There has been a definite drop in the morning temperatures this week.
It’s been chilly enough to warrant a jacket.
There’s fewer jobs to do in the garden; leaving me more time to spend in the kitchen.
Pie season beckons so I thought I’d get some practice in and dust off the pie book.
Virtuously, I made the puff pastry before breakfast, giving it further rolls, folds and rests through out the morning.
The sauce was basically a roux sauce but made with cider instead of milk and enriched with creme fraiche.
The fish was a mixture of smoked and unsmoked haddock with king prawns.
I offered my daughter the left over 50ml of cider thinking it would be her first taste of cider. After some thought she said, ‘I prefer Strongbow’ !!!!!!!!!!
Anyway, this is the result.
It lacked some finesse, with a definite homemade look about it, but it tasted delicious.
My partner said if he had to choose between the two, he’d still go with Jamie.
No pleasing some people.
Love, Lucie xx
