I have been asked by a friend to republish my list of 40 challenges, with the ones that I have completed crossed off. So here you go. As you can see, there are about eleven left to go. Some of these are booked, some are ongoing, some are tantalisingly close to being finished, and at least two are looking pretty hopeless at this stage. But I am spending every spare moment obsessing about them at least.
|Loaf 23: Spelt and honey loaf (the recipe book says the loaf is meant to be sunken in the middle)|
|Loaf 24: What happens when you use a packet of yeast that has been open too long. An inedible brick. |
In the background you can see jars of my green tomato chutney, made with my home-grown tomatoes.
It's still maturing.I haven't dared try it yet.
|Loaf 27: Chocolate and Banana Bread again|

|My very own spinach and ricotta filled pasta|
|Cooked and served with a burro bruciato and white truffle sauce|
|Panna cotta with generous smears of compote (my greed wins over grace)|
