I love it when NaBloPoMo has a foodie topic
I don’t know if I can choose just one favourite thing to cook. I love cooking and baking almost as much as I love eating. I love spending time cooking a creamy risotto with butternut, bacon and red onions. I love my slow cooker and having the smells of a homemade stew or filling for a chicken pie filling the kitchen during a cold day. I love an old fashioned roast with all the trimmings.
I think my favourite savoury thing to cook is a persian lamb stew that my dad adjusted to his liking called karafs khoresh – but I almost never get to make it because DH cant stand celery. I’ll post my dad’s version one day when I get to make it again – his includes prunes and they make it a special treat served with couscous.
I bake because I have a serious sweet tooth! I love Spiral pudding from my friend Anne, a sponge pudding soaked in a sweet milky syrup. I love Janet’s sticky chocolate pudding with ice-cream. I love caramel cheesecake. I really really love sh*t cake… even if I loathe making it.
If I even think about food for much longer they may have to move me out of my house with a crane
