At Christmas I was given the Leith Baking Bible, a complete reference for all baked things sweet and savoury, filled with exotica and familiarity. I like to do a bit of baking at the weekends...
Happy Jubilee, everyone! We made a break for it across the Channel, staying in a gîte in the Quercy National Park near Cahors, in southern France, and prepared to eat and relax for nine days.
We decided to avoid eating out on Valentines Day, preferring not to pay through the nose for a set menu of pink heart-shaped food with soppy music. Cynical, moi?
We have just had a day of preemptive pancakery. Batter was whisked (2 large jugs), pancakes were tossed (about 30), lemons were squeezed (2) and Nutella was spread (1 jar).
Recently I went over to E’s for a girly night of cooking, trying out my new ravioli cutter and looking at Rightmove.
