Here is a quick summary of the food that I have eaten and the foodie things that I have bought recently.
I had been saving this bottle of Hattingley Valley English sparkling wine for quite a while, no occasion just seemed important enough to drink it. On New Year's Eve we thought that now is the time and shared the bottle. It was so wonderful! I tend to get headaches from Prosecco, but this dry drink was something else, and it's local, so what's not to like!
Let's stay with drinks for a moment. Recently I have been enjoying Candy Kaiser beer by Brewdog. It's brewed as the Düsseldorf style of Altbier and is quite pleasant dark beer.
I brought many foodie things with me again from Finland, like these dried mushroom powder soups, basically just add water, simmer and the soup or sauce is done. I may post more about these later. And again I couldn't resist such cute tea tins.
I can't even remember where I bought these Swedish crispbreads, as they have been a while already in my cupboard. During my recent dry cupboard inspection they came up, and I decided to eat them. They were very nice with cheese.
Earlier this month I celebrated my third blogiversary and baked this lime and white chocolate cake with green jellies. I forgot to post a slice picture in the actual post, so here is one now.
This season is perfect for sprouts, so I have been cooking quite a few flower sprout and brussels sprout dishes.
I have also been cooking Middle Eastern food again. I think it's nice in the winter. Here's roasted cauliflower with Arabian nutty rice, both recipes previously published on the blog.
This Posh cheese on toast product is a lovely addition to regular cheese on toasts adding some extra flavour and making them a bit more interesting.
What has been going on in your kitchen recently? Have you tried any nice new products?
