Rick Steins Weekends away

Postby Zosherooney » January 19th, 2017, 6:44 pm

Anyone watching, this is 2nd time around but still good anyway....? Last night he was in Palermo Sicily and made these - or very similar http://www.deliciousdays.com/archives/2 ... s-panelle/.

We thought we might have a go and wondered if anyone else has any experience of them ??? :chops:

I liked the way the Duchess set the chickpea purée in a tin, and pushed it out slowly so that it could be thinly sliced. He mentioned fennel seeds were the usual additional flavour locally.

I haven't looked online, but do you think there are recipes somewhere ? I apart from the chick pea flour (gram ?) and fennel seeds, I can't remember what the liquid was, or proportions :(

I did look online and some of the other ways of shaping the gram flour mix seemed messy, but yes, thought I might try it with a washed out baked bean tin and either a sharp knife or a piece of kitchen string.

Fennel is fast becoming my new favourite herb, it is so fresh and green tasting. I think that cumin would work as well.

Only £10 on Amazon (with Prime)
But look at the reviews, the consensus seems to be that it s good, but it is, oddly not ordered accursing to destination but as Fridsay Nght Supper, Saturday brunch etc.

And people seem to think that the recipes aren't exactly what he did on screen

The other recipe he watched being made was the 'pasta cake' like this recipe....https://www.rickstein.com/blog/recipes- ... s-palermo/. I have just spent time putting one together. Hope we like it because there is enough to feed an army....... Now that may be a way of keeping them quiet !!!!! Boy they have been loud earlier today, can't see any cracks in the double glazing.

I did mine with lamb mince and large pasta. It is sitting in the garage cooling down, I will oven bake it on Tue/Wed. :chops:

I clicked on the link you provided Zosh, but it came up with a list of recipes (that I didn't recall being shown :? ) but nothing about the 'pasta cake' :? :td:

Our pasta cake is just about to come out of the oven, I cooked it in my springform tin, do hope it set with a crusty aubergine topping. Also did not have marsala only cremovo - apparently marsala wine and egg.

Thanks Catherine, I thought it would copy.

Well, that was a result, very nice indeed and thankfully did not add the amount of sugar they suggested. The 'Marsala' was sufficient enough for sweetness. We have enough for quite a few more meals :chops:
