What have I been watching?


We celebrated Pa's birthday (my dad) at our place today. We usually have my parents to lunch for their birthdays.

On the menu today were starters/nibbles of bruschetta with herbed feta topped with pepperonata then beef ragu on homemade papardelle and then for dessert .... croquembouche and a few chocolate eclairs for the not so fond of custard guests. Of course I didn't remember to take a photo until after the spun sugar had started to dissolve and it had been partially consumed. I halved this recipe and still only had enough custard to fill half of my individual balls. Only one burn and really very yum - worth a try for the WOW effect.

Absolutely tremendous! A real showpiece and I can just imagine how many WOW's you heard today.

Wish I was there too...do you think they'd post well to SE Queensland?

PS....I meant to answer your question.....you've been watching Masterchef!!

Melanie said...

Yep, I could answer that question too - profiteroles have been a recent feature at our house as well :) Yours look divine, yum!

Bek said...

IMPRESSED! Looks extremely delicious, especially since I had toast and vegemite for tea.

Oooh, it looks fabulously yummy!

Renee said...

WOW! I saw them make that on Masterchef, but I thought it would be way too hard... but you have got me thinking! It looks wonderful - well done!

I'll be expecting to see an application for the next series!!! they need to have a version of the show for parents who cook for kids as well as adults. My kids are still not keen on grown-up food, so I cook twice most nights (arghhhh).

Or maybe you'll be one of these new underground restaurants - an all new meaning for 13 Mimosa! I'd certainly be on the waiting list!!!

We're staying home these holidays so would love to catch up :)
