Amazingly, despite the frenetic nature of the festive period, fourteen of us have participated in this month’s challenge. Thank you all for taking the time to participate. Well I did say I was looking for something a bit challenging for December, but I hadn’t realised quite how difficult it was going to be for some of you. I now know that dates are not everyone’s favourite ingredient, so that makes some of these entries even more impressive. For the date lovers amongst you, there are some lovely festive treats to be found here. I would certainly have been happy with any (all) of these on my Christmas table. Once again, I am amazed by the diversity of what people have come up with.
Please do follow the links and take a look at the recipes everyone has put together on their blogs. Comments are always appreciated.
Hello, I’m Choclette. I’m a vegetarian recipe developer and writer from Cornwall. I have a sweet tooth and a passion for baking and chocolate. Welcome to my award winning blog. Here you will find nourishing home cooked food with a twist as well as foodie tales from my home county and beyond.
New made in Africa bean to bar chocolate from Madagascar. I tried two of the MIA @miaflavour bars : 75% dark chocolate and 65% dark chocolate with almond & coconut. Both have the distinctive buttermilk’s notes I associate with good Madagascan chocolate. Food with thought is the ethos and food with flavour is my verdict. Look out for them - definitely worth a try. (Ad)
Beetroot in many guises - homegrown too. Possibly one of the best starters I’ve ever had. Thank you @careysmanor_senspa for your interesting and varied menu. Goat’s cheese pannacotta with beetroot and more. #finedining #careysmanor #starter #fbcuk16 #vegetarianfood #vegetarianfoodshare #vegetarianfinedining #eatingout #fb (at Careys Manor Hotel & SenSpa)
It’s never too early for mince pies and these organic ones from @riverford were a tasty and welcome addition to my veg box last week. There’s plenty more festive food on offer too via the Riverford online shop. (Ad)
