Creole Cream Cheese

Jan 28th, 2013 by Michael | Comments Off on Creole Cream Cheese

We’re no strangers to the slow food movement, we adore taking the time to make things ourselves. We’re also big fans of keeping our respective food cultures alive and kicking, and spreading the joy to anyone who can’t get out of the way fast enough. *grins* I recently undertook the task of discovering how to […]

Tiramisu

May 16th, 2011 by Gemma | 2

Tiramisu comes from the Italian for “pick me up” and boy does it. This has to be one of my all time favourite desserts. If you’ve not had it before where have you been? The best way to explain (aside from saying go try some now!) is that it’s an Italian trifle.  I’ll go ahead […]

Marshmallows don’t usually generate a lot of fuss.  They’re typically something most folks buy by the cheap bagful at the mega-mart, and never think twice about.  To these folks I say this: if you’ve never had a fresh, handmade marshmallow, you’ve never given your inner child a hug. The texture is tremendously better, the flavors […]

I’m a bit of a fan of mixing sweet and savoury, I haven’t done a whole lot of it but the idea intrigues me and I’ve liked what I have tried. Bacon seems to be a trend at the moment, it’s in everything. So I figured why not join the club and give it a […]

Irish Coffee Panna Cotta

Sep 29th, 2010 by Gemma | Comments Off on Irish Coffee Panna Cotta

I talked about Irish coffee a while back, when we made the muffins inspired by the drink. Since then we acquired some Irish coffee glasses and I was mulling over what I could make that could be presented in them, they have such a wonderful distinctive shape it would be a shame to only drink […]
