And so it begins…

FOOD! It has been a fairly central theme for me over the last month or so and I am setting up this blog as I intend for it to be a bit of a project over the next few months. As you all probably know, I’m going to have a bit of time on my hands and this blog will aim to track my progress as I do two things:

1) The Great British Bake Off Challenge – I am going to choose my favourite recipe from the Great British Bake Off each week and then try to recreate it in my kitchen.

2) The Great Emsworth Feeding Challenge – I want to eat more seasonal, sustainable, and interesting food. Living so close to the butchers and greengrocers I want to learn to cook with whatever is fresh and intend to share the results here.

  1. Yum! And don’t forget produce in the veg patch too. Lots of rocket, lettuce and so on coming up where George dug up the potatoes and we planted fresh the other week. Also quite a few beans still for us to harvest. Xxx


  2. Hi Kate
    Really enjoyed reading your blog. I have made lemon card using Delia Smith’s recipe which you might want to try next time:

    Grated rind and juice of 1 large lemon
    75g caster sugar
    2 large eggs
    50g unsalted butter

    Place the grated lemon rind and sugar in a bowl. In another bowl whisk the lemon juice together with the eggs, then pour this mixture over the sugar. Add the butter cut into little pieces and place the bowl over a pan of barely simmering water. Stir frequently till thickened -about 20 mins ( I seem to remember that the time taken was much shorter ).

    The Great British Bake Off is one of my favourite programmes which I have watched from the first series.

    Love Jane xx
