Monday 3rd November 2014
- It’s that time of month – the Wine Bar is “popping up”. Not only will Iain and Oli have selected some amazing Australian wines, but the kitchen will be serving the Aussie favourite – Pad Thai and classic pudding – Pavlova. Hope you can make it, doors open at 6.00pm. We will have blankets available for the adventurous who wish to sit outside – “onesy’s” acceptable dress code…..
- Yikes – it’s November, which means we are all beginning to think of Christmas – or perhaps you are in denial – anyway here is my Christmas cooking list you may want to file for reading at a later date…..
- This weeks food issue is a fascinating video, recorded in 1974 in the States about food being a culture not a technology – it is long, but worth a listen if you are interested in the “rise and rise” of the mega farm.
- There are some great tofu recipes here. It is vital to use “good quality tofu” if you want it to be tasty (and perhaps convert persons). I always buy mine from one of the many oriental supermarkets in our area where they sell it fresh in the chiller.
- Calling all Facebook people – please like Cornucopia Cooks, it only takes a few seconds! (If you prefer twitter, why not follow Cornucopia Cooks)
