Things have been busy and I kinda lost my way with the whole blogging recipes. So back with popular demand (OK, maybe just a slight demand), I’m going to start posting up some of my best food for students!
Easter has been sweet, done so much cooking and eating, whilst dieting. I’ve now lost 9lbs in 2 and a half weeks, but the test is being able to keep it going throughout next semester… We’ll see. I also did my first ‘cheffing’ job for some friends of a friend. They were having a dinner party and wanted me to do all the catering. Challenge, literally, accepted. So after 2 days of shopping, prepping and cooking (not to mention lots of money spent), I had produced several different canapes, starter of Pan Fried Scallops with Samphire and Crayfish beurre blanc, and for main, Whole Roasted Sirloin with Dauphinoise Potatoes, Fine Beans, Vichy Chantennay Carrots, Celeriac puree and Red Wine Reduction. OK, this isn’t student food I’ll admit, but cooking for 8 hungry people was a good test.
I’ve also been doing a lot of charcuterie too. I’ve made salt beef, pastrami, smoked cheeses, a whole side of smoked salmon, and even homemade duck prosciutto! Yeah I know, I’m pretty food obsessed.
So, today I’ll be posting 2 recipes in my massively hungover state; a really easy and healthy chilli, and homemade Scotch eggs - say bye to those rubbish, dry things you buy in the supermarket!
That’s all for now
