This was a late fun birthday gif off a friend…
It’s a jelly sweet pizza. It was given very tongue in cheek as a few years back I have one to a friend. The one I gave however was a margarita pizza topped with jelly sweets. We baked the pizza and the melted jellys ruined the oven. Fail! 😆
Two days ago it was my 30th birthday and I was lucky enough to visit Tom Kerridge’s 2 Mitchillin star restaurant, The Hand and Flowers in Marlow.
For the starter I opted for the Duck liver parfait with orange chutney and toasted brioche and Gav went for the Salt bake swede and haggis tart with crispy lamb, chantilly de cherve and wiltshire truffle.
The duck was without a doubt the bast starter I have ever had! It was amazingly creamy with such a delicate taste, I could have eaten it all night and left amazingly satisfied.
I enjoyed the Essex lamb bun with sweet breads and salsa verde and Gav went for the Half beer roasted chicken with caramelized cauliflower, sweet garlic puree, oak gravy and a mushroom crunch.
We ordered chips also….big mistake, we had no room for chips!
To wash it all down we drank a bottle of Pheasants tears with was dry and unfiltered. It has a light amber, pink color and a deep smokey taste, I will certainly be looking for this to add to my stock.
A great night with a relaxed atmosphere.
This week I made a baileys birthday cake for my mums birthday. Covered in a baileys cream cheese and filled with a fresh cream and raspberry filling it resulted in a terribly indulgent delight 😊
Even decorated with a homemade chocolate touch.
