I'm guessing that CharlieD doesn't know the terms 'tian' and 'courgette'.

Courgette is approximately a zucchini.

A tian is a layered little pile of stuff, like a molded dish or casserole. They used the rings to stack everything up, then removed the rings for presentation.

Hey guys, sorry if that wasn't very clear - guess we are all from different parts of the world on here and may not use the same terms for things! Anyone got any favourite recipes they want to share?

Thank you, in fact I did know about the zukini, but did not know what tian was, but even that was not my problem.


Chicken supreme is called that for a reason, otherwise it could have been simply called baked chicken or seared baked chicken. Also After such introduction to a pesto, there was no fallow up, and honestly I just really wanted to know how it was done versus a regular pesto, because there is so very little to a pesto.

Now am I wrong to ask for the detailed recipes? I thought it was cooking forum and we are trying to learn how to cook. No ofence to anybody.

uhmm, not a good assumption. just think of all the "names" that have been attached to "hot dogs" or "hamburgers" or "an omelet"

marketing names & hype mean nothing.

Well, chicken supreme is also a shortened version of a supreme of chicken which is a particular trimming of a chicken breast that still includes the wing.

Supreme has gone on to mean the trimmed segmented citrus.

So supreme does have specific cooking meanings rather than just marketing hype.
