems to make sense. Some of my friends have science degrees and are very intelligent yet when it comes to some basic skills they are so thick it is unbelievable. Some even managed to get married and have kids which does baffle me and a lot of other folk. Put a physics problem in front of them and they are fine but put them in a social situation and :eek:

Here is the cooked ravioli. The tagliatelle was a little bit too thick so should have put it through the machine on the next thickness. Tasted great though.
