In the last few weeks in my kitchen I have…
:: Burnt the pumpkin pie!!! No pictures of that disaster. It was salvageable though. We just had to miss out on the yummy crust. But the pie filling and base still tasted delicious.
:: Made my first ever batch of lemon curd. Oh it is yummy and has the most difficult to describe “old-fashioned” flavour. I’m not quite sure how something can taste “old-fashioned” but lemon curd definitely does.
:: Cooked the most delicious pasta sauce using chorizo from free-range pigs. Bought from my farmers’ market of course!
:: Started my Christmas baking. I LOVE Christmas baking. First up has been a couple of fruit cakes. Chock full of all sorts of fruit from figs to crystalised ginger to good ol’ sultanas. And of course, liberal doses of brandy.
