    Definitely, adding too many ingredients or condiments makes one incapable to actually appreciate the taste of the individual ingredients, making their inclusion a waste.

    That tarte seems like an instant success. Did you use the super high temperatures as the articles claim are used in the original recipe?

    The aloo pyaz I make, following the recipe my grandmother taught me, uses tomato paste, curry powder (in Brazil, it’s easy to find a pre-made mix in supermarkets, usually made of turmeric, cardamom, coriander, cumin, nutmeg, clove, pepper and cinnamon) and added pepper (because most of these pre-made curry powders aren’t very strong).

    Speaking of food, did you play the Pappa’s line of games (pizzeria, burgueria and such)? I always found the depictions of food items in those games very convincing, and it was entertaining to assemble and cook the dishes (before the game gets grindy, that is).

    A hight temperature oven would be great but ours is just a regular cheap one that can barely get 250c° going after a very long time of heating.
    Got a trick however. Got a pizza stone block that compensates the lack of high heat a bit while giving the food a cross taste without ever anything sticking to it.
    The Flammkuchen turned out as it should so that worked.

    Pappa’s line of games . .. . A yes, a few. The side scowler was my favorite. Papa Louie 2: When Burgers Attack!

    One question about pizza

    Pineapples?

    Why yes. In the non glass dish. Cut into small slices from a fresh whole delicious fruit.
    The taste is marvelous on my pizza. 🙂
    Or did I get it wrong?

    Never tried. May not try.
    Currently I’m in the UK. I got a study trip for my 18th birthday, so I got the gift of being alone in a foreign country!

    But this place is super cool so I can’t complain. I’ve gone lots of places, learned lots of stuff, met lots of people. Adulthood can be fun!

    I also lucked out and won £70 (!!!!!) in Steam gift cards in an arcade. And got merchandise of my own character as well!

    You turned 18 . . . adulthood eee. Well it is a big step into freedom for some and lots of responsibility for others.
    Nice that you are having lots of fun in the UK.
    Land is big so my I ask for a more precise location?

    Also congrats on that win. Was it in a UK arcade?
    Man I loved to hang out in arcades in the day.
    There are basically none around here anymore.

    I already came back. I was in London for six weeks, saw both Amsterdam and Dublin on the weekends. Best six weeks of my life!
    I’ve been with y’all for so long now. Like 6 years? Four? It’s a lot of time.
    Yes, it was a UK arcade. Near the London Eye, actually. They had Time Crisis 5 of all things, which I didn’t even know existed and beat with five credits.
    Too sad we’re running out of arcades. They were the best.

    Welcome back.
    Fun trips can be very refreshing to the body and mind.
    Time crisis 5 ee. I looked at a vid of it and am not impressed. For a game made in 2015 it looks just like any other arcade shooter that has been around for the past 25 years save a bit better graphics and apparently very easy game play. Nothing to much to think; just keep hitting the targets fast enough.
    Arcades in general where a great place to hang around. I heard that in Japan for instance they still are.

    Haven’t seen a single arcade in ages here. We drove to a spot over in NJ last vacation and there was a one down on the boardwalk though.

    Last time I remember ever being in an arcade was Funstation USA as a teenager. I played House of the Dead with an old grandma and we got pretty far without continues. Good times.

    Cool that you mention House of the Dead because I liked it a lot too.
    Never got far. Felt dam hard. One must know in advance where to shoot and keep close track of the bullet count or you die fast.
    So I looked it up and actually found a great play through so I finally got to see the entire game. . awwww sweeet. . . . . :))

    Nicholas, was the arcade called Namco Funscape? If so, I enjoyed the hell out of that place during my time in London last summer. I remember it being quite near the London Eye, and I also recall spending most of my tokens winning a Winnie the Pooh from a claw machine as I had seen the Christopher Robin movie the previous day lol.

    You’re lucky you got to spend 6 weeks in Europe, I only had 3, but it was such a blast. Hope you had fun!

    Namco Funscape! Well I’ll be . . . . my offspring was there last year while on a London city trip.
    I wounder how expensive a day there would be for someone that just wants to play a few games for old time sakes?
