This week brings two big events. The first one will be a trip to the hospital, (not me!) but my loved one who goes under tomorrow to have his wisdom teeth removed. Therefore, it’s safe to say I’ll be blogging about soups, jelly, ice-cream and stews for the remainder of the week, getting excited aren’t you?
The second event is a one night only ‘Live’ Theatre event, with my favourite culinary genius of all time Heston Blumenthal. I’m not sure as to what will be happening, but it’s a fair certainty he’ll be cooking, entertaining and hopefully letting us in on the secrets to being a Michelin superstar chef. Sadly as I live on the other side of the world here, it’s no.1 on my Foodie Bucket list, so fingers crossed I’ll get there one day to sample their fine food in the UK (note to self, buy lottery ticket)
Here’s a little more on The Fat Duck and a few inklings into the creative genius behind the restaurant!

Which brings me to the next question…have you ever wondered what a Three Michelin star chef might cook at home? Here’s a little intro by the man himself to his latest cookbook Heston Blumenthal at Home
In honor of this great chef and the fact it’s my (sweetheart’s last solid meal for the next few days) I endeavored to tackle no less than three recipes from his cookbook. The results were greatly appreciated and I hope you’ll forgive that I’m trialling these for the first time so they’re not picture perfect, but hey, you know what they say about practice…
Now we love our chippies in this house, but why cook them once when you can thrice cook these beauties! They’re described as having a “crisp, glass like interior,” yes please!!!
And lastly but not least, a beautiful dish, so lovely I was surprised by its simplicity too. Vanilla butter & Sea Perch. Vanilla butter & Seafood is my new vice!!!
Hope you enjoyed my little experiments and stay-tuned for more recipes coming your way from Hospital & Heston week soon!
