Salmon paté with dill pickle. In the background : Tiger prawns with garlic.
Pork Rillettes (potted pork from our own pigs) not made by me but by the French charcutier who is on the Wednesday market in Kenmare.
Pork paté with a very boozy gelatine.
Porchetta. Rolled pork belly with herbs. Serious crackling.
Green bean, feta and pomegranate salad with a lemon, ginger and mustard dressing.
Nigel Slater's pears and shallots to go with the ham. Big, big hit !
Talk about a retro kitchy cake. The last time I made this was probably when I was 16.
I bought the tacky embellishments especially for this cake.
There was more, much more and there still is. So time to portion off some food and vacuum seal it ready for the freezer.
I will be putting up recipes further along the road of some of these dishes.
I've got achy bones and muscles.
Is it worth it ? All that work for a binge fest that lasts all of 5 hours?
Definitely ! Love my friends !
