(A variation on) Raymond Blanc’s Tomato Essence

April 30th, 2010 · 2 Comments

Mucking about with a Raymond Blanc recipe…I know, the arrogance of it. Generally I would follow Monsieur Blanc’s instructions to the letter, but I had no Angostura Bitters and was not prepared to buy a bottle just for required 2-3 dashes, and I suspected my local CostCutter was unlikely to stock either banana shallots or […]

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, […]

Congratulations Dhruv

April 8th, 2010 · 1 Comment

Congratulations to NuDadDhruv for winning last nights MasterChef. He and the rest of the show will be greatly missed here at Yumblog Towers, although on the plus side we’ll no longer have to watch the endlessly repeated clip of the Tower of London toff coyly complaining “I think if I hadn’t been told it was […]

Mushroom, Spring Greens & Lincolnshire Poacher Toasts

April 6th, 2010 · No Comments

It’s finals week and MasterChef has entered the wacky ‘It’s a Knock Out’ stage.

Happy Easter from yumblog

April 1st, 2010 · No Comments
