Cookingbookclub 12 | Nigella’s recipes

As you can remember, this year we are cooking from #321sourcesofinspiration, the last one for this year being Nigella Lawson. Which Nigella just got a new TV show based on a new book called “Cook.Eat.Repeat.” I watched two episodes and had a lot of fun to see what disasters is cooking, omgosh. ๐Ÿ˜› As for

Special ep. – festive couscous

Well, the trick of this main course – garnish are the spices. Usually I made couscous mixed with a little salt or vegeta. This time, however, I used, as written in the recipe, a mixture of spices, which raised the couscous to another level. ๐Ÿ˜€ To prepare the recipe, boil a large cup of water.

Special ep. – turkey strips

Well, this is a pretty modified recipe. Because Nigella’s original was with grated Parmesan cheese on top and a sauce with eggs and cream. Sorry, we don’t serve that this year. ๐Ÿ™‚ If you want this version, look for “Ed’s Victorious Turkey Hash”, as the original recipe is called. My variant: a piece of turkey

Special ep. – red salad

Nigella’s red salad, used as an entree, I think is one of the fastest inventions. From three ingredients, YEIII! Specifically, a can of red beans, rinsed well and drained is placed in a bowl.

A good cocktail with amaretto and lemon juice. Yes, of course is a bit sour, like any authentic disaster. :))))) The recipe for a cocktail is as follows: 3 parts amaretto liqueur, 2 parts lemon juice mixed and poured into a glass, with or without ice. I preferred without. Garnish with a glazed cherry and

Ep. 91 – 321 dough (linzer, isler)

Well, you will see the best pictures today, the ones for guests, but to get to this level I can tell you that I burned a few trays of cookies in the last two or three Christmases. ๐Ÿ™‚ Dough 321 as I name it, to make it easier to remember, is a very fine dough

Special ep. – panettone

When you don’t know how to make brioche, what do you do? You make panettone. ๐Ÿ™‚ On one of the few times I tried to make a brioche, it grew, looked impeccable, but had no taste. Because I forgot to put salt in it. :))) It’s just that this year I discovered some candied fruits
