“Pizza Bianca” with Mushrooms & Black Garlic
In the fridge today was a small dish of leftover Alfredo Sauce, 2 mushrooms and half a pizza base. Lunch was immediately obvious ...
See here for Alfredo Sauce recipe (used in a similar way!) – I just spread the cold sauce on the base and topped with the mushrooms, coarsely chopped black garlic, grated Gran Padano and coarsely ground black pepper. Talk about Lunch!
Speaking of which yesterday my friend Carol and I partook of lunch at St. Petroc’s Bistro – one of Rick Stein’s many eateries in Padstow. It was a special menu to raise money for Save the Children.
I had …
Baked Cod with Garlic
Orange Tart with Crème Fraîche
Carol had …
Smoked Trout with Horseradish Cream
Panna Cotta with Poached Rhubarb and a (perfect) Shortbread
It was both good value and delicious with excellent friendly service but I do have a small demur - it was a very, very, very, very garlicky meal. Not only was the cod topped with whole garlic cloves but the dish of perfectly cooked cabbage served with the meal was at least 25% al dente slices of garlic. Now I don’t mind a bit of garlic, me, but my real man was appalled when he got home and had to feed me humbugs throughout the evening to try and clear the air!
Periodic Tables – oddly enough!
I have seen a few unusual periodic tables on the net recently;
- The Periodic Table of Desserts – “A Scientific and Rigorous approach to patisserie”!,
- The Table of Condiments that Periodically Go Bad
- The useful Periodic Table of Produce – showing storage info
- ... and lots here
... simple yet effective.
