    At a complete guess (unfamiliar with UK laws except as they relate to Law & Order UK), I would imagine that as long as the name is legally changed, it is the exact same amount of "enforceable" regardless of whether it is in the public record or not.

    I'm considering the value in using Velveeta or a similar processed cheese product as a "base/starter" cheese for soups and sauces--it's designed to melt evenly and smoothly so I'm wondering if melting that first and then adding the other desired cheeses to flavor it would work out.

    I've looked at a couple of cheese soup recipes and I think that finely diced white onion caramelized in butter added to a mixture of milk and chicken broth seasoned with salt, white and black pepper, and a hint of garlic powder brought to a boil with cubed cheese product and shredded sharp cheddar melted into it in that order then finished with diced and roasted potatoes would be a good test but I'm not sure.

    Try and see! Also, do you have a mezzaluna? The second I read "finely diced onion" my first thought was mezzaluna. I may have an inordinate amount of love for mezzalunas, admittedly.

    No.

    Maybe if I ever find myself able to move into my own house or apartment I'll pick up one for my own kitchen but...

    Honestly, I've never really had trouble dicing things with a regular knife--my group had the smoothest strawberry jam when my food chemistry course did that due to my skill with the blade.

    ...I've gotta make that jam again. That was some good ass jam.

    ...Huh. Looked that up, having not heard the phrase before. I've got something that's like that but with unsharpened blades, they called it a pastry blender. Hadn't thought of sharpening one for cutting things other than butter. Seems useful. Would be a pain to keep sharp, though.

    Basically if not enrolled organisations can refuse to accept it as evidence of your new name. English law is weird and the way it treats names is even weirder. Still, it is good that the actual legal change is easy and free even if definitive proof isn't.

    Mezzalunas, at least for me, are less about having trouble without one than simply being way faster dicing/mincing.

    Time isn't an issue for me, honestly, when possible while I prefer to take my time when prepping ingredients.

    Textures a big issue for me, so... Like, a lot of the recipes I've experimented with or want to try involve taking a stick blender to the sauce to make sure there the consistency is smooth.

    So when it comes to things like cutting and mixing, I'll take my time to do it right when feasible.

    I could cut each individual piece by itself, but en masse still does it right but faster. Mezzaluna still does it right, just faster (and easier/less effort, and more efficiently). I have nothing against anyone who doesn't want to use em, especially if they don't have em, but it's not an issue of not doing it right. It's simply, if I don't need to spend more time than necessary, I don't.

    I wasn't saying that a mezzaluna wasn't doing it right, it's just...

    Since I prefer to take the time to do it right, I don't really mind that a normal knife isn't as fast as using a mezzaluna.
