    Default Cookery Thread

    This is a recipe from Aftermath which I think you really should try as it is delicious, I made another pot of it today so I can have for Sunday lunch but couldnt resist having a bowl of it just now.

    As you all know he is a mod here and really should have posted this himself.... (joke Steve m8) Its not hard to make and you really should try it.

    Ingredients
    1 tbsp olive oil
    knob of butter
    1 parsnip, peeled and chopped
    1 clove garlic, peeled and chopped
    a few thyme leaves
    a few rosemary stalks
    1 tbsp honey
    salt and freshly ground black pepper
    55ml/2fl oz double cream
    splash of hot chicken stock
    For the croutons
    1-2 tbsp olive oil
    2-3 slices of bread, cubed
    salt and freshly ground black pepper
    few rosemary stalks, chopped

    Method
    1. Preheat the oven to 220C/425F/Gas 7.
    2. Heat the olive oil and butter in a large ovenproof non-stick frying pan and saut? the parsnip for a few minutes.
    3. Add the garlic, thyme, rosemary, honey and seasoning and continue to heat for a further 5-6 minutes.
    4. Transfer to the oven and roast for 10-15 minutes.
    5. To make the croutons, heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the bread with the seasoning and
    rosemary for a few minutes on each side until crisp and golden.
    6. Remove the parsnips from the oven and place in a food processor with the cream. Blend until smooth,
    adding a splash of stock to thin.
    7. Return the soup to a pan and warm through. Transfer to a serving bowl and top with the croutons.

    Do you think we should have a section for recipes or is that a bit wifey?

    As you know most of the best cooks in the world are male.

    I know that some of the recipies on recipie sites are basically a waste of time. People have posted without testing and have missed out instructions or forgotten ingredients or even just made something up.

    Might be nice to have a few recipies that have been tried, tested and approved/rated.

    A lot of folkcan't even boil an egg and live off ready meals. Maybe they would be tempted to try making something if it had been rated as easy to make and tasty.

    I have tried a few of Aftermaths recipes and even though they probably don't turn out the way he would make them, they are very tasty.

    Not sure if we should have a section about food but a thread dedicated to recipes may work well. I had never even heard of Lamb Kleftiko but I used an aftermaths recipe and it was great.

    Many thanks for the compliments Jim.

    i have been thinking of doing something like this for a while now, its just getting my head round it, i might grab my original ones off you know where and start from there,

    Let me have a few days to think of the best way to do it, and see what peeps think or want.

    good idea though guys.

    maybe wifey was the wrong word to use . i do most of the cooking in our house, i am very much the modern man. and i would benefit loads from the recipes as i'm not very imaginative in the kitchen. i was meaning that it would be out of context with the main genre of the forum. but I'm willing to give it a shot, if theres enough interest, theres a very nice custom made addon that i can buy for the forum, yous would really like it. but if its just going to be a 'flash in the pan' idea then i have my reservations.

    That lamb recipe sounds interesting. Do you think you could post it Aftermath?

    Here it is: Remember it is Aftermaths recipe not mine.

    Lamb Kleftiko

    what you need for this is.

    4 lamb steaks
    1 large onion, chopped
    4 big tomatoes, sliced
    3 garlic cloves, chopped
    3 bay leaves
    1 tbsp fresh rosemary
    1 tbsp fresh oregano
    2 tbsp olive oil
    2 tbsp tomato puree
    Salt and black pepper
    8 medium potatoes, peeled and cut in half
    1 Pint of lamb stock


    1. Place steaks in a large baking tray then cover with all the other ingredients evenly.

    2. Pour over the stock to almost cover all the ingredients.

    3. cover the tray with tin foil and bake in the oven at 180 degrees for one and a
    half to two hours until the meat is completely tender.

    4. Serve with fresh vegetables or a Greek salad

    btw...I cheated, I didnt use fresh oregano even though he said to.... (I didnt have any)

    Guys i was never a chef or cook., I come from a family of good cooks, my mother worked in the food industry, my grandmother was a great cook, and my brother is a baker/confectioner and makes some fantastic food.

    I guess its in my blood.

    It started a few years ago, i had invited all our family to my house for a good feed and drink, i was approached by one of the guests, and asked if i wanted to go into partnership in a catering business, he was that impressed with my cooking. But i declined as i was worried about all the health and safety stuff that is needed when running a food business.

    So i just enjoy cooking at home , and enjoy it when i find a good dish out and invite peeps for a meal.

    I think in general people want to eat more healthy , and there is no better way than to do your own cooking, because you can in most cases substitute certain ingredients with more healthy things.

    I will keep an eye on this thread and hopefully if there is enough interest, i will certainly enjoy posting some new stuff.

    lamb klefiko mmm My compliments to the chef.

    Made it tonight and it was great. Easy to make and tasty.

    I did cheat a bit and use dried herbs but it still tasted fab.
    Thanks aftermath for the recipe and thanks to Jaffa for posting it..
