I have been having some wonderful food adventures over the last month – so wonderful I have forgotten to write about them. I am also pleased to announced that I have got me a full time job (hooray!) so I imagine I will cook less exciting food but maybe eat out a little bit more. Continue reading →
Last week I went to a cool forest just outside Cambridge to help Joe record some sounds without the background noise of traffic ever present in the city. On our little excursion I picked some of blackberries. Unfortunately I had not prepared for blackberries and thus had limited means of carrying them home, so the crumble I made only actually served three. I have doubled the quantities for this recipe, but the images show scaled down version. My next door neighbour has an apple tree that might as well be in our garden, so I picked a few apples from there and decided to make this crumble. The nutty crunch was really exciting and the paprika really helped to bring the fruity flavours alive. A classic autumn recipe with a twist.
This is the first pub I went to after moving to Cambridge. In fact it was the day we moved in and I was exhausted from packing at the other end for the last 3 days, driving the 100 miles from the south to the east and unloading in our new home. So I wanted a BIG meal, and I got a big meal.
