On Monday 6th October, Andrew hosted the dinner on the theme of the languishing cookbook, together with Laura. The idea was that dishes should come from a cookbook that has been languishing, unused on the shelf.

Mains

Andrew discovered some Indian recipes from Poh Ling Yeow’s book “Poh’s Kitchen”. His main course included pistacchio chicken korma with tomato
rice and papadums, with a side of tandoori broccoli.

Dessert

Laura’s desserts came from The Great Australian Bake-Off cookbook. She made Jonathan’s Chocolate Wheel Biscuits and Jonathan’s Strawberry Creme Brulee Tart.

Kerri finished the meal with a pull-apart style cinnamon dumpling pudding. There was also an idea of including a dragon’s beard pulled candy, but sadly it didn’t make it.
