I hope you have enjoyed our culinary trip this year and have got to try a few of the recipes too, it’s been a real journey for me and I have learnt a lot about other places I wouldn’t have had I not started this project -researching ingredients, cuisines, methods of cooking, and traditions from around the World.

 

Through our shared love of food, I also hope FeastforFamine has helped raise awareness of the struggles children face day to day around the World.

Together we have raised £1,182.34, which has already started to help provide a better future for children in the UK and overseas and with the monies raised we have helped support the work needed to improve the education, health and rights of children everywhere, so a huge thank you to everyone who has shown their support to my year of fundraising.

October Recipe Review – From Canada to Hungary

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Hi All,

So it really feels like autumn now, brighter mornings and darker nights, a slight chill in the air and the autumnal colours starting to show.  I love autumn and look forward to embracing the changes at this time of year and I hope my recipes for have reflected this, so let’s look back over Feastforfamines’ October recipes…

First stop and a place very close to my heart was Sri Lanka for the Inspired by Sri Lanka – Prawn and Yellow Lentil Curry with Cheats Pol Sambola, I really loved the earthiness the roasted spice mix added to this curry along with the freshness of the Pol Sambal, you could keep even omit the prawns in this recipe and make it vegan and I think it would still taste just as good.

Next stop was a burst of colour with the Inspired by Hungary – Orange Pepper and Paprika Soup, perfect for warming you up on a cold day, whilst making sure you get a good dose of much needed vitamin C.

Long walks and lazy brunches are some of the things I like to do in autumn, as well as looking out for seasonal produce and pears always make me think of autumn so created this: Inspired by France – Healthier Baked French Toast with Pears, Walnuts and Honey, a healthier alternative on a French classic, you could also use other fruits such as apples, plums etc and add a dollop of creme fraiche for extra deliciousness.

Last stop in October was to Canada for the Inspired by Canada – Maple Syrup and Pecan Candy Apples, a twist on the classic Halloween/Bonfire Night treat!

September Recipe Review -From Korea to Kenya

 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

Hi All,

So how was your September? Settled back in to work and school? Or just enjoying the last of the long days before the clocks go back…Whatever you did I hope you enjoyed my tasty recipes and even got to try a few.  Let’s just have a quick recap before moving full swing into Autumn!

First stop in September was a trip to Egypt for the Inspired by Egypt – Courgette and Chickpea Salad with Dukkah, an easy and delicious vegan salad with bags of flavour, I am still sprinkling my ‘Dukkah’ too!

Next up Inspired by Korea – Vegan Asparagus and Ginger Pancakes, another vegan treat and a chance to use some of the amazing combinations I picked up from a Korean cooking course in the summer.  I choose to make a vegan option but for this recipe, but please do try with other ingredients such as prawns and shredded chicken.

Still clinging onto the idea of summer, I decided to cool things down with Inspired by Guatemala – Coffee, Banana and Chocolate Condensed Milk Ice Cream, super easy and as well as an after dinner treat can be added to different milk of your choice to make a really yummy iced coffee.

Starting to feel to strain of cooking several meals a day, I next wanted to make something that I could use as tasty lunch leftovers, with the added benefit of being filling and healthy, so I created the Inspired by Jordan – Oven Baked Fragrant Rice with Crispy Chickpeas and a Parsley Lemon and Cucumber Sauce.

Lastly in September, I wanted to get back into baking using old ideas combined with new flavours, I think I hit the spot with the Inspired by Kenya – Ginger Drizzle Sponge Cake,so much so I have been asked to make it again for a friend.  Really great with a cuppa, coffee or to be honest just on its own!

Inspired by Sri Lanka – Prawn and Yellow Lentil Curry with Cheats Pol Sambola

Luckily the oven roasted spice mix makes enough for two curries, as you will want to make this again and again! Filling, earthy flavours with the added zing of the ‘Cheats Pol Sambola’ to really tickle your tastebuds.

Serves: 2, or 4 if you add rice

Prep: 30 mins
Cook: 30 – 40mins

Ingredients: For the Sri Lankan Spice Mix, 1 tsp. black peppercorns, 1 tsp. cumin seeds, 2 tsp. mustard seeds, 2 tsp. fennel seeds, 2 tsp. coriander seeds

For the lentils: 1 cup of red or yellow lentils, 3 cups of cold water, 2 cloves, 1 cinnamon stick

For the curry: 1 can of full fat coconut milk, 12 – 16 King Prawns (depending on size and how many you want!), 2 garlic cloves, 1 thumb sized piece of ginger peeled, 1 red chilli, 1 tsp of coconut oil, (can use vegetable oil), 1 tsp. tumeric

For the ‘Cheats Pol Sambola’: 1/2 small red onion finely sliced, 1.1/2 tbsps. of natural desiccated coconut, 1/2 tsp. of dried chilli flakes (more of less depending on how much heat you like), juice of 1/2 a lime, 1 tsp. fish sauce.

