This dish is made with lots of seasonal produce including Jersey Royals and local asparagus. The secret however is the homemade pesto which is well making the effort to make. You can keep it in the fridge for up to a week. You can use it to make delicious pasta with pappardella ribbons. Mix with a little cream for a tasty sauce to serve with salmon or chicken. If you use vegetarian Parmesan today’s recipe will be suitable for vegetarians.
I think the last time I watched the Eurovision was as a student and coincidentally that was also when I visited Scandinavia. I can remember the beautiful scenery. The scarily expensive beer. Mountains of delicious seafood. Smorgasbords. Brunost, a creamy caramel flavoured whey cheese. And of course, the meatballs.
Grilled Lamb cutlets, New season Potatoes, Asparagus and Beernaise sauce. For me Spring conjures up a host of golden daffodils. New born foals in the fields. Sorry I got a little carried away there. Spring is the season of renewal and there are lots of fresh exciting things to cook and eat. This recipe includes four of mine so is pretty much a winner. Lamb, asparagus, delicious Jersey potatoes and a beer flavoured sauce. Yum.
You make traditional eggnog with egg yolks, cream, and milk. In addition there are one or more types of alcohol and spices. The boozy element can be rum, bourbon, brandy or sherry or a combination of these. George Washington served his guests as America’s first president with an eggnog made with rye whiskey, Jamaican rum and sherry. History does not record if they slept most of the rest of the day.
