Foodstory Café in Aberdeen have started making sourdough pastry. Their sourdough bread is already well-known in Aberdeen for its deliciousness so we decided to sample the sourdough pastry, strictly for academic purposes.
Foodstory is still only open for takeaways but not long now – they’ll be allowed to open fully at the end of this month.
The pain au chocolate was crispy with definite sourdough undertones. You can’t get a much better combination than sourdough pastry and chocolate.
I cycled to the allotment today to make sure nothing had blown away in the wild weather we’ve had over the past week or so. I was delighted to find lots of broccoli.
I picked some of it and we’ll have it for dinner tonight.
The tartan skirt I’m wearing I bought on eBay for £18. Isn’t it lovely? It’s 100% wool, handmade, and fully lined. It’s a bit tight so I have to make sure I don’t eat too much when I’m wearing it. I love tartan, especially Royal Stewart tartan.
Victoria likes it too.
I haven’t watched the Seaspiracy documentary which is currently topical and I probably won’t just because I find things like that so depressing and since I don’t eat any seafood anyway it would be preaching to the converted. But it did make me wonder about alternatives to salmon because hopefully it will convert lots of other people and so I decided to give the carrot lox from Bonobo Tribe Café a go.
There are lots of recipes for carrot lox on the internet but it’s basically shaved carrot in a tangy marinade. It’s very nice and lovely on bread or in sandwiches, as you would normally eat salmon.
