Recipe from here. The guinea fowl (free range from Waitrose) was great. Wasn’t really convinced by the lentil sauce.
From Hugh’s recipe here. The rosehips are from the tree in our front garden.
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.
After simmering with some vegetables for four hours:
I chopped up the trotters and ears and pressed it in the fridge overnight. It makes a kind of brawn pie:
After breading but before cooking:
The final taste is not unlike nankotsu. It works well with the breadcrumbs, but would be fairly inedible without them.
Update This tastes much better cold the next day, with a bit of mayonnaise.
I used raw chickpeas, which held together very well when cooked (unlike using tinned chickpeas).
