Not talking boil and egg here, but really simply ways of turning out top notch dishes.

Any thoughts as to format - maybe a menu with starters, mains and desserts or just a list of simple, yet classy main courses?

I think good simple main meals (forget the classy) would be an excellent idea.

I really must do one on curries, they can be so simple if you plan it right.

I find the word 'gourmet' very offputting. What does it really mean ?

Makes me think a dish is going to be unduly complicated and involve cream or sauce.

Memories of Graham Kerr, perhaps (The Galloping...., for all you young 'uns)

It's a working title, I want to convey the impression that it's really tasty, quality food that can be prepared simply. people have the impression that if you can only cook a simple meal you can't turn out something really good.

I think this is a great idea, Jonnyboy.

If addressing newbie 'top nosh' cooks, perhaps just mains. One course is enough to start with.
That way we don't have to feel inadequate for wheeling out fruit crumble for pudding yet again

But then, a second article giving a full dinner menu. So once more confident of our skills, we can show off our new talents from starter to cheese.

This one has huge potential, could be a series of articles by cooing method, ingredients or style, apart from the courses.

Ok, do you maybe want a series of articles based on cooking chicken then beef, pork, etc. first?

That counts as top nosh in this house!

Nice idea though, JB.

I think so.
How about starting from a single ingredient, say chicken breasts, and then working through a few different approaches of cooking them.

I think we could use Bingo's as a basis for the "cooking with meat" article, I think we could eaisly split it like this:

meat
poultry
game
fish
shellfish
veggie
soups
indian/curries

What do you think?

Not sure, might doing it by technique be better?
Roasting
Frying
Braising/Stewing
etc.
