Salty yuk in my view, fron a company with a vile reputation.

Today I will be cooking Gnocchi in a tomato sauce with a balsamic vinagar base, with cod poached in milk with cheese and mushrooms, probably with spinach as the veg.

I've only done Gnocchi once before though and I think it is tricky to do well without practice.

Thats the beauty of cooking, when i use to cook for 400 or so people in the pub trade every day it became very mundane as it was the same stuff all the time.

I use to argue with the area manager saying that OK we are a chain of pubs and all that, but i think we should cater for the locals rather than have a set menu every day, his response was you can have a special board then produced me with a list of specials i was allowed to cook

I'd love to try catering

I'll admit the Gnocchi was a bit dismal, but if I try it again in a few days it will be better.

Gnocchi is basically mashed potato made into a dough with flour, divided into bits pressed with a fork to give surface area, then cooked and used like pasta.

Didn't learn to cook until my 20's But I was well cooked for at home so always knew the difference between real and junk food!
Hence on getting married I learnt fast Wink

Tonight will be cod poached in red wine, which makes it seem like we only do fish but we get our meat from a farm and it won't be available until Wednesday, so meat in the diet has been sparse the last few weeks

I love fish but nothing taste better than fish you have caught yourself and cooked.

While i was going though my divorce a few years back i went to tenerife for a while to help a friends mum paint her villa ( no good at painting but enjoyed the free holiday) anyway we were at the top of the island away from all the tourist and there is a very nice fish restaurant which serve the most tastiest fish i have ever tasted all cooked in their family secret sauce, i went back there 4 times just to have it again.

The only thing is they serve the fish whole and i mean whole eyeballs the lot

I'll admit to fish being a bit of a weak spot in my range. I do smoke my own Salmon etc, but I don't cook anywhere near as much fish as I would like

Sounds good Chicken is a treat for us, as free range is so expensive and we won't eat battery.

Cod sounds good as well, better than my experiment last night anyway

Still good news for me is that our meat is a day ahead of schedule and we can pick up lamb, pork and beef today

Curing salt is on stand by!
