CHOCOLATE MACAROON DESSERT

No, this isn’t a recipe for just chocolate macaroons – it’s actually a chocolate dessert with macaroons on top.  It’s a new one to me. It’s cooked in individual souffle dishes with a chocolate crumb base, a rich chocolate/coffee sauce and topped with coconut macaroons.  Definitely one for the chocolate lovers.

SALMON PATTIES – THAI, AUSTRALIAN, SWEDISH

As a child I loved going to stay at my Auntie Elsie’s as she would always make salmon patties for me, I loved them.  I’ve never managed to make any as good as hers and they certainly weren’t as fancy as these ones that John West published years later.  The closest here is the Australian version minus the corn or lemon.

CHICKEN AND VEGETABLE ROLL

I know it’s lazy but I think being able to buy frozen sheets of pastry is a wonder of modern baking.  Although I don’t usually buy wholemeal sheets I do think they would work really well in this tandoori flavoured chicken and vegetable roll.
