My freezer defrosted itself on Friday and refused to start working again until the morning (Tuesday). Worse still I only realised it wasn't working as it should when I opened the door to chuck a load of produce in. So I currently have a fridge stuffed full of both fresh food and food I salvaged, and a sink and sides covered with dirty pans from cooking up anything I could.
In other news I went to a rather lovely vegan pot luck and celebrated International vegan junk food day. It's certainly been a weekend full of food.
Clockwise from top right of this blurry photo:
- Cashew cheese
- Figs baked with agave syrup and black pepper. So subtle yet so full of flavour.
- Fennel flatbreads – these were supposed to be crackers but just aren't crunchy.
- Apple, celery and radish – garnish for cashew cheese laden flat breads
I'm preparing for a trip to Venice so this had been great. It's easy to read, is giving me a wonderful picture of how Venice with it's Doges and concil of ten came to be and it has very good pictures. I must finish it before I go!
