Parsnip Soufflé – Yay!

Why hello autumn – who the hell invited you here? I for sure am not ready to greet you and your earthy colours welcome just yet. Although that’s not very PC, I know. We’re all supposed to be “can’t-wait-to-go-for-long-walks-wearing-my-perfect-vintage-sweater”. Nope, not quite there yet. I’m still in total denial of the fact that there’ll be no more strawberry-picking for little old me this year. But seeing as it IS an inevitable fact, we’d better get the most out of it, right? That’s why I think it’s time for some parsnip soufflé.

Hunting Greens in Dyrehaven

Admittedly these two pictures aren’t related in the way A & B or McDonald’s & self-loathing are, but still. They’re both results of yet another great episode of River Cottage, where Hugh Fearnley and his buddies went around their shire (or something else British) to gather goods for their dinner. Among other finds, they returned with some humongous oysters and a large bag of nettles that ended up in a pasta. Hence picture no. 2 above. That’s the result of our own little hunting trip in Dyrehaven north of Copenhagen about three weeks ago.

Fruit Leather – for Eating, not for Seating

This is a real mind-blower. With very little effort I’ve transformed two large apples and a plum into something weird and wonderful: Fruit leather. It’s a concept I was first introduced to a few weeks ago on one of my favourite food shows “River Cottage: Winter’s On The Way”, a Channel 4 programme that made its way to Danish television. And thank someone upstairs for that. It’s packed with great ideas for finding and cooking locally grown and cheap produce. But more about that in another post I have planned for you. Today is leather day!

Vanilla and Raspberry Marshmallows

Sometimes inspiration moves in mysterious ways and at other times it’s painfully obvious. In this case I went to the food festival EAT 2010 in Øksnehallen, where I caught Thomas Parry (the head pastry chef at Hotel d’Angleterre)  demonstrating some of his mad cooking skills. Among the many delicious things he guided his sugar-hungry audience through were some raspberry flavoured marshmallows. So I went home and pulled out ye olde Foodbeam recipe. The only changes needed were to remove one of the vanilla beans and to add a deciliter of mashed and deseeded raspberries after the gelatine. (But don’t forget to use pasteurised egg whites if you’re in Denmark). The result was a whole batch of fluffy and bouncy marshmallows with a delicate yet distinct raspberry and vanilla flavour. Nice! And the cocoa nibs on top added a nice dry chocolate twist to the classic. That and it made me feel even closer to Thomas. Do you think he would mind it if I called him Tom Tom?
