This year I’m going to try Nigel Slater’s recipe with quinces.
Recipe from here. The guinea fowl (free range from Waitrose) was great. Wasn’t really convinced by the lentil sauce.
This was an excellent banana cake — moist and sophisticated.
Some differences from the recipe:
- I missed out the chocolate.
- I used a real vanilla pod instead of vanilla extract.
- I didn’t sprinkle sugar on top.
- The bananas were not too ripe.
- Cooked for about 55 minutes, half that time covered in foil.
Jaffa cakes from this Jamie Oliver recipe:
They taste almost entirely unlike jaffa cakes though. Could do with more sweetness. The main problem is the recipe ingredients are all wrong: It needs more cake mix, about half the marmalade, and about twice the chocolate.
Cookies from this BBC recipe:
Not exactly sophisticated, but they taste OK.
Tasty! The secret is in the lemon and fennel fronds added afterwards, giving it a nice lift.
Recipe is this one but I didn’t bother with the onion.
Home-roasted peppers, coriander, pimenton and pine nuts pesto, pasta, and fresh salad from the garden.
This is the recipe – don’t put too much paprika in it.
