2010 has been a busy year for both of us and who would have thought that this year’s resolution to turn my love of food in to day job would come true. Along with trying new recipes and techniques we have eaten and experienced many fabulous places.
Croissants – if the hits on the blog are anything to go by Croissants are top. Although they are time-consuming to make I very much enjoyed making and eating these.
Tandoor Oven – One of Hubs’ most recently projects. The lack of summer did mean it didn’t get used as much as we hoped so crossed fingers for a decent Summer 2011 so we can brush up on Naan bread making.
Murgh Makhani – Mallika made me realise that Indian food can be easy and delicious.
Gingerbread Men – My top google hit of the year which hit a spike over December. Not surprising given it’s one of my favourite recipes in my cookery classes.
Northcote – Our first Michelin starred experience came courtesy of a visit to Northcote. A superb meal along with Afternoon Tea with a fantastic stay in one of their rooms.
Our glamping staycation – Perfect summer weather, a clay pizza oven, friends, open fire and cider from orchard less than a mile down the road. What more could you want?
A colourful gardening – The theme for our garden this year was very much bright coloured vegetables and edible flowers. Due to the success of the peas in the garden they will certainly be returning next year.
As for 2011, who knows what it will bring? Let’s hope it’ll be friends, food and fortune.