Method:

  1. First pre-heat your oven to 200F, place all of the spice mix spices in a roasting tin and roast for 8-10 minutes until starting to brown
  2. Rinse your lentils and add to a pan with 3 cups of cold water, the cloves and cinnamon stick
  3. Bring to the boil and then simmer for 10-15mins until softened, drain and remove the cloves and cinnamon stick and put to one side until ready to use
  4. Now make your ‘Pol Sambola’, by mixing all ingredients together and then placing in the fridge until ready to use
  5. Once your spices have cooled a bit give them a good bash in a pestle and mortar or a quick blitz in a food processor
  6. Heat the coconut oil in a large pan and add the garlic, chilli, turmeric and ginger, fry for a few minutes then add half of your spice mix, save the rest in an air tight container for another time!
  7. Fry for a further 2 – minutes before adding the cooked lentils and coating well in the mixture
  8. Add the coconut milk and simmer for 10mins
  9. Add your prawns and cook for a few minutes longer to heat through
  10. Serve with ‘Pol Samba’ and enjoy!
Three decades of civil war and the tsunami in 2004, have left the children of Sri Lanka extremely vulnerable with many of them still suffering from both emotional and physically scars. The tsunami killed tens of thousands of people and flattened towns and villages. Save The Children have since rebuilt 21 schools, safe places for children to play and provided emergency aid and education to 130,000 children. They are also working with local organisations and government to reunite children with their families and develop Early Children Care and Development programmes to give children a better future.

Inspired by Korea – Vegan Asparagus and Ginger Pancakes

I was lucky enough recently to attend a vegan Korean cooking course with the amazing chef Da-Hae West, (check her out here https://dahaewest.com), which gave me a lot of inspiration as well as making my own Kimchi! One of the things I got to make was a vegan pancake, which is super easy, super delicious and can be adapted to suit your tastes, adding things like prawns, chicken, more chillies, no chillies it’s up to you!

I have made my own version here using lots of asparagus and ginger accompanied by two dips that I think work really well, one vegan and one full on mayo! If you have a go at making this version, or your own, get in touch as I would love to hear about your creations!

Serves: 2 as a main, 4 – 6 as a starter

Prep: 20mins

Cook: 6 – 8 mins for each pancake

Ingredients: For the pancakes: 20 asparagus spears, 250g self raising flour, 375ml ice cold sparkling water, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 chilli thinly sliced, (more if you like the heat), 1 clove or garlic minced of thinly sliced, 1 thumb sized piece of ginger minced or thinly sliced, 4 tbsp. of oil for frying

For the Sesame Dipping Sauce: 2 tbsp. rice wine vinegar, 1 tbsp. sesame oil, 1 thinly sliced piece of ginger, 1 tsp. sesame seeds, 1/2 tsp. brown sugar

For the Chilli Mayo: 1 tbsp. rice wine vinegar, 1tbsp. mayo, 1 red chilli thinly sliced with seeds if you like the heat.

Method:

  1. First remove the woody ends from your asparagus
  2. Then add to boiling water and boil vigorously for 2 mins
  3. Drain and plunge into cold water and set aside while you make your dips and batter
  4. To make the Chilli Mayo, add the sliced chilli to the rice wine vinegar and set aside until ready to serve
  5. For the Sesame Dipping sauce, mix all of the ingredients together and set aside until ready to use
  6. Mix all of the ingredients together for the pancake except the asparagus so that it’s combined well but no need to over mix
  7. Heat 1 tbsp. of oil in a pan now add half of your pancake batter and pop 10 of the asparagus spears on top of the mixture so that they melt down into the mixture
  8. Cook for 3 – 4 minutes on one side until you start to see air pockets form on the top
  9. Now turn your pancake over (you can flip if you are brave, or use a spatula like me!), add some more oil if you notice that the pan is dry and continue to cook on the other side for 3 – 4 minutes, longer if necessary, you want it to be crispy but not burnt
  10. Repeat the same for the second pancake with the remaining mixture and asparagus
  11. Once both of your pancakes are ready, add the finishing touch to your Chilli Mayo by adding 1 tbsp. of mayo and mixing well
  12. Enjoy!

July Recipe Review – From New Zealand to Myanmar

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Hi All!

So how is Summer treating you so far? Exams, deadlines? Or vacations and new destinations? Whatever you are doing I hope it is filled full with sunshine, picnics, BBQs and alfresco dining!

The beginning of July marked the six month anniversary of the Feastforfamine journey and as a little bonus recipe I shared Nan’s Jam Tart, a recipe I remember fondly from my childhood and now share with my daughter, it’s so easy but so tasty and full of memories for me!

First stop in July took us to Mexico, to cool down with the Inspired by Mexico – Avocado and Cucumber Gazpacho, a really easy lunch or refreshing light starter. Next we went to Vietnam to explore a different take on the Banh Mi, the famous baguette normally filled with pork, pate, mayo and pickles. I wanted to try and create a different version that didn’t cut any of the flavour but instead offered a vegetarian option so created the Inspired by Vietnam – Aubergine Buns with Veggie Pickles and Spiced Mayo.

I love summer cooking and food, but often find it difficult to think of desserts that compliment lighter eating, so during the warmer months when entertaining, I will always make at least one pavlova as it’s light but sweet and you can add any flavour combinations you like, I definitely think I have found a winning combo with the Inspired by New Zealand – Orange, Honey and Macadamia Nut Pavlova, and I would also love to have your favourite pavlova creations too, feel free to contact me here Contact, and I will have a go and making some of them before the summer is over.

Next we went to Libya for an African twist on pasta, (https://feastforfamine.blog/2019/07/22/inspired-by-libya-spiced-orange-chicken-with-coriander-and-pinenut-pasta/) a zesty chicken dish that does not waste any of the juices from the chicken, as it drizzles down onto the coriander and pine nut pasta, great served with a fresh green salad.

Finally in July, we went to Myanmar for Pork and Mango Coconut Noodles (https://feastforfamine.blog/2019/07/29/inspired-by-myanmar-pork-and-mango-coconut-noodles/), you can use up any other left over meats you have from your Sunday Roast, but they have a saying in Myanmar ‘Of all the fruit the mango is the best, of all the meat, the pork is the best and of all the leaves lahpet is the best’, and I certainly agree with that for this recipe, the pork and mango really are the best combo…I hope you do too!
