I’ve been out for a few days and I apologise. I, along with a great many others, was kinda busy electioneering, then recovering/bludging.
Al I’m gonna say on the matter is “Woohoo, a Green in the House of Reps, 9 (9!) Green Senators, and highest Green vote, well, ever! Yay!”. That’s it, I’m done now. This is a food blog, after all.
Next up, we have the verdict for France, which I forgot to post last week when I was drowning in leaflets.
I enjoyed making the food this week, even when it tanked (like the creme caramel). The Seitan Bourguinon was definitely a highlight, and as always I had fun with the soups.
I didn’t attempt a croissant this time, as the weather was too cold to get dough to rise in my kitchen. Having tried it before though, I can tell you that the recipes using coconut oil alone are a sham, and the nuttelex gets a passable but not great pastry. I was going to attemot a mixture of the two, melted together then reconstituted in the fridge. I will try it one day, in less inclement weather, and I’ll let you know how it goes.
French food, on the whole, generally scores pretty well with me, and when I can be assured no cute-furries (or even icky-slimies) were harmed in the making, well, the judge is impressed.
Next up is Mexico, due to the abundance of corriander being produced by our garden. Looking forward to it!
