All the peaches were hard so I decided to make Rossinis instead of Bellinis.
A Rossini is strawberry purée and prosecco plus a little sugar.
Griddled prawns with garlic and parsley butter.
Chocolate biscuit cake
300g dark chocolate
150g golden syrup
a 250g packet of gingernuts, roughly crushed
100g packet of dried cherries
80g chopped dried apricots
60g chopped almonds
Spread into a square or rectangular tin such as a traybake tin.
Press down with a potato masher and refrigerate.
Cut into squares when firm and store in the fridge.
Of course you can use any nuts or dried fruit you like, or indeed any biscuits.
Again. After I watched this for the first time in May I promised myself I'd watch it when they all went camping. In the meantime I read the book. I enjoyed the book immensely finding it accessible and engaging. Having Richard Armitage to visualise as John Thornton certainly added to the enjoyment. By the way, the tv ending is better than the book ending. If you've seen it you will know what I mean.
The peace and the quiet.
