When I watched the introduction I wasn't convinced I was going to enjoy his presentational style, but having now watched all the videos in the series I find his approach not bad at all.  No reason to challenge any of the recipes -- they all seem pretty authentic to me.

+1, although browning MSG was a new one on me, but will try it out to see what difference it makes.

Same here, that technique may make all the difference in terms of t/a taste for certain dishes on domestic heat, rather than dispersing it over a big pile of ingredients, where it may end up only being heated

 Has anyone tried to apply this browning MSG technique to a BIR dish, would be interesting  to know the outcome?

Not yet ...  Bit I have (finally) unpacked most of the kitchen stuff, so I may try it before too long ...

Have you, or any members, a particular dish/dishes in mind which you feel may benefit from this technique

I had thought,a chicken chow mien -- it is one of the few dishes where my wife's version is markedly superior to my own !  Also, the effect would be far less marked in (say) chicken with chilli and black bean sauce, because it is the sauce that provides most of the flavour there, whereas with chicken chow mien the flavour must come from the chicken itself.

Sorry folks maybe didn't explain myself clearly. I was referring to BIR dishes only. could it infuse a smokey like flavour at the start of the cooking process.

Oh, then no.  I don't think MSG plays any significant role in BIR cuisine.

Might be worth considering. Remember, a closed mind is a would-be chefs worst enemy

"I don't think ..." is not indicative of a closed mind; more a mind that could be swayed if sufficient evidence were adduced :)

I've tried this technique in noodle dishes and found it impossible to tell the difference, maybe down to the small number of attempts. The fact that msg is added directly  to quite a few liquid or sauce dishes without browning, suggests it might be an genuine opinion or just hot air. I also don't think it has any place in bir, in terms of recreating what the restaurants and t/a's serve and sell us
