Re: The cookery thread.

The other half always shouts at me for taking photos while I'm cooking, guess I'll have to post something up next time I'm experiementing in the kitchen...

two big things that I just happen to have sat in my photo folder at this moment..

Image
Partridge, rubbed in butter & wrapped in parma ham, served on a bed of new potatos, with appropriate vegtables.
I know probably doesn't sound much, but never had partridge before so was quite a big experiment on my part, to prepare and cook. espcially as the partridge was from a friend who owns a farm and hadn't been plucked very well, so had to be cleaned up etc. A warning for people who wish to try iot, it's possibly the most "Gamey" thing I have ever eaten in my life, very very nice, but very very strong.

A pretty old one this, a cake I made for my better half, can you guess what film I was dropping hints that I wanted to go see...

Image

It worked anyway, inside was two sponge cakes, with cream and jam, layered on top of each other, and sculpted into the shield shape. Coloured the icing myself, took about 3 weeks to get the red off of my hands :(. Beer bottle was for scale, and taste :D

And incase anyone is wondering about different work tops, the top one was done in the our holiday home, and the bottom one at home.
I'll get my coat...

That said, you can never cook too much spaghetti. :D



The shine is lemon oil :)

And yeah the pictures did not do the sauce justice. It tasted awesome however :D

Re: The cookery thread.

Guh Studdarts post has made me hella hungry.

Here's some tempura I made at the weekend. I've made lots of batters but never a tempura. It went supprisingly well. Was delicious. :)

Re: The cookery thread.

Once in a while, I make some food as well:

It's a mix of onion, garlic, bacon, dried and salted lamb, and cheese.
It was quite tasty, though a bit too salty towards the end.

Re: The cookery thread.

Likely not something I'll make as I totally lack the motivation to be creative when it comes to food, but something others may like to try out:

Re: The cookery thread.

pumpkin seeds are a must. Did you know they contain more tryptophan than turkey :)
