Still under the influence of Ottolenghi

 Raspberry and rose syrup roulade

Raspberry and rose syrup roulade

busy bee Bronwyn's birthday and I want to make a cake. Not my forte that's for sure.

I refer to my Ottolenghi recipe book and there's a photo of this amazing looking roulade. I do remember Bronwyn is partial to a roulade, so I read all the ingredients. Yes I have them all, even some rose water syrup, a gift from the wonderful Cathy, alias Captain Kirk! If I stuff up the meringue base I'm not to fussed as the chookies produce four eggs a day. I manage to put it all together and viola!! It looks pretty good.

 Happy birthday to you.  

Happy birthday to you.  

Next week it is Tash's birthday so I'm wondering what Ottolenghi inspired dish I'll make for her.  

It will probably have to have eggs in it.

And now to my delight SBS Food have discovered Yotam Ottelenghi. The series is five years old, but at least he is getting more exposure to an Australian audience.

I now have a tv date every Friday night. ❤️
