I know you don’t generally write about kitchen stuff in PM, but won’t you please make a concession for my two hints? The first: if you want to thicken a soup or watery sauce without changing the flavour, add a few tablespoons of instant potato flakes. Second hint: this sounds weird, but the next time you make a grilled cheese sandwich, spread a generous layer of mayonnaise on the outside of the bread before placing it under the grill (don’t forget to turn it once). The result is delicious!
