I have to say I have struggled with the idea of writing for the food blog when the world is being subject to the ravages of the Corona Virus and so the Smokedfinefood.co.uk has been rather quiet in the past few weeks. However, looking at the pressure there has been on our supermarkets and food suppliers we have been looking at ways of preparing food that makes it go that bit further and makes use of ‘odds and sods’ of food and indeed left overs too! Some of this we have cooked on the BGE – but some we have also cooked in a domestic oven so hopefully there will be something for everyone!
We will try and intersperse these recipes and ideas with some of the more usual Smokedfinefood/Big Green Egg offerings. We are trying to ‘raid the freezer’ rather than ‘raid the food suppliers’ and so some of these recipes are challenging the ways we normally cook. We are being asked to shop once a week or less and some of us are also self isolating. This means we need to cook with what we have around us – and that in itself makes cooking a little quirky and hopefully more interesting!
The first of these is our – ‘left over’ starter – cold rice – some mushrooms and a small piece of guanciale but half a slice of bacon chopped fine would do just as well – see the picture at the top – and go straight to the blog by clicking here
