Name: Hook Norton Double Stout
Recipe: Take a top side roast overcooked till dry and cut into bite sized cubes. Cook till re-moistened in stock with a caramelized onion then mix with some sliced brown mushrooms and blanched broccoli, chopping in some cilantro/coriander and red bell pepper. Crumble in some stinky bleu cheese and fold into some puff pastry, sealing to make pasties. Bake at 200°C until golden brown (brush with a little butter just before they are finished). Yum.
Review/notes: Deep colour and deeper flavour. A new favourite stout.
Watched ‘Dancer in the Dark,’ which is a bit surreal but lighter than, say ‘Breaking the Waves.’ Von Trier is very disturbing.
