MTT: Creamed Leeks

¬†Confession: I have not been to a supermarket since Hux was born. Whilst this is undoubtedly good for the soul it is simultaneously bad for the wallet, as both our villages’s Co-op and Tesco Express are more expensive than the huge supermarket down the road.


MTT: Garlic Oil

Do you remember about 4 or 5 years ago, when Pizza Express had those vouchers for 241 pizzas all over the internet? We used to meet our friends there after work most Fridays and have a night of Pizza and wine. And this is when my serious garlic obsession began.
I always ordered the same pizza, the La Reine, and the discovery of garlic oil as an addition to it was a revelation.


MTT: Chips Two Ways

Will tells me it’s bad form to judge a restaurant by the chips they serve as it’s so subjective, but I do. Every time. Not ordering fries in a restaurant is a rare occurrence for me (my preference: French Fries. Thin cut, crispy on the outside, soft on the inside) and I will return to an eaterie just for the chips. I love them.


MTT: Boston Baked Beans

Does Barbecued food contain Umami? I’m not sure, but these barbecue-ish Boston Baked Beans do have a taste that makes me want to simultaneously smack my lips, say “yummmmm”, smile, and rub my belly in a very contented manner. They really are that delicious and moreish.
I’d like to point out that:
1. They’re cooked with Pork Belly

Panzanella recipe

MTT: Panzanella

There have been a couple of new additions to my Life List this week, one of them being ‘do a foodie tour across Italy’. As much as I wholeheartedly love Greek food, to me the Italians do it with more finesse, variation, and most importantly, wine.
