Sorry for being a bad blogger and not posting anything for awhile, I have been very busy with my new job and life and stuff but have been taking a few photo's here and there of lovely food I have made so here are Lot's of things in one post!
I made a lemon tart with puff pastry instead of shortcrust as that is all I had but it was bloody gorgeous. I used un-waxed organic lemons, double cream, melted butter, eggs and extra egg yolks and icing sugar to make my tart.
This is a chicken breast stuffed with mozzarella and wrapped in parma ham that I roasted in the oven with spicy chorizo and vine tomatoes. I served it with wilted spinach and a proper baked potato, I hate microwave baked potatoes they are a disgrace!
Here is the start of my roast chicken and veg soup that I made using left over roast chicken, homemade chicken stock and Lot's of leeks, carrots, butternut squash, cabbage and whatever other veg I could find
Yummy roast chicken and veg soup
I didn't make this but I had to show you guys a photo, it was my boyfriend's Birthday and lot's of us went to his friends Thai restaurant for dinner and I had stuffed squid and it came out with this amazing carved bird on the side! Apparently one of the chefs spends hours carving animals out of carrots in his spare time and they use for decoration, fabulous!
A pile of beautiful wild mushrooms foraged by my Mother and given to me to use in my cooking.
I got a duck crown and roasted it stuffed with apples and onions and put whole apples that I cored in for good measure.
I somehow managed to delete the picture of my whole roasted duck because I am a fool but I can assure you it was lovely.
I served it with braised red cabbage, duck fat roast potatoes and redcurrant gravy.
I will be doing a proper post very soon!
