Cooking outside the comfort zone

Hello Everyone,

One of my colleagues left work recently and we had a ‘fuddle’ on her last day.  This is where everyone brings something to eat and we share a lunch together.  I put my name down to make a Bakewell tart.  I’ve made one once before, but I couldn’t find the recipe, so I used the one from ‘Jamie’s Dinners’.

It was a bit of a challenge.  I made a pastry case which then had to be put in the fridge to chill, rolled out and put in a tin and put in the freezer.  The case was cooked, and in the meantime I made the filling, using the last of the eggs I collected when I looked after my friend’s hens when she was on holiday.

I’m pleased to say that it came out ok, and I was thrilled when it all disappeared.  I even snuck a piece myself, and was pleasantly surprised by how good it tasted.

I’m glad I took a risk with cooking something right outside my comfort zone – it’s given me the confidence to try other things.  What have you tried cooking that’s turned out really well?

Until next time, Tawney.
