10/4/12- Taste of Britain Tuesday- Easter

I hope everyone had a lovely Easter weekend! 

I made these hot crossed buns on Good Friday, and it was my first time making hot crossed buns. I got the recipe from "The Great British Book of Baking", and they worked out pretty well, only negative is seemed a little bit dry. I've also always wondered what the cross was made out of, and finally learned- how exciting! (It's the small things right?)

I also tried the Lemon Meringue Tart recipe for Easter Sunday dinner which was delish. I was going to share a photo of that, but it did not photograph well. It was darn good however!

The recipe book calls it a Lemon Meringue Tart rather than pie, as they explained that the pie is an American take on the British Lemon tart.

4/4/12- Pardon?

It's April 4th and we got snow last night. I felt like I was back home in YYC. 

Not impressed.

3/4/12- Taste of Britain Tuesday- Chouquette

"Little Paris Kitchen" is a new cooking show on tv here. The host is Rachel Khoo, a British gal who moved to Paris to attend Le Cordon Bleu

I have yet to buy her cookbook from the show, but have tried a few recipes that were posted online. Today I tried chouquettes - a French pastry. 

She suggested you could sprinkle the pastries with chocolate chips, or a granulated sugar, but I just used icing sugar this time around. (You can also make them savory by adding cheese). 

Very easy to make, and with a delicious result- light and airy and so lovely! (By the time this post is finished, all of them will most likely be gone).

Like the other baking book I mentioned last week, prepare to hear me mention Little Paris Kitchen in the near future. 

I mean - a show that includes Paris and food? Amazing!
