  • Rhubarb, almond and elderflower loaf cake

    • chriscooks on May 01, 2021

      This has good flavor but the texture isn't going to please everyone. I used yellow fine-ground cormeal instead of polenta; it did not cook completely and thus added a gritty texture. The texture didn't detract from the cake though I think it would have benefited from being slightly less prominent. I don't know if polenta would have behaved differently; maybe instant polenta or instant grits would have cooked up more thoroughly. Or maybe give the cornmeal about 10 min in a pot with 50g of the rhubarb to soften it up a bit, then add that before the other dry ingredients go in. I think the coconut was unnecessary; next time I would leave it out and increase the almond meal and flour. As noted in the recipe, the top got quite dark before the middle was cooked. All the rhubarb I added was chopped, rather than running some stems along the base of the pan; doing that would probably have made the base even more wet than it was for me.

  • Radicchio, pomegranate and Graceburn salad

    • Hansyhobs on January 20, 2022

      Used a cheddar because that's all I had in, a crumby cheese would have been much better. I'm not a huge fan of bitter salads but the dressing has a lot of sweetness so I found this well balanced for my personal preference. I used blood orange instead of pomegranate seeds
