Last Nights Funkin’ MCC Rocked

Chicken Korma followed by a chocolate orange mousse. Now we know what to cook for the ladies in our lives, and err, their dads… 🙂

I’ve actually made the mousse again already, it was so easy i can’t believe it, I’ll never buy one again… Who new you could mix egg yolks with chocolate? The recipe is coming…

Pimped by “The Food Whore”

Sent an email to the wonderfully wonderful food whore mentioning the fact that us new blogger and cooking ignoramous types could do with a little support.

In the blink of an eye and before we could debag a passing pyschology student , “The Food Whore” posted a nice recommendation to us – The MCC; and the people did start to come. We’re not quite sure what to do with people who are not us, as the MCC is an excercise in learning to cook, blogging was/is just an excercise in remembering stuff. Not that I remember anything (luckily we blogged it then!).

So hello to all you visitors from afar, we’re not sure if we should be more polite or far ruder, time will tell.

A cold rush of tomato coulis to the head

Eyes down & watch this space… Like a Star Wars franchise, we keep coming back. The M.C.C. is currently locked down in the “lab” ready to unleash mucho mas culinary goodness to the converted & non-believers alike. We know no boundaries or prejudice, just passion, flavours & living La Vida Loca. We are the Ricky Martins of cyberspace-tight trouser wearing, cuban heal rocking hombres of the cocina…”Back, forward-cha-cha-cha…forward, back,cha-cha-cha.”

Citrus Butter Beans – The Last of the Summer Hummer

The last of last weeks lovely summer hummer salads. This was my fave, although I think that we added a little too much of the old purple onion for most peeps, so watch that.

Segmenting the orange was a strange experience that you would think is easy, but again like most of these things is “easy once you know how”, I’ll wait for Pat to add this as a tip. Suffice to say we used an orange or two more than we should whilst learning this one.

The Soundtrack to Our Slicing

For me, music, or “La Musica” as them Spanish call it, is an integral part (or “ingredient”, if you will) of the M.C.C. And it adds a certain ambience to the proceedings…

This week our soundtrack was The Bees-Free The Bees, Max Romeo-War Inna Babylon, Beck-Odelay, Bubba Sparxx-Deliverance(slept on & mint cd) and Little Brother-The Listening(I loves that producer 9th Wonder, mind)

Here’s some words that rhyme-“sprout” “scout” “stout” “out” “shout” “about” and “trout”. Mmmm, fresh.

Russian Potato Salad

Another night, another MCC, the summer hummer is upon us. This potato salad rocks and in no small part thanks to the home made mayo, which I’ll cross post another time (I’m getting fed up with saying that, still got some Tuna and Sardines to write up…). Stupidly I got so excited (really) making the mayo that I forgot o take a picture of our Russian salad friend complete, so the ingredients will have to do, shame really as it looks better fully dressed…
