Moving on up…or sideways…maybe…

Just a little heads up….I’ve kinda moved my blog to:

jessdowse.wordpress.com

it’s more of a profile of everything I’ve ever done.

Going to start blogging about my documentary on there sooner or later….

so check it out!


Unintended Irony

So I haven’t been my ironic cook self lately…and that’s for two reasons:

1. As my last video shows….I’ve been busy becoming a kick-ass journo…or something to that affect!

2. I have….shock horror…began to cook in an un-ironic way!

Granted it’s not always good…but I’ve started just cooking…and enjoying it! I don’t want to be bad anymore. I want to learn. I want to be able to host dinner parties in my New York loft apartment!….

However….I still have a long way to go!

Here is a little example of the rubbish I served up the other day….


What This Week?

Christmas Special!

Ok, so I’m back to taking your suggestions….more fool me!

I am now at home in a significantly larger kitchen, complete with spangily, shiny equipment just waiting for my abuse!

So do your best…..

I want cake ideas, trifles, sponges, waffles topped with meringue whips and chocolate droppings…something along those lines!!

Test me! Go ahead!

Tonight I Will Be Making…

The Recipe Book

Preparation method…proposed by James:

Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan. Add the green curry paste and sugar and cook over a fairly high heat for about a minute, stirring with the lemongrass paste. Reduce the heat slightly and stir in the chicken pieces and lime leaves or zest until coated in the paste. Add the chilli and cook for a couple of minutes. Add the coconut milk and soy sauce and bring to a simmer, cooking for 25-30 minutes until thickened slightly. Stir in the coriander and lime juice. Check for seasoning, adding more soy sauce if needed.

The curry is now best left to sit for a few minutes so the sauce becomes creamier.

Serve with your choice of rice
