Masterclass with Cherish Finden and Afternoon Tea - Langham Hotel London

Earlier on this year, Mövenpick Ice Cream set 15 food bloggers the challenge of creating their own ice cream sundae recipe for the chance to win an exclusive two-hour masterclass with the Langham’s Head Pastry Chef Cherish Finden, followed by afternoon tea for two at The Palm Court.  Well I couldn't believe it when I was told I'd won!

 

 So this Monday it was off to The Langham Hotel in London to meet Cherish for the Masterclass, now anyone will tell you I don't do pastry and cakes simply because I can't.  I just don't have the patience required.

Roast Chicken with Orange and Black Pepper Baste

I was recently sent a lovely Seasonal Box from Knorr full of goodies for the perfect Christmas dinner including new Knorr Gravy pots to create tasty gravy without any fuss.

Roast Chicken with Orange and Black Pepper Baste

The box came with a challenge which was to either cook Marco Pierre White's Christmas Roast Turkey with Orange and Smoky Bacon Baste recipe, or come up with something else.  Since there are only two of us and it's so near to the big day, I didn't cook the Turkey.  I've popped it into the freezer and it will get cooked on Christmas day.

The orange and black pepper butter can of course be used to baste a turkey instead of chicken.

One Pot Cooking with Marco Pierre White and Knorr

Last week I was very kindly invited along with around 15 other people including food bloggers and food journalists and Knorr representatives to a 'One Pot Cooking' Masterclass by Marco Pierre White.
Marco showed us how a Knorr stock pot doesn't have to be diluted with water, just use your imagination.....


Depending of course on what you're cooking, you can use fresh carrot, apple, or prune juice either on their own or in a combination with wine or cider.

Knorr stock pots are quite marvelous things!  If you've never tried them before you really should give them a go.  There's no need to faff about making your own stock ever again as they really do taste like 'proper' stock.

Masterclass with Marco Pierre White and Knorr - the Video

Readers of this blog will remember, a couple of weeks ago I went to the 'Best of British' Masterclass with Marco Pierre White and Knorr.  Well here's a short video of the day!



Thank you again to Marco Pierre White and Knorr and of course Jen, Alastair and Neil for inviting me along.

Masterclass with Marco Pierre White and Knorr

Like myself, have you ever wondered, does 3 Michelin star chef Marco Pierre White really use Knorr stock cubes? Well yes he does!  After very kindly being invited to 'Best of British' Masterclass with Marco in his restaurant 'Marco' in London, I got to see just how he uses Knorr stock cubes.  He makes a seasoning paste from them.

All he does is crumbles a Knorr stock cube into a bowl and adds a little olive oil, then mixes well to form a paste.  To make a paste for steak Marco mixed a Knorr stock cube with a little olive oil and added a some finely chopped rosemary.  He smeared this over each steak before cooking on a grill pan.

The rib-eye steak he cooked tasted so, so good, I mean really good.  I haven't stopped going on about it since I got back!
