Peanut and Vanilla Ice Cream

Standard

Gordon Ramsay Just Desserts is the best book ever published. Seriously forget the Bible, I’ve tried the loaves and fish recipe, it didn’t work, don’t get me started on water in to wine.

This time I learnt Pate A Bombe, not difficult, very well explained, amazing result. My Ice cream maker may have taken some of the air out of the mix, but it was still the best Ice cream, I have ever made or had for that matter. The recipe was my own, peanut and vanilla love each other.  Looking forward to using Pate A Bombe to make Parfait and more. You all need to invest in Gordons Just Desserts Book. French classic techniques , most of which are easier than you think. There are no short cuts, once you have learnt some of them, you will be wowing the world with your results. Gordons recipes are Beautiful!

China Town Kitchen

Standard

Lizzie Mabbott is the author of this cool book. I have tried 3 recipes, great results.  Hoi Sin Ginger Pork ribs, I used Waitrose ribs, outdoor free range,good result. Chinese Fried Chicken , I used Tesco free range chicken, acceptable but try and get better.  Cola Chicken Wings, I used Pipers Farm chicken wings, best chicken outside of  France, seriously good. Cola wings were not overpoweringly sweet as I feared, really nice.
