It’s Grand Prix weekend here in Melbourne this weekend. My husband is a F1 fan and we not only go to the race here every year, but also have been lucky enough to go to several races overseas. As you’d expect the food on sale at the track varies from country to country. So far, unsurprisingly, Italy has had the best. Here in Melbourne it’s all pretty much heavy duty fried things so I usually take a lighter lunch for us. Tomorrow I’m making these Frittatas to take……..
This selection of Tapas delicacies was published in the Herald Sun in about 2002. Of course they are much more common now, but this selection are fairly simple to make and as the accompanying article says are ideal “taken with a glass of sherry, beer or wine”.
This is a quick and easy vegetable only dish and would be great if you’re looking for a meat free night or something to serve vegetarian friends. Of course, you could also serve it alongside a juicy steak or lamb chops………..
In Mum’s time lamb was a cheap and tasty meat to use, but with the cost of racks of lamb at what they are today if you’re going to cook them you might just as well push the boat out and add a great topping. I don’t think you can go wrong with this mustard, garlic and soy sauce combo spread on top.
Seems like when Mum tore this out of the Woman’s Day she missed the last few lines so has handwritten them on the bottom. Her instructions read “other half 27cm” and “over with pastry. 200o C, 400oF – 40 mins”. I’ll add my comments – that this could be a hearty pie for vegetarians by simply substituting the bacon for extra vegetables.
Wish I’d found this recipe before my daughter and I worked out the savories to serve at my husband’s recent 70th birthday party. She ended up making some wonderful treats, but these might have been an easy addition.
