Consommé and Cheesecake

I am doing a Don Henley, but where he was thinking about forgiveness, I am thinking about food. Ha! You say I am always thinking about food? Well, yes, that is true, but today I am thinking about consommé and cheesecake.

I was chatting to my good buddy Jo yesterday, she has given up coffee, but still craves her hot drinks. I had my blood pressure taken yesterday, and you know it is never good when the doctor makes a face like a cat’s bum and does the sharp intake of breath, so my own coffee intake, which I must admit has crept back up to four a day, must also be addressed. So I am thinking about consommé, which is a clear broth that has been enriched with meats and vegetables and then clarified with egg whites. No, not like a bone broth, a bone broth is the backbone of a consommé. A consommé has a richness and a full mouthfeel reminiscent of a good latte. Hmm. I am thinking that if I make a big pot of consommé and reduce it down I could then freeze it into my little silicon cupcake moulds that I don’t trust in the oven, and then decant into a couple of containers and then it would simply be a matter of popping one into a small pot or cup, topping up with boiling water and then heating. Hmmmmm.

I am also thinking about cheesecake. Vegetarian cheesecake. One of my young friends who is vegetarian, Sir Sam of the Skinny Jeans, loves cheesecake, so I am thinking on using some of the jel-it-in that we used in our parfait to make him one, it is a little trickier to use than gelatine, but I think I have figured out a way to make a cold set cheesecake with it that will not taste like boiled cream.

Want to come play in the Cookie House? It is going to be an interesting day.
