Kind Bites Cooks the Books No 2: Lessons in Sustainability.....

Kind Bites Cooks the Books No 2: Lessons in Sustainability..... | Food | Scoop.it
Kind Bites's insight:

Todays Cooks the Books was a pre New Years Eve meal and was  actually meant to be Monkfish Osso Bucco courtesy of J Sheekeys Fish and a Risotto Milanese courtesy of Delia.....thank you both!

 

Could I find Monkfish..........no I couldnt, it was only later at the said New Years Eve shindig that a friend mentioned that Monkfish is on the unsustainable fish list (thats how we roll at our parties sustainable fish talk all the way - so rock and roll!).

 

Anyway this got me wondering how can you keep up with what is endangered and what isnt.......well after a bit of research...ta da...(see below)

 

http://www.goodfishguide.co.uk/search-results

 

A rather fabulous website that allows you to search for your fish and and gives it a rating of 1 to 5,  if your fish is 4 or 5 its time to find an alternative...which it handily gives you!

 

I wish I had completed my research pre cooking as I may have chosen another fish rather than Trout - however the results were still pretty good.....and checking on the website it has a rating of 3 or less......so my conscious is a little clearer!

 

A word to note but the main and risotto have a lot of garlic in them........probably best not to have them prior to an evening out.......New Years Eve or something similar.....ahem....

 

Recipe:  Trout Osso Bucco

Cook:  J.Sheekey

Cookbook:  Fish

Ingredients number: 14 (including seasoning)

Prep time:  20 mins

Cook time: 15 mins (approx in all)

Scary bits:  0 

Substitutions:  1  (I used Trout instead of Monkfish)

Serving size: Perfect for 4 people - a nice generous serving size 

Looks:  Great - I reduced my sauce down a little more than the original

Taste: Lovely, an impressive and tasty dish, the flavoursome trout worked well.

Served with:  Delia Smiths Risotto Milanese http://www.deliaonline.com/recipes/cuisine/european/italian/cheats-risotto-milanese.html

 

Link to original recipe: None as there wasnt the original recipe on the net but J.Sheekey is available in most bookstores.  

 

If you cant make it to your local bookstore could I suggest you use the Hive to buy the book, that way you can give a percentage of your purchase to an independent and local bookstore

Kind Bites Cooks the Books No 1: Delias Souffled Mac & Cheese

Kind Bites Cooks the Books No 1:  Delias Souffled Mac & Cheese | Food | Scoop.it
Kind Bites's insight:

Call this a New Years Resolution (starting early), but this is the start of a series where I cook up a recipe from an existing (or new! - a girls got to keep her cook book collection up to date!) cookbook and publish the results. Look at it as cookery with lots of numbers.  The intention isnt to give you the full recipe but to give you a flavour of the book, however if the recipe has already been published by the author on the net I will link to it.

 

Recipe:  Souffled Macaroni Cheese

Cook:  Delia Smith

Cookbook:  The Complete Learn to Cook

Ingredients number: 12 (including condiments)

Prep time:  20 mins

Scary bits:  0 (unless of course you are scared of separating egg yolks and whites)

Cook time: 22 mins (approx in all)

Substitutions:  1  (low fat Philadelphia for the Mascapone)

Serving size: Perfect for 2 people - a nice generous serving size 

Looks:  Great - Similar to photo in book, see photo above

Taste: Delicious but different - remember this is a souffled version so is not quite like normal mac and cheese

Vegetarians get a raw deal when it comes to Christmas lunch. Either we get lumped with a meagre combination of side dishes, or nut roast - that fail-safe veggie option - rears its unimaginative head.

Xmas might be over but if you are having a staycation on New Years Eve and having dinner in then there's some great Vegetarian options here
