Day Fifty Seven - Middle age has kicked in 😝


Week nine has officially started ... and as usual I was in the kitchen at 8 a.m. I didn't have a lot on today ... just a curry, rice and bread ... but what you forget is that you need to butcher the lamb also ... πŸ€”

It was a pretty good morning in the kitchen with my curry turning out "on point" (one of Rory’s favourite phrases) ... I probably should have tried to do something extra also but let's just say ... it was a Monday 😴

I was on bread duty today so I knocked up a brown yeast bread again and then I was on hens bucket duty!

Tomorrow I am on Guest lunch duty ... to look after any guests that join for lunch (poor guests) 😝

The afternoon demo was with Rachel and it was focused on Pasta ... lots and lots of pasta! 

  • Zucchini Blossoms, Tuma, Anchovies
  • Tuscan Sage and Anchovy Crisps
  • Homemade pasta
  • Marcella Hazan's Pappardelle or Noodles,
  • Chicken Liver Sauce
  • Ragu
  • Lasagne Verde 
  • Vegetarian Lasagne
  • Mary Jo’s Vegetarian Lasagne
  • Cannelloni, Cream Sauce
  • Marcella Hazan's Tortellini, Parsley, Ricotta, Alfredo Sauce
  • Tomato and Cream Sauce to serve with Cappelletti
  • Gillian Hegarty’s Ravioli with Sage Butter
  • Fettuccine Alfredo, Broad Beans, Leaves or Fresh Peas and Blossoms
  • Italian Green Salad, Rocket Leaves
  • Tira Misu
  • Zabaglione Ice-Cream
  • Italian Fruit Salad
  • Walnut Cake, American Frosting

After demo and the usual filing stint some of the younger guys decided to play some football ... I for some unexplainable reason decided to join them ... for the first time I experienced what it was like when your brain is doing something and your body isn’t ... (well not quite the first time but you get the idea πŸ’‘) Tomorrow is going to really hurt! 😝

Speaking of tomorrow ... I am making pasta ... cappelletti and a zabaglione semi freddo! This could be interesting πŸ˜‡
