i made this gorgeous chocolate cake last night that consists of nothing but 6 eggs, 400 gr melted chocolate [45% cocoa] and a large cupful of ground almonds though half almonds /half spelt flour works too.

melt choc, add eggs, beat, add almonds/flour with a teaspoon of baking powder mixed through, stir gently, bake at 160 c for 40-50 mins.

i also made ganache with another 100 gr of choc and equal amount of cream.

In the heyday of 1970s vegetarianism, quiche was the go-to dish. Everybody was making them. When I taught vegetarian cooking classes then, quiche (not the classic quiche lorraine with lardons, of course) would be one of the first recipes I’d teach. I made them by the sheet pan for catering jobs; they were extremely popular, even though I now know that the crusts I made in those days weren’t very good, and the formula I used for the custard wasn’t nearly as satisfying as the formula I use now.

Zest for life: Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's recipes for cooking with lemon Lemon juice adds lightness and freshness to a dish, but it's the zest that brings pure, vibrant lemon flavour

Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s fried fish with very lemony mashed potato: ‘You’ll want to make it again.’
hmm. potato and lemon. not a desirable combo at first thought. i must try this.  aldi has lemon chocolates, at the till. everytime i look at them and think NO but according to hugh

Cocoa and lemon share acidic, aromatic qualities that cut the richness of sugary, creamy fudge

THIS on the other hand i know to be good.
