Suprised i couldnt find a decent flan tin today

(the type with the lift out base) went to the warehouse, farmers and briscoes and all they had were the smaller 20cm size ones.was hoping for one abit bigger.ran out of time to go to stevens.i thought theyd be quite common.

Only at a proper cookware store.you will get a better selection too.

yeah i just thought theyd be more common but alas not in that size.hugh's cheese & leek flan will have to wait.

You can also get the French tinware which gives you the loose base, but a nice deep tin, which is great for a good, high quiche or bacon and egg pie etc.

i got a nice solid 26cm one from Stevens, cooked a self-crusting quiche in it the other day.no leaks.

ive got a cake tin i got from paknsave about 6 years ago still going strong,,.im all for the cheap brands, every now and then you come across some that are as good as the expensive ones.if not better.while im here try this.i used feta cheese instead of the blue and added a chicken stock cube to the water in the beginning and a cupful of cooked chicken diced to the mix. yes ill admit i used packet pastry but turned out primo http://www.rivercottage.net/recipes/leek-and-dorset-blue-vin

Some of the Pam's brand stuff is really good value.
