Vit's Ma's cooking tips

If one has a semi vegetarian daughter - or sister - and feels it would be kinder to use vege gelatine to set a smoked haddock mousse -don't do it - it doesn't work. SOLUTION: LIE! (Said vege says she prefers the mousse unset anyway)

My newest cooking aid is an electric wok. OK, Chinese cooking purists might be appalled but with no mains gas in this beautiful (cool) spot out in the sticks and a simply divine Aga who's only fault is it won't heat a conventional wok, who cares - it works - we had steamed kippers for breakfast this morning. Is this fusion food - Scottish/Chinese?
