Yes, the little man, our Celebrity Chef, is back in action:
And this time he had an accomplice! Together they spent a whole day making enough apple crumble for a
A real live pastry chef and his beautiful wife came to spend the day with us on Saturday. Peter and Klari thank you so much we had a wonderful time. And if you ever want to know anything about sugar art or just want to be amazed then have a look at his site.
So Peter and the Celebrity Chef got dressed in their disguises:
Then they sorted their ingredients – sorted and sorted! Talked and discussed, plotted and planned.
Then they began:
Step 1: They made a basic pastry, trust me – totally basic.
Hood#1 documented it all:
And on the Chef’s worked.
And popped the pastry into the fridge for a couple of hours.
Step 2: Then they made enough custard for a whale to go swimming, with all its cousins!
And crumbled some muffins for the toppings.
Step 3: So they got out the apples and they peeled apples and peeled and peeled…
And called in the troops to help. Luckily we have plenty of those.
And we paused for a feast – shew…
Step 4: We recovered from our feast with a wander to the beach.
The chefs needed a lot more rest than others.
Right, back to work guys…
Step 5: They lined the pans with pastry, only the biggest pans we could find.
And they made the filling and if you are taking notes: a bazillion chopped apples, a bazillion raisins and sultanas, bananas, crumbled muffins and about a bottle of cinnamon.
Step 6: Popped the mix in the pastry pans. Topped with pinches of dough and butter and a little bit more cinnamon.
And popped the whole lot into the oven.
And paused for some magic tricks.
Step 7: Just checking the custard. And feast till you full.
Don’t forget to dot it with Lindt buttons.
Yum, Yum You Are Finally Done!
Settle down with a book to recover.
Thanks guys for the most wonderful day, we had a brilliant time.
