From Scone school to BBQ – my week in food 20/05/13
I began this week with a Scone School. It was a full class, a mother and daughter and a couple of friends. What did they want out of the class? All wanted to learn how to make big fluffy scones- one of the women was following a gluten-free diet and want to make some gluten-free scones, as the ones she had made herself before the class she said had been a bit like eating cardboard.
Room already to go. An enjoyable evening was had by all, and they all went home with a bag of scones from these beauties.
On Wednesday, I heading out for dinner with friends at The Pantry, somewhere I had wanted to try since it opened. While we waited for everyone to arrive, we got some lovely bread and butter to munch on, while deciding on what we were going to eat. I chose 2 starters;
Chicken liver pate with rhubarb and micro herbs
Black pudding and apple salad
The choice for pudding was a beautiful chocolate giraffe tart or cheese- I chose the cheese:
We had a wonderful evening, the food and service were excellent and I look forward to heading back soon to The Pantry for breakfast or lunch.
Thursday nights dinner I made from this:
and turned it into this:
on the plate chicken and chorizo rice
The sun came out on Saturday, so we decided to have a barbecue, consisting of chicken, sausages and veggie burgers
…. also some seasonal asparagus with lemon and olive oil
The sun was still out on Sunday – so we packed the car with our beach tent, chairs, rug and a picnic hamper filled with goodies — I had picked up some lovely bread from Breadshare at St Mary’s market on Saturday…
We had a really enjoyable day relaxing on St Andrews West Sands.
When we got home we had chicken nachos for dinner
