Make Eat Get Read Go – May ’14
Pom pom fruits by Mr Printable
I remember as a child being slightly obsessed with making pom poms. Blame a pom pom kit I was given for Christmas. However even with a kit I don’t think I got as far as anything that wasn’t round and one colour. While we wait for the strawberry season to kick off properly in the UK maybe I should make some wool pom pom strawberries. Got to be easier than trying to attempt an amigurumi one.
Chocolate Pistachio Eclairs from Little Loaf
Only as an adult have I begun to appreciate sweet, cream filled choux pastry. The Little Loaf has managed to combine another one of my favourite ingredients, pistachio, in these chocolate pistachio eclairs. The Little Loaf also working on her first cookbook that I know I’ll have to get once it’s been released.
Bread Alphabet from Becka Griffin
I already own Becka Griffin’s alphabet of cheese as it was given to me as a house warming present. I think this bread alphabet print will pair with it perfectly. I also love her Liverpool skyline drawings.
Short & Sweet by Dan Lepard
Now I have a confession; I got Dan Lepard’s Short & Sweet from the library when it first came out and I wasn’t impressed, not that I tried any of the recipes, I just didn’t feel inspired. Fast forward a few years and everyone is still raving about the book so I decided I had to give it a second chance. The Foodie Bugle have a good 2 for 1 offer on their pre-loved cookbooks so decided to buy a copy. To make up for my alleged cookbook buying ban I’ve bought Ginger Pig meat cookbook for Hubs.
Perfect Pies & Pastry with GBBO Beca
Hubs is the king of savoury pastry in this house and he only goes to prove that with his pork pie making skills. We like a bit of competition here so I’m off on a Perfect Pies & Pastry course with GBBO 2013 contestant Beca to see if I can beat him. There is talks of having a blind taste off in the pub afterwards to see who is the king or queen of savoury pastry. Stakes are high.
