As I welcome in 2013 and say good bye to a hectic but very enjoyable 2012 I decided to rate my Eats, Shoots & Reads challenge and walk you through my “Top of the Pops” or in this case, Top of the Eats!
Tender, juicy, rich and delicious with the lightest dumplings I’ve ever tasted! Definitely deserving of number 1!
My first Eats challenge and what a tricky challenge it was. I’d never made meringue or caramel before so I was thrown in at the deep end – I guess being my first recipe it was inevitable it would hold a special place in my memories.
I was never that keen on gnocchi but these soft, creamy, zingy, fluffy pillows definitely converted me!
One of my earlier fish dishes, delicate, tangy and delicious! A dish I’ve cooked several times since!
Not the best dish for a diet but definitely lived up to it’s name!
Creamy, rich, delicious! What more needs to be said!
#7: Prawn Cocktail
An old classic with a twist. Juicy, crunchy and with an added kick!
#8: Oozy Egg Ravioli
The most stressful recipe of my challenge! Deserving of a place in the top 10 due to sheer technique and the fact I managed to pull it off!
Indulgent, rich, dark and delicious! A true favourite!
Crispy, tender, juicy duck with a lovely spiced plum sauce – simply delicious!
