Desserts, Science Bite / 06.05.2016

I like to do a little research before I try a new recipe. And by a little I mean a lot. After hours of searching through cookbooks, magazines, the internet (and specifically Pinterest), I narrow it down to two or three recipes and then play around until I'm satisfied it's perfect. Maybe it's the scientist in me, maybe it's the perfectionist. For a dessert as simple as panna cotta with only 4 main ingredients, there is actually quite a lot to play around with! The exact quantity of every one of these ingredients is crucial to getting the perfect result. In...

Liquid Sunshine. In a jar. Just looking at it will make you think of daffodils and buttercups. Or minions. Happy things in any case! Lemon curd is a sweet and tangy lemon conserve. The texture is somewhere between a custard and a jam. Used warm it has a pouring consistency like a sauce, but once cooled it is smooth and spreadable.

More than 20 years later it has proven to stand the test of time exactly as it is, no changes or improvements required. I just love all the colours of this tart - the deep purple skins of the plums, the red and orange flesh, the golden pastry. It is an absolute showstopper of a tart, so it's perfect for a special tea-time treat or to end off a memorable meal. A cautionary note on the almond essence. This stuff is strong! A drop or two is...

Recipes, Tarts & Pastries / 29.03.2016

Everyone needs a super versatile pastry recipe in their repertoire. Once you've made this one, you won't believe how quick and easy it is - it probably takes longer to clean the food processor than it does to make the actual pastry. It's perfect for any tart or quiche recipe, sweet or savoury (just omit the icing sugar for a savoury recipe).  So crisp and buttery...
