Slow Living: A Practical Workshop

A day back in August was the day I almost peed myself with excitement as I'd booked into a the Slow Living:  A Practical Workshop being hosted by one of my favourite food styling photographers....Beth Kirby of Local Milk.

Do you remember?

The Chocolate Truffle: A French Invention

The Chocolate Truffle:  A French invention.  

Need I say more?  

According to legend, the chocolate truffle was accidentally created in the kitchen of French culinary giant Auguste Escoffier during the 1920's where his apprentice poured the hot cream into a bowl of chocolate chunks instead of the sugared eggs.  The resulting bumpy, lopsided ball resembled, to Auguste's mind, the luxurious truffles from the French Perigord region.

Neighbours + Comfort Food !

I really think I should move to the country.  Far, far away from anything resembling a neighbour. 

Although knowing my luck, I'd still attract the Ferrel's.

You know who I'm talking about...those neighbours that have no courtesy for those around them... the ones whose conversations can be heard word for word ALL night.

It's official. I'm a magnate!
