I’ve been on a course all day about Special Needs Education & Therapy so I left the food shopping in the capable hands of hubby. Tonight he cooked me a very very nice black pepper crusted fillet steak with chips inspired by the chips Heston Blumenthal cooked on his TV programme – In Search of Perfection. Hubby would love to go to Heston’s The Fat Duck, but I’m not sure I could stomach Snail Porridge and would adore to dine at Claridges.
Hubbie’s Heston inspired chips
4 medium sized maris piper potatoes, peeled and cut into chips
1) Boil in slightly salted water for 8-10 mins, or until the potatoes are about to break up.
2) Drain potatoes, place on baking tray and drizzle with oil. Cook at 240oc for 15min, or until golden brown.
This evening I started to sort out my cookbook collection and have decided I should cook at least one new recipe from my cookbooks each week. The past fortnight has been British Food Fortnight. It has been quite well publicised near me..well apart from Morrisons trying to pass off a well known Russian dish as British food!
