Today we welcome the fabulous Ladies Wot Lunch who will mingle, natter, giggle and have lunch!
We are eating Ottolenghi style today so everything will come out of the kitchen as fast as Alan can carry it. Dip in, pass it around, chat and eat lots.
A large board of all things charcuterie, salamis, chorizo, olives, air dried hams served with a variety of breads to tear and share.
Homemade Labneh - a Middle Eastern yogurt cheese with olives, pistachios and basil - go on, dip it in and give it a whirl.
Roasted Red Onions with a Walnut Salsa - Not sure this needs much explanation red onions are roasted and dotted with some soft goats cheese and drizzled with the warm dressing.
Roast lemon turmeric and black pepper salmon - Turmeric is an old Indian spice used for thousands of years as a herb.
Chicken with caramelised onions and cardamom rice - this one pot wonder is a great way to cook chicken and rice together, the rice infuses with the chicken juices, the aromas and flavours that fill the kitchen at every stage of cooking are intoxicating.
Chilli-roast sweet potato, courgettes, roast garlic, hazelnuts and pears.
Home made ice cream, meringue, fruit and cream.
Chocolate, there must be chocolate .....
Ground coffee, Yorkshire tea, mint tea, green tea, liquorice tea, pomegranate and apple tea and decaf coffee if anyone wants one.
