Food in brief for the weekend of 8/9 June

You know a particular food is good when I, a lover of ribs and bacon, choose a vegetarian dish over one with meat in it. I’ve developed an intense love for falafels, probably because one of the restaurants I go to with Andrew does really amazing falafels and hummus AND flatbread. Also, I can’t believe I hadn’t discovered the deliciousness of Turkish apple tea earlier than 2 weeks ago – shame on me!

One day I want to recreate this falafel sandwich wrap below plus find some place in Auckland that sells Turkish apple tea since the supermarket doesn’t…

Last night, I made dark chocolate soufflés and I think I realised as I was eating it that I actually don’t like making or eating stuff where the main ingredient is beaten egg whites. I just felt that the effort required to make the soufflés wasn’t entirely worth the ultimate experience. There was a general consensus around the table that the choc fondants I made on Friday night were a lot better, although this was also the first time I had made soufflés so I may not have made them as well as I could have.

The recipe I followed seems great though, so if anyone is interested…!

I’m not sure what my next cooking/baking attempts will be but I have quite a lot of heavy cream left, a request for onion and cheese pie and another for sushi. What to do, what to do…..
