A little later than planned, but here is what we should be cooking this coming weekend in the kitchen.
In no particular order
Bruet of almaynne, bruet of almayne in lente, crustade lumbarde, tarte of frute in lente, flathouns in lent, lente ffrutours, fretoure owte of lente, cruste rolle, ryschewys in lente, brewes in lentyn and brwes in lentyn.
Hopefully we'll be playing around with the lent and non lent versions of some of these recipes like the crustade; as well as trying to get some tasty Lenten dishes with the other recipes. A couple of them are there for a little bit of experimentation like:
¶Flathouns in lente.
¶Take & draw a þrifty Milke of Almandes; temper with Sugre Water; þan take hardid cofyns, & pore þin comad þer-on; blaunche Almaundis hol, & caste ther-on Pouder Gyngere, Canelle, Sugre, Salt, & Safroun; bake hem, & serue forth.
This will be interesting to see how it comes out (liquid in a tart case I think) and how much can we affect the final dish by playing with different thicknesses of almond milk?
The plan is also to take a lot of pictures that show the various processes involved in the recipes and hopefully a lot more 'step by step' pictures to be able to illustrate how we've done whatever it is that we do?!?..........who knows, perhaps there's a book in that idea somewhere?
Easters plans are coming together nicely as well, I'm pretty much sorted for the 2 non Lent days on the Sunday and Monday, just got Good Friday and the Saturday to get sorted. Some of that will depend on the results of this weekend.......who knows the guys may find something so good that they want to eat it again........somehow I doubt it though as they/we are all confirmed carnivores and these non-meat recipes just don't sit right.
Previous Lenten days have been a little hit and miss I think......'nutty wall paper paste' is one of the common phrases that you can hear emanating from the various workstations around the kitchen and with no roasting to be done, Ross is always at a loss for things to do......although it does quite often mean that the washing up is kept well under control.....something that's always appreciated by the rest of the team. Lets just hope that this year we can improve on those comments eh?
As always with the weekend, comments by text are a virtual certainty.....pictures a possibility and video.........who can tell!
