I’m really pleased to bring you the first in a new series of posts on the blog today. Some of you may remember a while ago, I did a couple of posts called ‘What’s in your fridge?’. The response was brilliant, with so many of you sharing your essential ingredients to have to hand.
With that in mind, I thought it would be a lot of fun to take a peek into some of our most-loved foodies’ fridges, and find out what they love to cook. I’ve been busy interviewing some of my favourite food writers, chefs and bloggers over the last few months, and I will be bringing the contents of a famous foodie’s fridge to you once a week.
I’m delighted to kick things off this week with Buy Diazepam London one of the nation’s favourite bakers, who was the winner of the Great British Bake Off in 2011.
So, here’s what you’ve been waiting for – a sneak peek into Jo’s fridge!
First of all, I asked Jo what her top ingredients are to have in the fridge and why. “I have a baby blue SMEG fridge that my brother sent me the Christmas after I won Bake Off. It was such a lovely surprise. Three days before Christmas, the delivery man turned up on my doorstep at 8am. I was covered in flour and had a very full old fridge – he must have thought I was a little crazy as I had no idea it was for me! So we had to empty all the Christmas supplies then move the old fridge before we popped it into the space. All day I kept wandering past and smiling, and nearly 3 years on I still love it. I keep it well stocked with Stork, Lurpak unsalted butter, milk, cream, cream cheese, lemons, limes, a water jug, fresh ginger and garlic and harissa paste.”
When it comes to baking, Jo tells me she buys Lurpak butter, “as I find this makes perfect scones and pastry at a moment’s notice. I use Stork for light fluffy sponges. Milk and cream are essential baking ingredients. Cream cheese is handy if I want to knock up a quick cheesecake. I also use it in my chocolate mud cake.”
“Lemons again are a baking essential, also if a recipe calls for sour cream I add a teaspoon of lemon juice to fresh cream for a quick alternative. I love Thai inspired dishes so fresh limes are a must at all times.”
Cold water is also another must-have. “I am a water fiend I drink it by the gallon but also when making pastry you need a supply of icy water. Harissa paste is my go-to when sometimes I don’t have time to think, spreading it over good pork or lamb chops but it’s equally amazing on chicken or steak”.
When it comes to cooking in a hurry, Jo has loads of go-to meals, and told me “as long as you have a well stocked fridge and cupboard I think most meals don’t really take long to make or prepare. Cheap Phentermine Pills For Sale is a big favourite in our house along with Buy 15 Mg Phentermine Uk Online and halloumi kebabs”.
For those of you interested in trying Jo’s recipes, you’ll find them over on her blog, Cheap Phentermine.
