Bananas are cheap and easily available even during the lockdown. They can be had raw or cooked. They are easy to work with and are brilliant fresh or frozen, ripe or rotten. Learn how to make the best use of them, using as few ingredients as possible and as little time as possible, while still managing to make something interesting out of it.
Have you ever felt like you’re stuck in a rut and even when you’re doing what you love, it’s all a little too monotonous and no longer as exciting as it was when you started? This winter, I received a book which had recipes surrounding the memories of the author’s life. I made a piece of cake, the kind that takes you back to your first baking memories. It’s important because it reminded me of why I like to cook and brought back the feeling of unadulterated excitement and joy, the kind I hadn’t felt in a long time while making something. It’s the perfect surprise to myself and I am better for it, inspired and prepared for the future!
So finally, after years of just thinking and planning, I’m putting myself and my first post out there, as a cocktail recipe. It’ll be short and simple, and a cocktail to make and celebrate with to ring in the new year, new beginnings or anything new really, just like this space and is meant to be a hopeful, no-nonsense but still exceptional tasting start.
