COOKING

So I've started having organic/free range vegetables/fruit/meat/dirt delivered in a box from a local farm. Riverford, in case it matters. Mostly to make myself learn how to cook, but also because I hate giving supermarkets my money for stuff I don't really want to buy.

These boxes are a bit food roulette, as you can't really choose what you get, as it's all seasonal. So far I've learned to cook broad beans (including a stunning broad bean and courgette risotto, if I do say so myself), weird kinds of cabbage, kaesespaetzle mit blattspinat, how to play padron pepper roulette and how not to joint half a chicken. Chocolate courgette cake was good, afelia was AMAZING, and I've got a whole lot better at cooking in general. I even did a steak, potato, roast tomato and broad bean salad. I know, I know, who am I and what have I done with Nom?!

I'm going to start trying to keep some kind of recipe record here, as I have no better place to do it. I'll try put them under a cut so I don't end up being a recipe bore.

On which note... )

I am going to attempt this later, as I have raspberries in the box and otherwise I will just gronf the lot.
