  1. Does the bacon go in raw? And can you tell us if “cooking cream” is “heavy cream” in the US, or “light cream”? Thanks very much.

    1. Hi Theo yes the bacon goes in raw. For us in Australia, cooking cream is one that resists splitting when heated. Do you have one like that? Otherwise, the corn flour you are adding should see you safe from splitting anyway if you use a regular cream that you’d cook with 🙂
