LEON and cook5

HELLO! Sorry I haven't been in touch recently but I have been doing allot of things though. 

I have entered a competition on a website called cook5 by the people from Leon restaurants in london. I WON the first monthly prize for most liked dish and the prize (don't say I was betting) was one hundred pounds! It made me feel astonished. Here is my dish:

This is a list of what I did with it 
1. I gone to a very posh food shop when I was in Edinburgh and bought a vanilla pod

2. Got some food for a fancy dinner party

3. I had my friends round and made this:

MENU: crostini with cannelini beans/bruschetta topping; gnocchi with aubergine and tomato sauce; floating islands (but we had them the next night because we were all too tired). Floating islands are poached meringues in a vanilla custard. The starter was a Jamie recipe and I had used his alla norma sauce recipe on my home made gnocchi.

Erin and Nicole had helped a bit, Iain helped me with the gnocchi

Goody good goodbye

Hello  Two days ago I went to a very fancy restaurant in edinburgh called The Kitchin
thats the link!
All the food I liked except one thing and that was a chicken jelly.
My starter was a ravioli  but with seafood inside it . It had a lemony sauce drizzled round it. Its green pasta 

Then for mane course I ate plaice with squid and mussels and a buttery sauce.

then for dessert I had a giant soufflĂ© with lemon and I LOVED  IT!

the best bit of it was meeting TOM KITCHIN. He is a very famous chef. He was reely  nice! I talked to him about cooking.

the day before I made his pasta with mussels.
