Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Laurie Davies' 10-minute risotto

    • Jane on March 08, 2012

      I don't know how this could possibly be called a 10 minute risotto. Cooking the orzo alone took 20 mins and then there is the prep and cooking of the vegetables before that for 10 mins. So call it a 30 minute risotto. It was nice enough as a weeknight dinner but nothing very special.

  • Chorizo, potato and parsley tortilla

    • Agaillard on May 02, 2017

      This was nice and tasty though not extraordinary either :) Only issue was I used too big a pan, I would advise to use a deep and small-ish pan to achieve a better texture, and maybe up the amount of onions and potatoes a bit.

    • Agaillard on February 02, 2020

      I tried again. Used suggested amount of potatoes, chorizo, half an onion and 3 eggs, because I wanted to use up the potatoes and chorizo and the pan I wanted to use was smaller than the recipe suggested (and since my pan last time was too large...). That was really nice, even though I did mess up the pan turning thing :) The texture and depth was much better than last time too. I must also remember to cut smaller potato slices, and not cut them lengthwise. Anyway, live and learn :)

  • Herb dressed turnips

    • Agaillard on November 13, 2020

      Made for lunch yesterday.... Subbed capers for minced gherkins and served with baguette toasts with good ham/butter... The turnips were deceptively simple to make with very little ingredients... but they were excellent .. The parsley and garlic worked their usual wonderfulness ... Really nice and tasty. Will make again and maybe try to toast the turnips a little bit more on the pan step

  • Caramel chip banana cake

    • Agaillard on April 22, 2016

      Really original, tasty and pretty :) Always has loads of success :)
