What’s new with FriFran! 12 November 2017

After all the Halloween and Bonfire Night who-ha you would think the fireworks would ease, wouldn’t you? Well, they don’t. Last night was the Lord Mayor’s Show in the City of London so MORE fireworks. Plus, kids love the set them off – usually at about two o’clock in the afternoon when they should be at school! They joys of living in a big city! 

There will be a steady stream of fireworks through to New Year I think! 

New and exclusive recipes this Week on FriFran…

Off fireworks and on to business! This weeks recipes are pretty diverse! 

I am kicking off a month of Mexican-insprired food and started with one of my all-time favourite dips… Guacamole – Onion Free, Garlic Free, Tomato Free … I can never get enough guac on a tortilla chip. I like mine spicy and without alliums and tomatoes. They just dilute the pure joy of spicy guac. I hope you like the guac as much as I do.

Halloween and Bonfire Night are a trigger for me to get on with making my Gluten Free, Vegan Christmas Cake. I like to make it around about this time of year, with six weeks or so to go to Christmas. I wrap it in grease-proof paper and set it aside for a week or two in a cool dark place. Then I start feeding it sherry, or triple sec, just a little at a time. By the time the cake is ready to decorate, it is rich, moist and plump with delicious booze. You can use your booze of choice. A very dry sherry, like a fino, works incredibly well. Salty and almondy and super dry. Perfect to feed the cake and perfect to drink with the cake.
