Recipes from Nigella Lawson's Kitchen
I only cook on the weekends, but I've been out and about the past few months so I haven't had time to try out new recipes. Mum however has tried a couple of recipes from Nigella Lawson's Kitchen, and made the 40 cloves of garlic chicken last night which was de-li-cious! We only had 20 cloves of garlic, couldn't find fresh thyme from the supermarket (it was probably an ingredient on Masterchef so there was a surge in demand) and used a sweet De Bortoli wine we bought at Fergusson Winery in 2009 (as you can tell we rarely drink alcohol!).
The other recipe Mum tried from the book was the bake custard which was equally yummy. The custard however was watery at the bottom, which according to various cooking sites means that it was over cooked. Nevertheless dessert is dessert, and as long as it taste good, it's good enough for me!
