For my final recipe on this 100 day journey, I have the Spanish street food treat Churros which I've paired with Chocolate Orange Sauce. In my teenage years working in Spain, I first came across these being made in a barrel of oil. The vendor piped lengths of batter into the hot oil and drew out these churros which were then dusted in sugar and dipped in chocolate sauce. Enjoy this traditional Spanish snack in the April sunshine or any day that takes your fancy.
I'll be back soon with a brand new food journey ready to bring you more inspiration and recipes from The Tower House and of course ready to welcome guests at The Tower House once again.
Launching midweek/weekend 2 day cookery workshops and food demonstrations at The Tower House.
Over the past year, I've been receiving calls - and often a cry for help! - from people who are cooking for themselves and their families and want to make sure that they're making healthy choices while at the same time tempting and easy to put together.
I believe that food is medicine and we have never been more conscious of this than at this time when we have little choice but to cook for ourselves. It's time to make cooking less of a chore and begin a new relationship with food so that we can enjoy making ingredients work for us in a tempting, delicious and nourishing way regardless of dietary needs or choices.
I'm launching a series of midweek and weekend workshops with cooking demonstrations and my own brand of 'no-nonsense' food talks, beginning this summer. I'll be announcing dates as soon as we are given the go-ahead to safely return to small group gatherings. In the meantime you can register your interest in booking a Tower House workshop and food demonstration course for yourself, your family or your club etc.
Also check out The Tower House B&B Facebook and Instagram accounts for more details and news of dates etc.
Set the date for my Food Heroes series of conversations with Sue Nunn on her 'The Way It Is' show on kclr96fm at 5.20pm on Wednesdays each week and find new recipes on each week's theme here.
Thank you for your company over the past 100 days of this journey which has kept me occupied in the way I love most - creating new recipes with healthy, seasonal and nutritious food (with dietary requirement variations where possible). And thanks also to Mike and Emma for being the often enthusiastic 'guinea pigs' for a new recipe each day.
