Nigella Watch Out, Aunty Lolo’s About

by Stewart 25. May 2013 02:50

I often find it a wonder that my Aunty Lolo has any time to cook when what should take her a 5min walk to Tesco, usually ends in a three hour gossip with friends that she has met on the journey. However, when she does eventually get into the kitchen you better believe some kind of delicious creation is coming out.

With enough recipes to give Jamie Oliver a run for his money I asked her if she could rustle up a few for you guys and she was more than happy to oblige. From Aunty L and I, we hope you enjoy.


Roast parsnips with sesame seeds
Toss 450g of parsnips with a tablespoon of clear honey and add a sprinkling of sesame seeds. Roast until tender and carmelised.


Chocolate Truffles
5oz dark chocolate or white chocolate
5oz double cream
1oz unsalted butter

Put butter and cream in a pan and bring to simmer. Add chocolate and stir until you have a smooth mixture. Take off heat. You can add a tablespoon of Tia Maria, rum, brandy or Cointreau and mix well. Cover and put in fridge until cold then form into balls and roll in cocoa powder, finely chopped nuts, coconut or chocolate strands.  Put in Christmas sweet cases and serve with coffee.
