Well the sun is shining here in Yorkshire (well it is at the moment guaranteed that in the next 5 minutes the heavens will open) and I’m enjoying the delights that this month has to offer.
Fresh flavours are in prime season such as Tomatoes and Basil, which I have been enjoying in simple Tomato & Mozzarella Salads and homemade Salsas.
Plums which are great fresh or in cakes and tarts, I made a great Plum and Hazelnut cake last week (recipe will be shared in the near future) which went down a treat with a piping hot brew.
And Crabs and Lobsters enjoyed fresh from the sea on coastal breaks especially great in Cornwall and Jersey. Also, it’s great to see that ice cream is bang on trend at the moment with an influx of crazy flavours over in the US such as Indian Pale Ale and Sriracha Popcorn. While over here the innovation lies in the making, in June I travelled down to Taste of London festival where Custom Creams were showcasing their new way of making our favourite frozen treat. They inject fresh cream, plus your choice of flavour, with Liquid Nitrogen to make the ice cream instantly right in front of you using a device that looks like a cross between a Kitchen Aid and something you would have seen in your science lesson back at school, just brilliant.
Well that’s the first post complete, lets see where the journey takes us.
