Kitchen news – 15th May 2014

Week 3 and our first news back since last term – and my goodness how busy we’ve been since then! We’ve had some smashing workshops over the holidays with Li, Amelia and the gang at Vacation Care, cooking up some wonderful bowls of Green herb soup, steaming trays of Autumn pizza with herby mushrooms and rocket, some chunky individual Frittate with pumpkin, feta and spinach, and testing out our new Spiraliser gadgets (thanks to Tonia, Anna & Alice for the loan of theirs!) with the funky Zucchini, mint and lemon salad with pangrattato. And we even rolled up some of Ava’s famous Anzac biscuits!

And the first menu back for Term 2 has included some delicious new and old favourites too: Potato and rosemary pizza is back – testing our mandoline skills – along with the Poached egg salad with creamy basil mayo and fresh-podded garden peas, and some punchy Carrot muffins with garlic butter (watch out vampires – our stinky garlic breath is coming for you!). Also some hearty dishes for those cool nights: Moroccan chickpea hotpot; and the easier-than-you-think Cheese and spring onion soufflés. Don’t mind if I do!

All recipes are up to date here now – but drop me a line if you don’t see what you want…

We’re always after new (and old!) volunteers but PLEASE let us know in advance if you’re coming along so that we can plan our classes!

Cheers, Melissa x
