You know I’d never really thought about the non-stick qualities of Bacofoil before. I’d previously mostly used kitchen foil either to make a parcel to cook fish in (you know a knob of butter, a slug of white wine and a few herbs). Or else I’d used it to cover things over in the oven, maybe to stop them burning on top, if they still needed to cook in the middle say or just to keep them hot till other stuff was ready. Or just to keep things warm when we were out and about: in the winter H often gets a warm snack to eat on the way home from school (usually a hot cross bun warmed up in the microwave). I’d not really thought about using Bacofoil to make my life easier in terms of making sure food doesn’t stick to oven dishes and the like.
Bacofoil challenged us to do the Bacofoil Baco-Shake, so we picked out something that usually tends to stick: fish fingers. The non-stick side of the foil is the non-shiny side (I didn’t know that so I learnt something new). Fish fingers worked well for H too as he was going to need to help me with the filming, so a little reward was in order. I just lined the Pyrex dish with the foil, put the fish fingers and chips inside, and popped the lot into the oven to cook. A little while later we got it out and tested out how non-stick the Bacofoil was and I’m pleased to report it passed with flying colours. Now I don’t usually encourage playing with food, but we decided to have a little fun with this as you can see in the little video we made.
