Must-know #1

Ever heard, read or saw something and thought: ‘How clever! I have to share this with someone.’ Once a month our Lifestyle Editor, Vicki Sleet, will share a useful tip or trick that’ll make everyday life easier

Vicki says:


If you’re saving a batch of egg white for using in meringues or soufflé, don’t cover the bowl in cling film.

You need whatever water naturally occurs in eggs to evaporate, otherwise your meringues or soufflés are likely to flop – or at least not rise like they should.
