Every January…usually the first week, I have a tradition. I sit down with Nigel Slater’s Kitchen Diaries (there are 3 volumes now) and plan what I’m going to cook during January. His Ginger cake is incredible!
I do love a cookery book (and cooking), but Nige is my favourite. His books are more than just a collection of recipes and reading them gives me a warm fuzzy feeling on a cold winters day.
Following Nigel’s philosophy, today I’ll be experimenting in the kitchen. I have a Panettone that I bought just after Christmas (it was reduced). I’m not really a fan…so, after a bit of Googling, I’ve decided to try using it to make Bread Pudding.
If it turns out well it’ll be lovely, warm with a cup of tea as I watch the rain fall outside. And if not, I’m sure the birds will enjoy it for breakfast tomorrow 😉
