Pre-prepared base, or everything made from scratch in 30 minutes ?
** Phil.

I had base gravy from a jar (pressure caned home made), but the 30 minutes included taking the meat out of the fridge.

But not bringing it up to room temperature, clearly !

Could be done.
Whiskey is the answer, but what was the question?

Lost me at "la" I'm afraid. My full year of French lessons, at age 13, taught me to say I was Jean Clune, even though I wasn't, count to 10 and sing, but not understand, Frere Jacques. I could never do the throat thing either and assigning gender to inanimate objects was simply bonkers. I do remember the teacher fondly though. She used to write on the chalkboard at a downhill angle from left to right. The whole class one time arranged to all lean over a little bit while her back was turned. We thought it was hilarious but she didn't share the feeling.

for me, getting "there" means I can turn out a curry that tastes good, that my audience enjoys, along with pilau rice, in just as short a time as I could turn out spaghetti with some pasta sauce.

I am not quite "there" yet, but I can see "there" not far away, and that is thanks to y'all on this forum here. Thank you, everyone.
