Goodbye Freshly Blogged. It was fun while it lasted. Now I can get back to my own blog and cook what I love. No more vote requests, just honest recipes that I love to share and have you try. Below is the final recipe I created for Freshly Blogged but this one is mine alone to share with you.
When I took it to work people kept coming back for more so I know it is morish. It is a bit of a fussy recipe but so worth it. The brief this week was to create something inspired by an artist or a work of art.
Van Gogh has always been a favourite of mine. Possibly because he showed that it didn’t matter how precise your lines are, it is the overall beauty that makes art what it is.
My choice piece was originally ‘Stary Night’, but after much thought and planning and jumping up and down on my recipe to try and make it fit, I realised I needed to change my choice. I decided to stay with Van Gogh and see if he there was another creation I could be inspired by. When I saw Wheat Field with Çrows’ I was sold. The brush strokes that made up the wheat reminded me of hot chips and the rest was a process of ideas tumbling out onto the plate. Chicken with sherry, a playful use of pan-fried chorizo and spicy wild rocket to cut the sweetness and my dish was created.
The lines are not precise but the flavours work together to create art on the tongue.
