Supervillians: this week we’re featuring the dreaded dyno-sprout!

Fear not: sprouts really needn’t taste awful!

Follow our step-by-step guide and you too can produce veges that you and your kids will actually like!

One of the problems with the well-known purveyors of “fast food” is that they too understand our preferences and especially the younger mind with it’s shorter route to gratification! We need therefore to make good ‘slow food’ more accessible like fast food! If you’re watching MacDonalds, here’s an autumnal serving tip for you!

Learn how to emulate their tricks using healthier fresher ‘un-processed food’ ingredients with our step-by-step guide ..

Our series continues with some flavorsome additions

We’ve given ourselves a 90-minute time frame for scheduling the cooking into a ‘Brussels away match’ with quarter-time, half-time and three-quarter-time sequenced activities – and even allowed ourselves 10 mins extra time for penalties!

Showing you how to bake your vegies rather than boil them to death!

Tips for midnight fridge-raiders .. keep a plate of roast veges under cling-film in the fridge – this will stop them drying-out

Dyno-sprouts on the vine can be twice as big as their smaller relatives served-up in-the-bag .. the final reckoning is to cut them in half so they will cook within the 45 minute time-frame allotted – without requiring extra-time!

 

Final stages – finishing touches

At cottingham.tv and with Halloween Festivities in mind, we’re having a ‘kindness to carrots’ day!

How to enjoy eating your greens – even if they are orange!

Vegetables needn’t taste awful -with these few basic cooking tips from Cottingham.tv you too can make them taste great!

Vegetables needn’t taste like medicine – as something that has to be endured rather than enjoyed. In fact, the Victorians had a dreadful old maxim: the worse a medicine tasted, the more it did you good. Indeed our puritanical, no-frills approach to food preparation and cooking still persists today out in the regions!

How to avoid murdering your vegetables to death!

continued ..

Despite all the TV cooking programs out there, in this northern region and I’m sure in many others, our 1970s school dinner-style fried or boiled mentality persists where children are made to eat their greens and clear their plates!

Even your kids will like them!

Here at Cottingham.tv we’ve added an autumnal twist so you can enjoy eating your greens! continued ..

continued ..

it’s better for you, better for the kids and better for the carrots!

N.B: If you want separate carrot servings, after grilling your carrots on an oven tray under an open oven red-heat grill for 20 minutes as described, you should leave them in a closed oven covered in cooking foil with some added boiling water on 150 degrees for a further hour to cook them through thoroughly – you can add other vegetables as described. Remove smallerveges when they are browned!

Pumpkins are “squashes” like aubergines and courgettes and they will also respond well to this kind of cooking – but please note they have shorter cooking times – but you need to experiment!

Happy Halloween from Cottingham.tv!

Visiting The Ferguson Fawsitt, Walkington

Renowned for its excellent meals providing some of the best value pub food and dining in the region!

A square deal for a square meal – with greatly appreciated consistent quality and variety – the editor is a long-repeated Sunday lunch-diner there since childhood and it remains a firm favorite!

 

Visiting Walkington

Quack! Quack!

We return to the theme of ducks and geese – how could we resist!

Duck Island takes centre-stage (centre-left)

 

Walkington is famous for its duck pond – providing a watering hole for both geese and ducks!

And of course, the duck house on the pond is easily missed if you don’t get out of the car and have a look round (next to the long pond grass)! For those in the know, a walking path exists signposted from the spot we’re standing on whilst photographing this)

Please shut the gate afterwards for some obvious reasons and other less-obvious ones – it’s part of the Countryside Code!
