Cooking guidance for April 16th to April 17th 2021
All ovens are different and please use the suggested times below as a guide .
PLEASE NOTE WE HAVE HAD TO USE MORE OF THE SQUARE BOXES THIS WEEK - THE ROUND POTS WHICH ARE PERFECT FOR COOKING MEALS ARE IN SHORT SUPPLY.
THE MEATBALLS MAY BE BEST TRANSFERRED TO A SMALL CASSEROLE DISH - THIS IS BECAUSE THE SQUARE BOXES ARE NOT COMPLETELY LEAK PROOF.
Most we make are best heated in a saucepan. If some seem too thick just adjust accordingly .
Ensure all soups are HOT but don't let them boil !
Let the lamb broth simmer for a few extra minutes [ add a little water or stock, if need be...]
Prune and stout bread best warmed through oven for a few minutes....great toasted too.
Pop garlic bread [ foil wrapped] in a pre- heated oven for around 10-12 mins [160/180c] - tip - use the up turned brown soup lid
These are best eaten sooner rather than later because if they are stored in the fridge the croutes will begin to soften . Ideally, eat them once you return home !
Pate [ mackerel]
Remove from fridge for 15 mins before serving . Some of the sliced bread [ with fruit content, treacle] we provide are more risk of colouring sooner when toasting – Pop on a lower setting !
Brandade de Morue
Again best left out of fridge for up to 15 mins . Also would taste nice with a crisp baguette !
Leek and Cheddar Tart
Best warmed through the oven – pre-heated 150/160c for 5-8 mins
These will keep for a few days. Leave out for 30 mins plus prior to cooking.
Cook in a pre-heated oven on a baking sheet [ lid off - remove chorizo slices to begin with ...] ;
upper shelf 160-180c [ gas 5 ] up to 35/40 mins . May need to cover loosely with foil if colouring comes on too fast.
For the last 2/3 mins of cooking drape the chorizo slices over the meatballs.
Always ensure the dish is piping hot but leave to 'rest' for a few minutes prior to eating. Sprinkle with Grana Padano.
Pot of mash easiest to re-heat in a microwave [ on medium 2-3 mins stir halfway ] . Alternatively, heat in a pan carefully may be with the addition of a little milk / further butter .
Thai Fish Curry
Place brown pot , loosely covered, on a baking sheet & cook in a pre- heated oven 150-160 c for 30-40 minutes approx . Check after 20 minutes . Stir fish gently & remove cover/foil for final few minutes of cooking
Basmati rice pot can simply be re- heated in a microwave . About 1 minute on high – check & fluff up rice. Ensure the rice is piping hot .
Farro & Puy lentils
Similar to Polpette above but about 25-35 mins . Once hot, add slices of Ticklemore cheese and serve
Sticky Toffee Pudding
Up to 2 minutes in a microwave [medium] [ tip – put pot on a side plate to reduce sauce spillage ! ]
This is best eaten at room temp - leave out of the fridge for 20-30 mins; or even better still - warm gently in microwave just for 20-30 seconds on medium [ no more !]
Ice cream and sorbets
May benefit from a few minutes in the fridge to soften
Again, the Semi Freddo may need a few minutes in fridge to soften.
Supper menu and Sunday lunch
When you are collecting food to take home which is hot 'ready to go' [ or may be we are delivering to you ]
It is a good idea to pre-heat your oven on low to medium setting - just in case you need to 'hold' your food for a short period of time [ for example, you may have decided to have starters prior to your main courses ] Also you may need to travel a bit further to get home.
Alternatively, you can give the pots a quick boost in the microwave too.
If you like to eat off your own plates -always ensure they are nice and hot too !
Sunday roast gravy is always served in a pot – so you can arrange your food without any unnecessary mess !
And finally enjoy !
If you are unsure on anything- please do not hesitate to ring 01952 884667
Remember the pots are bio-degradable but can come in useful . If you are green fingered they make ideal seedling pots and for 'potting on' – these pots could then be planted straight into the ground . Perfect for this Springtime .
