Yesterday Chicago John drove down from the city to help us make ravioli for the freezer. This is an old family tradition and he came armed with the filling and the flour, his rollers and molds. Everything we needed. My chickens supplied the eggs of course!
For the recipe for the dough and the fillings pop over to John’s blog. And for a further discussion on the recipes and the making of the dough grab his book it is not expensive and well loved in many a kitchen.
And even though I have the book nothing replaces sheer, joyful, passionate expert teaching in the kitchen. We had fun. Our helpers were enthusiastic and worn out at the end of the day, the freezer is full and we had a delicious dinner. I hope to make this an annual event!
And the aubergine (eggplant) are beginning to ripen in the garden. I have family coming to stay next week so I am excited at the amount of produce I can feed them with.
I hope you have a lovely day.
