Really? I beg to differ...

Maybe we can start with disagreeing on the fact that Dubai is not a country.

Yep! I can't find professionalism in Dubai. Any ideas where I can find it in Dubai?

I can understand ignoring a badly written or a stupid email. But it is amazing how everyone ignores a very well written email to simply ask for more information about something specific.

Things I can't find in Dubai:

Capri-Sun (like the one in the UK and not the mess in Park and Shop)
Orange Lucozade (like the one in the UK and not the mess in Park and Shop)
Right Guard Deodorant
V05 Hair Gel
Pitta Bread

and so on

Maybe, but no-one's been able to suggest a place to find my Bearnaise sauce in Dubai and no suggestions for anywhere else in the country.

I suppose with enough money I could fly someone to Switzerland (the country where I first used the sauce packets) and get them to pick some up from a supermarket....

I guess I'm just going to have to either cheat (adding tarragon to Hollandaise) or find a simpler recipe that the Larousse Gastronomique's one. Recipe suggestions welcome ;-) But please keep them simple enough for a relatively competent cook (i.e. no starting with "make some stock").

The above jocularity aside, this thread (and the forum in general) are great!

apart from the pitta bread, not being able to find these things is a good thing!

I see the green pack on the far left.. from what I recall that's how their basic black tea is packaged. Haven't been able to go yet, but will definitely do that soon and report back. Thanks a lot!
