Busy baking night pre Christmas

Very busy and really enjoyable night of baking. chocolate truffles a la Nigel Slater from the Observer with a hazelnut variation, my first focaccia thanks to Mr Hollywood and pate sucree for tomorrow night’s apple tart a la Ms Lawson!! Have a look at the results. Focaccia needs more paw prints and my fan forced oven is too hot and it’s a little burnt at the edges but tastes yum. Truffles are for tomorrow night’s Secret Santa so we’ll have to wait. Will fill my pastry case tomorrow with apple and butter. Hope it’ll be ok in the fridge tonight.

I'm new to blogging. I love the idea of keeping an online diary about my life in London. I like the idea that similarly minded people can peep into my life and find things to laugh about and nod in agreement (or not). I've lived in London for 21 years and come from Melbourne. This blog increasingly is becoming a diary of my growing baking interests. I've made a deal with myself to bake a loaf of bread every week and so for the last 2 months I have. I love to cook especially for friends. I have my own inner city allotment just 5 mins cycle away at King Henry's Walk and try to subsist in Summer. Please feel free to comment; I love to engage.
