    Alex , you remind me, in a way, of Heston Blumenthal - your style of presenting food and ingredients has a degree of “science” to it ... Heston seems more arrogant and smug about it, whereas you make it seem more approachable and friendly. You deserve every success.
    Bravo, Alex.

    Onion hack: Light a candle next to the chopping block. The flame will burn off (most of) the vapors from the onion before they reach your eyes

    Thank you for this video. I made this tonight but didn't have spicy sausages so I used smoked lardons instead. Added lots of chilli powder and paprika. It came out beautifully. Also thank you for the onion tip - I will try it later this week as I suffer tremendously when I chop onions.

    I have a variation of Shakshuka I do with a South African twist. Use Boerewors (South African Farm Sousage) instead. Though my base recipe uses a lot of cumin in it as well.

    What I like of your videos is that you have a tiny taste of vlogging too, you don't just stop recording and go to a grocery store and get some basic ingredients. You go to a special place to give them a shoutout, explain the situation, take us on that ride, and make it part of the video. that's value right there. Great to watch, loving it. merci!

    That's not what we call shakshuka in Turkey (written as "şakşuka" in Turkish) at all. In Turkey it's made with eggplant instead of meat (of any type). So I wonder if Arabs do it like this, and if so why the hell do we call a different dish with the same name?

  • Berna Donmezer O'Donovan

    Here comes a "Shaksuka" song, you'll defiantly remember how to pronounce after this. By the way, love your geekiness about food, enjoying your videos lot, many thanks...

    That is not the Shakshuka I know. In Israel they serve about the same veggies but no sausage and a lot of egg. The art is to mix the white while keeping the yolk intact. Cook until the yolk is creamy inside.

    Hi Alex, you should do an episode about the things that don’t work in cooking and why, for instance: raw tomatoes emphasizing metallic taste in and canned tuna, or the off smell of egg wash on pastry, or unpleasant taste of water in pastry, or the taste of baking powder or yeast, etc..
