Few movies are as good at showing yummy food as Studio Ghibli movies.
Great looking food, as usual, in a Ghibli movie.
Together with my in-laws I also made Jamie’s best ever roast Turkey. This one really IS incredible. Jamie puts the (amazing!!) stuffing between the skin and the breast meat and puts a heated orange inside the Turkey. The orange gives the breast meat a subtle, slightly bitter orangey taste. Really nice. The little packages of a piece of garlic and some rosemary rolled inside a strip of pancetta which you then stick into the legs also give off an amazing taste (and taste lovely all by themselves ). The stuffing is very tasty. We substituted the dried apricots for dried cranberries. The orange and the stuffing make the breast meat extremely succulent and lovely. Together with some roast potatoes and cranberry sauce, this makes an excellent meal.
Home-made chicken liver pate with cointreau, caramelised onions and thyme.
End result chicken liver pate, lovely!
For a long time I have been wanting to make Chicken Liver pate, even though I am very, very picky when i comes to liver and pate. Yesterday I finally got around to it. I used the recipe from Ooh look Bel’s blog which should be the best ever chicken liver pate. I used cointreau instead of brandy or Grand Marnier and used an extra tiny bit of sage and rosemary. I can recommend this recipe, it makes a lovely pate!
I like to consider myself a pretty diverse reader, but there’s always been one big exception to that rule. I have never been a fan of the epic fantasy series that span tens-of-thousands of pages, and often come with many years of anxiety-inducing publication delays. (I spent many years worrying that J.K. Rowling was going to be assassinated before finishing Harry Potter. I don’t need more stress like that in my life.)
It’s not that I don’t like fantasy across the board; I just have limited patience for sprawling arcs with hundreds of characters with weird names to keep straight. More power to those of you who love them, but they weren’t for me. With all the buzz of late around Game of Thrones, though, I started to debate whether I should break my long-standing rule against watching movies or TV series before reading the books.
