    Quick Sunday Roast

    Butterfly the meat, I used pork and lamb (my wife does not eat red meat but she eats pork, chicken and fish) slash meat criss cross about an inch apart and an inch deep. Place meat on a roasting rack in a baking pan and rub in your favorite herbs, then squeeze on the juice of a lemon and drizzle with olive oil.
    Meanwhile preheat the oven to about 300c then move the fire to one side and let rest for about half an hour.
    I sit the meat tray on a couple of firebrick splits so as to lift it off the hot floor and to give the top of the meat a more intense heat, once the meat begins to char I move the pan off the splits to a cooler part of the oven. It only needs to cook for about 45mins pending on how you like it (I prefer it a little rare)
    Baked parsnip, French shallots and garlic, drizzle with a little olive oil and herds bake in a heavy based pan for about 15/20 mins.
    I also prepared some cauliflower in camembert white sauce, par boil and drain the cauliflower then pour over the sauce, make a bread crum crumble for the top and cook in the oven 10mins until golden.
    Seved with pumpkin mash and baby snow peas.

    Time taken was only 2 hours from lighting the fire to serving.

    Wine; Gramp's 2006 Shiraz

              Garlic Prawns in Spanish Tapas Dishes

              An alternative to using cast iron ramekins

              I just bought two of these Tapas dishes and wanted to try them out in the oven.
              The instuctions suggest temp up 250c and I wanted to use them at 350c/400c so I warmed them up by sitting them in the entry of the oven before I put the prawns in and put them in the oven.
              The result was good and much easier to clean than the cast iron, I do think though that you can cook a lot hotter in the cast iron ramekins.
              They will be good for cooking a lot of things that don't need so intense heat like mornay etc.

              Ingrediants the same as when I used the cast iron ramekins.

              I also made naan bread for the first time.

                Laucke Bakers Flour Bread

                Tried out Laucke bakers flour from South Australia to make bread for sandwiches.
                I normally don't make plain white bread but I wanted to taste and test the flour.
                I used only flour, salt, water and a little IDY making a biga to start.
                This is an exellent flour I have used it to make pizza dough with great success and now I am pleased to say it is just as good for bread.

                  Lamb Curry Slow Cooked

                  Indian Lamb Curry, cubed (leg) lamb, ghee, onion, garlic, bay leaves, curry leaves, coriander, cumin, chlli, ginger, turmeric, paprika, yoghurt and garam masala.
                  When I went to put the curry in the WFO the temperature was 155c which was to hot, so I loaded in a wheelbarrow of firewood (that needed to dry) to pull the temp down, I then put the curry in with the wood while I went to work for the day, hopping that the curry would not over cook.
                  I left the curry in the WFO for 10 hours it went in at 155c and came out at about 85c, the firewood took the heat out enough not to burn the curry.
                  The result!!! it was beautifull meat was really tender and flavorsome.

                  Served with boiled rice, mango chutney, minted yoghurt, poppadoms and reheated nann that I had made previously.

                  Wine; Semillon
