  Thank you, Kid. And you have discovered one of the other great things about learning to cook: You can make things exactly the way you like them. You can also use better ingredients than the packagers would, which mostly means actual butter instead of hydrogenated palm kernel oil. My boyrfriend claims to know what modified food starch is, but I sure hope he is not sneaking it into our meals.
Modified Food What? by Kid. on 2000-12-13 02:45:33  |  Reply to this
  I haven't come across any M.F.S. in my time in a kitchen. Only natural-y things (and Quorn). I don't know. Does your boyfriend work with illegal-sounding substances, or does he just know?

  M.F.S. is a pretty common ingredient if you read the backs of packages. It may have a different name in the U.K., but around here it is in pretty much everything. My boyfriend is a chef, so I am inclined to believe him about this kind of stuff. But I am never sure about all the substances he works with. Fugu, anybody? What is Quorn, though?

  ...is the god of all substances; a non-gristly, beautifully tasting meat-substitute. What's more, it can be put in sandwiches, and eaten, or indeed done nigh on anything with. I love Quorn, it has saved my life.

  I don't know vegemite. If it's totally like meat, but not it, then yes. If it's not, then no.
