Nids de Monsieur Fouineur

February 24th, 2014 · No Comments

Turning once again to the esteemed ‘Livre de Cuisine des Monsieurs Hommes’ in search of culinary inspiration, Yumblog Junior chanced upon this complex and controversial confection from disgraced chef de cuisine and one time enfant terrible, Monsieur Fouineur. Hounded by the tabloids and plagued by rumours of espionage and peeping tomfoolery, this once great pâtissier […]

Chocolatey syrupy cornflake cakes

February 3rd, 2013 · No Comments

The plan was to make these with yumblog junior as part of a constructive and educational day of middle class parent/toddler fun. Despite initial enthusiasm and impatient requests of ‘cam i make cakes now?’, once the ingredients were assembled and all sharp objects removed from easy reach, the sprog decided she had more important things […]

Elizabeth Shaw luxury chocolates

August 13th, 2012 · No Comments

Perhaps it’s the imminent collapse of free-market capitalism, the melting of the polar ice caps, the influence of our reptilian Illuminati shapeshifting overlords, the demise of the bumble bee, or just our shameful lack of regular posts, but of late freebies have been few and far between here at Yumblog. So when our new best […]

Chocolate pithivier (minus the pithivier)

February 15th, 2012 · 2 Comments

We had a pair of Hebden Twins coming to dinner so obviously we Googled ‘What do twins eat?’ in search of appropriate ways to tickle their sapphic taste buds. The results threw up a biography of Sue Perkins and an incongruous and seemingly random set of images, but very little in the way of practical […]

ChocChip™ Cookies

January 28th, 2012 · 1 Comment

Needing as we did to both satisfy a craving for something sweet and shift some particularly average Christmas chocolate balls from Lidl, these ChocChip™ Cookies perfectly fulfilled both requirements. Obviously you don’t need to rush to Lidl and rummage through the ‘end of line’ slop bucket in search of the last remaining net of stale […]

Chocolate Bavarois

January 17th, 2011 · No Comments

Yumblog Towers saw in the new year with a feast which started with a (very disappointing) trout mousse, followed by a spectacular post-modern deconstructed prawn vol-au-vent, and rounded off with this profoundly rich Simon Hopkinson chocolate and cream-based dessert. A belated Happy New Year to our reader(s). Chocolate Bavarois

Review: l’Artisan du Chocolat Couture Chocolates

September 14th, 2010 · 2 Comments

Living as we do on the very crux of the nucleus at the epicentre of the heart of London’s fashionable East End*, we are lucky to be a brisk Lambeth walk away from the Smokery and epicurean nirvana that is Forman & Field. We were therefore rightly chuffed when they got in touch and asked […]

Chocolate & Honey Meringue

August 3rd, 2010 · No Comments

In our new guise as parents we have entered a world where being invited to someone’s house for lunch doesn’t necessarily mean that you will be leaving at midnight having drunk the Rhone valley dry. It’s novel and despite our underlying fatigue, sensible drinking on a weekend still seems inherently wrong. So we had been […]

Jme’s Double Chocolate Biscuit

August 3rd, 2010 · 2 Comments

In the lull between milk extraction and nappy changing I remembered the vast amounts of 85% plain chocolate I had bought and sought to put some of it to work. I was looking for a chocolate biscuit with a melty bit as I’d never made one before and none of my books could help. A […]

Langues de Chat Irregulières avec Ganache au Chocolat

April 12th, 2010 · No Comments

Ok, so if your beloved pussy approached you for a friendly lick and offered a tongue as mis-shapen as any of the examples below, you’d probably recoil with disdain, bundle it into a sack and rush it to the nearest canal vet. In our defence, this was our first attempt at such butter-rich chocolate-filled biscuits, […]

Chocolate Biscuits (Chip Cookies)

April 22nd, 2009 · 8 Comments

There was a first birthday party to attend and we thought that, in the interests of encouraging the eating of biscuits from as young an age possible, we would make chocolate chip cookies. Thing is we had plenty chocolate but no chips, plenty cocoa powder but no desire to add nuts to the mixture, so […]
