Today before I left work I looked into the cold room and noticed we had loads of fresh root ginger. How will I use this up? So I went to my favourite website www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes . In the reciepe finder I just typed in 'soup with ginger' and they came up with this delicious soup 'Red lentil and ginger' ............now, if I have the red lentils I will put this soup on tomorrow.....If not, I'll modify the reciepe with some ingredient I do have in our store. This is a great website to use up those ingredients that are looking a bit sad in your fridge at home especially in these recessionary. times
We are always looking for inspiration for dishes at Niamh's and one of my favorite magazines is OLIVE....I love to dip in to it and adapt recipes for lunch specials or tasty desserts
'olive is the stylish, monthly magazine for food lovers who enjoy cooking, eating out and foodie travel'
This month they have a nice looking Italian meat ball melt which I hope to have on as a lunch special some day soon
WE have a delicious sandwich special this week - Pulled hickory pork open stacked sandwich with red cabbage coleslaw and rocket leaves - you can have it with soup of the day or salads or french fries. Of course this can be got to takeout from the Deli if you don't have time to join us in the restaurant
Today is Mary's (our pastry chef) baking day and she has just taken our of the oven this apple tart.....I stole the first slice and had it with lashings of creamy custard......it was fabulicious
