So I’m obsessed to an extent with sport, my other obsession is food……since moving to Country Town I have managed to completely fill one bookshelf with cookbooks and am halfway through the second bookshelf, which is an even bigger effort given that I had to put the bookshelves together and I am so not a handy-person in any way, shape or form. It took me about 1&1/2 hours to put the first bookshelf together. I also look at plenty of recipes online. The only problem is that I have quite literally the world’s tiniest kitchen and there are so many food items you cannot but in Country Town, or the next town.
I’ve got a few favourite chefs….such as………..
I will not hear a bad word about Heston, if Heston was to knock on my door (yes I know there is no chance of that happening in Country Town), but I would be rendered speechless and watch him cooking with my chin on the ground and gaping wide open mouth, such is my adoration for Heston. I have made his popping-candy chocolate cake….OMG so so good!!! And no this is not my photo of the cake…
I adore Nigella, she is food porn to the extreme. I love watching Nigella, love her recipes. Have tried numerous recipes.
Chocolate cloud cake…..so good
Forgotten pudding….so simple and easy
Lemon meringue cake….so, so, so, so, so good!!!
Chocolate raspberry pavlova….mmmmmmmmmmmmm
Of course I also adore Donna Hay….
Her chocolate salted caramel tart is to die for…
And of course Adriano Zumbo…………..OMG the man is a genius of cooking sweet things!!! As opposed to those that know nothing about Australian celebrity chefs and have no idea who Zumbo is and think you’re talking of Zumba…yeah not likely!
I mean hello……….. I would quite happily eat this….not cook it, but eat it!!
It may look rather simple, but don’t judge a cake by it’s cover….there are the following things are part of this recipe:
- vanilla creme chantilly
- toasted vanilla brulee
- vanilla water gel
- vanilla glaze
- vanilla ganache
- brown sugar crumble
- vanilla macaron
- vanilla dacquiose
- vanilla chiffon cake
- vanilla almond crunch
- vanilla syrup and
- white chocolate flowers and tiles.
Just a few things!!
