1. I gone to a very posh food shop when I was in Edinburgh and bought a vanilla pod
2. Got some food for a fancy dinner party
3. I had my friends round and made this:
MENU: crostini with cannelini beans/bruschetta topping; gnocchi with aubergine and tomato sauce; floating islands (but we had them the next night because we were all too tired). Floating islands are poached meringues in a vanilla custard. The starter was a Jamie recipe and I had used his alla norma sauce recipe on my home made gnocchi.
Erin and Nicole had helped a bit, Iain helped me with the gnocchi
HELLO I had my first dinner party at the weekend ! we invited Daphne. It was hard to choose but I done it. I chose Italian food! We had Caprese salad followed by home made ravioli then for pudding it was lemon sherbet. I made a zebra cake that was better than Mary Berry’s one on sunday!!!!
Hallo, this weekend has been mummys birthday weekend. I cooked melitzanes papoutsakia – it is aubergines with beef mince in tomato sauce stuffed in. It is topped with white sauce with cheese and egg. Here is the recipe:
We also cooked a cake with chocolate and beetroot in it for my Mum’s birthday cake. The recipe was from a book that my mum got for her birthday, we did the heartache cake but with beetroot not aubergine:
You cook the rice with vegetables – carrots and onions. when it was cooked we stuffed it into peppers and cooked it:
we also made bread and brownies.
The brownies were very strong so if you live in alford and go to the little coop, only use milk chocolate because there isn’t any dark chocolate except for 85% dark chocolate and that is too dark but we still are eating them
