Food so far. Please shout if I'm going to poison you.

If you're down as a day girl, I'll assume that you are only there for Saturday lunch unless you've said otherwise - please edit your signup post if necessary so that I know how many to cook for. And unless you're a veggie I'll assume you're eating the meat dish.


Friday Night
Coconut and sweet potato chicken with rice
Veggies:Roast vegetable cassoulet

Saturday Lunch
Leek & sweet potato soup
Broccoli, leek and cauliflower soup
Bread, cheese dips etc.


Saturday Canapes and cocktails
Bring along that odd bottle of kumquat liqueur that’s been festering in the cupboard since 1989. I’ve got limoncello infusing in the kitchen.


Saturday Dinner
Sausage, kale and flageolet bean casserole

Veggies:
Balsamic Onion tarts

Root vegetable gratin
Chocolate Mousse

Sunday Lunch
Baked potatoes, cheese, baked beans, leftovers


Breakfast
Bread/toast, butter, jam, orange curd if I make some, juice, tea, coffee


There will be drinks available at all time to help yourself to.

Oh I don't disagree, I was just mocking Katherine for her kale obsession.

Sausage, Kale and Flageolets

Broccoli, Cauliflower and Leek Soup
Nice with some cheese crumbled into it, and I suspect a splash of cream although I didn't do that.

Roast vegetable cassoulet

Tentenary Biscuits were from a book called Super-Cute Cookies.
250g plain flour
125g self raising flour
250g butter, at room temp
125g golden caster sugar
1 egg yolk (I tend to use the whole egg)
1 tsp vanilla extract

Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Beat in the egg yolk and vanilla until fully incorporated.
Add the flour and mix to a dough. Do not overwork.
Put the dough in a food bag and chill for an hour.
Roll out the dough and cut out.
Chill on a baking sheet for 30 minutes. This helps to stop them spreading on the oven. Meanwhile pre heat over to Gas 6/400F/200C/180C Fan.
Bake for 12-16 minutes until golden.

The spelt version were just spelt flour (Dove's Farm) in place of both flours. You'll need to add just over half a teaspoon of baking powder too as it's not self raising.

I iced them with Royal icing - box next to the icing sugar, purple instead of pink. I made it up with Seville orange juice instead of water.

You can make a good chocolate version of the biscuit if you replace some of the flour with cocoa.


Coconut and sweet potato chicken
Came from Good Housekeeping via my aunt about five years ago.
1 bunch coriander
chicken breasts
olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 lb sweet potato, in small dice
3 tbsp mild curry paste
400ml can coconut milk (I used coconut cream, a carton should do it)
400ml passata
125ml chicken/veg stock
lime wedges and basmati rice to serve.

Chop the coriander stalks, fry in the oil. Add the onion and sweet potatoes and fry for another 10 mins.
Add the curry paste and fry for another 3-4 minutes.
Add coconut milk, stock and passata. Simmer until sweet potato is getting softer. Add the chicken and simmer until cooked - 15-20 mins.
Garnish with the coriander leaves, chopped and lime wedges.
Serve with rice.

The soup was wonderful! You had, I think, made it slightly spicy - was that a hint of curry powder added at the beginning? Whatever it was, it was gorgeous!

Oh sorry, yes there was. It was an ad hoc addition as we had the end of the jar. About a tablespoon of Patak's mild curry paste added and fried for a minute or two before the liquid goes in. This was for that giant pot mind, so probably less at home.
