OMG...super great! We adore Pan Bagnat & have a favorite recipe. But Laura's is just as tasty & a tad easier.

Can't wait for new shows, hope your new season begins soon. I saved this recipe last year but just got around to making it. Oh! My!, soo good. Not a big fan of cloves, so used 7 only. Everything else was just as presented.
Your show is a big favorite, you are so natural, easy to listen to & watch.""

Reviewed Once A Month Lamb Curry

Jan 2, 2012 in Recipes on Cooking Channel

I live lamb & spicy dishes so was eager to try this curry. It was GREAT, terrific taste! I used 2 chillies and a little more garlic. Lamb shoulder is very hard to find here, so I had to use leg.
We will have this dish again & again.
I love Bal's delivery & clear directions. Wish the background music could be eliminated or muted....

First, the cabbage tasted fabulous, a great way to give mild cabbage a lot of flavour.
Second, the recipe shows a half stick of butter: Alex NEVER used a half stick! Only the 12 T were used. Could the recipe writers PLEASE follow the chef's recipe!! Thanks in advance."

First, the review stating they only used the vinegar as shown: the show had BOTH lemon and vinegar.
The shrimp broth was great. Sauce was ok but other sauces would be better for my taste."
