For Monday 3rd October, Laura and Franca took a different approach to the dinner, asking the rest of the recipe club what were their “all time favourite” entrees, mains, desserts and party drinks. Each dish was inspired by the favourite of a different person.

Full details to be provided later.

Same But Different October 23, 2016

For possibly the first time, we ended up having two recipe clubs arranged for the same month, with this dinner on Monday 25th July. In honour of this unusual event, we decided the dinner would be inspired by the food from the previous dinner this month (Tofu). It wasn’t meant to be an exact copy, but the “same but different”. Andrew and Jacinta served the dishes and Andrew hosted in his newly renovated kitchen.

Entré

The first dish was Andrew’s take on Franca’s silken tofu soup – it was carrot, ginger and tofu soup.

Mains

The main course was inspired by Franca’s bean curd wraps and eggplant stirfry. Andrew served a corn flour flatbread (that unfortunately didn’t roll up) and an imam’s moussaka from Annabel’s Crabb’s cookbook.

Dessert

Inspired by Laura’s chocolate cheesecake and choc-chip cookies, Jacinta made a yummy chocolate, coconut and macadamia tart and choc-chip and tahini biscuits.
