Mmm food! I’ve really enjoyed the last few knit nights – not only the conversation, but also the challenge I’ve set myself of cooking ‘proper food’ for my lovely friends.
Thankfully S and L came over in time to help with photo taking, folding and turning!
Doing it again, I wouldn’t change much – I’d roll out the pastry a little before adding the filling – I ended up with a little of bursting, and needed an extra set of hands to close the roll. I also failed to turn it over – but I’m not convinced that was vital anyway! I’m not sure I’ve made puff pastry from scratch before, so that’s definately something to explore too – I relied on Jus-Roll pre rolled this time!
I failed to take photos of it as it came out of the oven, or just before it went in, but here are the photos I did get!
(Rice with Dill – Mushroom, Spinach and Garlic mixture – Trying to hold the roll together while S takes a photo! – As it went into the oven – Finished! Served with a basic salad with a bit of olive oil and balsamic vinegar)
Someone at work is selling some recipe books really rather cheaply, so I have more ideas on the way. What are your favourites?
I’ve had an exciting few weeks, so there are a few posts in the works – the new library, an awesome gig and an amazing launch party!
Till next time…
