Anyone else flambé? I've recently started dabbling and I'm finding it a pretty exciting way to add a bit of flair and extra flavour.

Most recent dish was pad thai with a bit of flambé thrown in, used a 54% cooking wine to get that shit flamin. Didn't take a pic but it was pretty damn tasty.

depends what you are going for, but for restaurants is mostly just presentation.

If you're cooking with booze it can get rid of the excess alcohol faster than evaporation, but it's mostly just theater.

For the purposes of pad thai it did a really good job of deglazing the egg after scrambling.


I used this recipe though I ommited the oyster sauce as I will only use Megachef brand oyster sauce and had run out but used 2 tbsp tamarind, 3 tbsp fish sauce and a dash of low alcohol sake to make up for it. Flambé after scrambling the egg and loosening the pan, everything else more or less as the recipe states except I added a hot pepper. I highly recomend this recipe, closest I have made to good restaurant quality pad thai though my cooking skills have also come a long way since I last made pad thai a few years ago.

I don't mean to sound judgmental, but substituting oyster sauce with fish sauce is madness. That Megachef sauce looks pretty impressive.

Oyster sauce isn’t traditionally used in it so I don’t feel too bad, it does sound like a tasty addition though. Ain’t nobody got time for the oyster swill sauce they sell at my local supermarket haha.

>Ain’t nobody got time for the oyster swill sauce they sell at my local supermarket haha. I agree. Most oyster sauce is barely oyster. It should be all oyster.

I forgot to mention but I do highly recommend the Megachef oyster sauce if you can get your hands on it, hands down best I've ever used and I've used plenty of different brands. I'm real picky with my stir fry sauces. Three Crabs fish sauce is my go to though I definitely haven't tried as many brands of fish sauce as I have oyster.
