five fave's of the week

I had so much fun last week I thought I would play along with  Pip from Meet Me At Mikes again this week, besides, some times it's good to end the week on a happy note.

So, my five favourite things from the past week are, in no particular order.

1 - Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly by Anthony Bourdain, such a pleasurable read and a real romp.

2 - Making Quince paste in the dark, This culinary adventure happened to coincide with earth hour and I have to say it was quite a heady experience. Beeswax, Quince and Chardonnay, if only I could have bottled the vapours being emitted from my kitchen last night.

3 - Stinky, creamy, blue cheese all to myself!

4 - Gladiolas, my favourite Autumn cut flower. I picked a couple of bunches from the market this morning from my flower guy.

and lastly

5 - Jamican style curried goat as prepared by Andrew, melt in your mouth Caribbean goodness.


  1. I read Bourdain's book almost 10 years ago after living in Vietnam. And yes, I ate snake.
    Thinking of blue cheese now. I've always wanted to try it stuffed into a date. Might do that this week.

  2. Did you draw the quince, it's beautiful

  3. yup, the quince is one of mine. I've been getting back into drawing again. Glad you like it :)

  4. It's always good to hear from a fellow quince lover. They are not everyone's cup of tea but I love the smell, the fuzziness, the unyielding flesh that turns ruby red after slow cooking. They are one of my favourite things about Autumn.

  5. When can we come for dinner? Jamican style curried goat sounds awesome!

  6. oh andrew, good work my love. the way to a woman's heart...


Thanks ever so for taking the time to say hi!
