Cottage pie and Steak ‘n’ ale pie are both looking really good, yum.
The next book in the Scoffer series will be called The Pie Scoffer and we hope to have it out in time for World Vegan Day. Pie testing now begins in earnest.
Boris and Ronny had a great time at London Vegan festival and sold 150 books; thanks to everybody who came, chatted to us and bought ’em.
The fifth Scoffer book, “The Veggies Scoffer; over 25 years on the catering front line” is now available. It’s 24 pages and lookin’ good.
This title has been published by Veggies, not by me, so get it from them. You can order via their website: http://www.veggies.org.uk or look out for them at any of the 70+ events they cater at each year.
The Scoffer range of cookbooks now numbers five; The Cake Scoffer (2000), The Salad Scoffer (2002), The (all day) Breakfast Scoffer (2010), The Return of the Cake Scoffer (2010) and the brand new Veggies Scoffer (2011).
The Veggies Scoffer will be published by Veggies Catering Campaign on 16th April; in time for the World Day for Laboratory Animals march in Manchester.
This recipe is in development for the new book.
Rab C Rabbit’s eight little bunnies love making these. They leave the kitchen an unholy mess afterwards, but at least it keeps them from getting under my feet or chewing the flexes.
50 g margarine
150g dairy-free dark chocolate
5 tbsp syrup
30 g dessicated coconut
1 tsp vanilla essence
1. Melt the chocolate in a large bowl above a pan of boiling water. Stir in the marg and syrup and mix well.
2. Tip everything else in and mix really quickly, as it will start to set. Spoon into paper cake cases, or just put clusters of it on a baking tray. Set in the fridge.
Our new cookbook, The Cake Scoffer Strikes Back is in development. This blog will be used to test some of the recipes.
