Now I am not saying that this is what everyone will want to eat but I will say that everyone should try this salad.

Firstly cook your asparagus so it is slightly crunchy. Then your boiled eggs so that you still have that nice dark just cooked yellow in the yolk. Half the cherry tomatoes  pick your spinach and sliced the  red onion as thin as you can.
Now heat the water and bring that to the boil add the sugar and let that just dissolve in to the water.  Take that off the heat and add the cider vine…

THE GATE ISLINGTON WINS DISCOVERY CATEGORY OF THE LONDON RESTAURANT FESTIVAL AWARDS

Image
26 October 2012 The London Restaurant Festival has announced The Gate Islington as winner of the Discovery Award 2012. Adrian and Michael Daniel opened The Gate in Hammersmith 23 years ago. Their Indo-Iraqi-Jewish heritage informed vegetarian food was a far cry from the nut cutlets and leaden pulses that too often define this way of eating. This year, opposite Sadler’s Wells theatre, they opened a sleek, seductive second restaurant. Just five months after launch, The Gate Islington has become an award-winning restaurant, having won the Discovery Award at the London Restaurant Festival. Marina O’Loughlin, one of the judges says, “The Gate manages to avoid all the clichés of vegetarian eating. It doesn’t bother trying to make anything that apes meat, which makes sense if you don’t want to eat it in the first place. The Gate isn’t a good vegetarian restaurant; it’s simply a good restaurant”. The London Restaurant Festival Awards concentrate on the qualities that attract people…

Kothner Schusterrpfanne, the shoemakers pot

Image
This is a casserole that is more in keeping with the new varieties of pare cider, or Perry as we used to call them before tea marketing men realised if you call it cider you can charge twice as much. But that is a different story and this is a German stew that is good wholesome and hearty once more. 
You will need 1kg/2lb pork loin chops 3 large potatoes 3 large green ripe pears A good pinch of dried  marjoram A good pinch of dried dill A good pinch of  caraway seed 1 chicken stock cube  500ml/1pt water2 cups 2tbsp cornstarch Season well with salt and pepper .
Now you can use other cuts of pork but this cooks the best and quickest for a dish like this. Now I use fresh herbs normally but the recipes I have seen all favour dried herbs, at the end of the day it is down to you and what you have at hand. Also the herbs are infused in the stock so I suppose it does not really matter.
First, peeled and cut the potatoes into cubes then peeled and peeled, core, and cut the pears into …

Image
Now to be honest I have never really thought about it before until I began to look at doing a moth of German recipes how many kinds of dumplings there was in the world. It would be fair to say that tradition German cooking has a lot of dumplings. There are variations of dumplings from region to region, from house to house and from generation to generation. With or without filling , boiled or fried , in soup or in stews, sweet or savoury ,  as a garnish or as the main meal.  But they all have their own place in this section of October recipes so here are just a few dumpling recipes.

Now to make this you have to sort of make it in two stages so first dissolve the yeast in  the milk then add almost half of the flour and work that into the milk. Then leave it ove night cover and let it rise to double its size.
The next day add the egg yolks, sugar, butter melted, currants, vanilla, salt, enough and the remaining flour and mix into a light dough. Then cover and let this rise once more in a warm place like you would do bread dough.

Tony Cooper, the man who design and produced the first ever Bonzer® Can opener has passed away after a long term illness.  Recognised by many as one of the most important pieces of kit in the kitchen, the Bonzer can opener is estimated to have sold over 25 Million units since it launched over 70 years ago.

Image
Now this is a cake that will test you as it is not lie any normal cake that you might make, you could say that it is three cakes altogether in a ring . that is why it is called tree cake as when you cut threw it looks like a tree stump thin the rings , and king cake because it takes so long to make it is very special . Now as many of these recipes it is hard to define exactly who was first to make it. It is believed that it was invented in the German town of Salzwedel, or it could be a Hungarian wedding cake.  Or it could be as old as to go back to Ancient Greece and then Rome, as so many things can in European food. The only thing you can say that is for 200 years or more German bakers have been making this , originally over an open fire, on a spit. That is why it has a hole in the middle. Onr thing you can say is that Baumkuchen is one of the most popular pastries in Japan, where it is called baumukūhen. Apparently it was introduced to Japan by Karl Joseph Wilhelm Juchheim. He was …
