As I said last time, I was trying the panini in a different shape for Oats customers to have with soup, and I think I cracked it,
They still look a bit artisan, unfortunately the pictures of them after cooking have vanished, never mind, I think you get the idea. And Sally liked them.
After lunch, the great sample experiment started. I have cooked the pesto bread before, so wasn't too worried about that, but the Turkey, Stuffing and Cranberry was a new one on me, as was the Mincemeat Teacake.
I used Paul Munseys excellent Apple and Cinnamon Flour as a base for the mincemeat Dough, its a variation on a sweet focaccia that I used to sell in Gravesend, so I was happy enough about that one, just making rolls instead of the flat loaf.
As you can see, they passed the test, Yvonne wanted another, but that would mean no samples to give to Millie tomorrow.
Cranberries and Stuffing were mixed before I made the dough,
and was added on top of the chopped turkey.
I then made spirals, as I love the form, and baked them like the others that I do.
Once again, astounding, if I do say so myself, and passed the Yvonne test with flying colours.
Lastly the Pesto loaf, same as last time.
Just have to do the toasting of the slices.
And here they are,
So we went down to Millie, hoping that the rain would hold off, and got there in the dry.
The first inspired idea (Thanks Yvonne) was to warm the Turkey roll up, and Sophie really enjoyed it. In fact she called it Christmas Lunch in one, or something similar. She wants some to sell from the end of November.
The bruschetta were next to sample, and also went down well. Would be nice with soup was the suggestion.
Then the teacake, which was toasted and buttered, and also put on the list to sell from the end of November. A customer spotted our tasting session and blagged a piece of the teacake, also pronouncing it delicious.
So a successful mornings work there, an order for next week and something to look forward to. I love my baking job.
