Next Saturday night is my turn to cook for Gastro Guru’s (GG’s). I need to plan a menu and let everyone know what they’re having so they can decide what to drink. GG’s is FuzzEman, myself, Al and Wez. We meet once a month and take turns cooking. You have to cook something that you haven’t cooked before and you can’t test it beforehand. You can decide to do three courses or two.
One consideration is Nigella’s ham in Coca Cola . It’s a little frightening, but could be fun. I made her Coca Cola cake and I must have done something wrong, it didn’t rise a whole lot and had the consistency of rubber and looked like chocolate brown rubber.
I’ll have to trawl through my recipe books and magazines this weekend and figure something out. Maybe something from Stephanie (“The Cook’s Companion” is a MUST have), Donna, Nigella, Jamie or Delicious…any suggestions?
