THE COOLEST GUY ALIVE

Philiet is the most talented amazing awesome dude ever ever who can make anything he touches gold – except getting a girlfriend maybe – BUT this is THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST. Totally wipes the floor with a giant sponge made from Eminem and P Diddy when he does a slow song.

A SMALL VICTORY

Today I couldn’t be bothered going to work on time cause I wanted to have a go at making these instead.

Campari and Orange Macaroons.
Grenadine and Fresh Blueberry Macaroons.

I can’t decide which was better.

Not to self: when it comes to colouring them, you really cannot hold back on the colour. More is definitely less in this case – which doesn’t often happen.

The girls at work were really impressed. When I crack the recipe I will Booyah Cook them.

Then we went for dinner at The Diner. When I got home, I stuck my fingers down my throat after champagne at work, a cocktail, a sailor jerrys with coke and fresh lime and a glass of horrid white wine. I feel a lot better now.

THE BOOYAH COOK: Sweet Basil Pesto

Yeah sorry for the wardrobe malfunction there, a bit NSFW but since getting put on the Flickr watch list, but yerrr, care less etc.

So I have to admit this isn’t even a real recipe but an attempt at freestyling something that Valeria and I ate at Dehesa the other night. We had it with baked figs and marscapone there, but there were no figs in M&S so we decided strawberries and creme fraiche would be just as good to accompany the BOOYAH recipe of the day which is SWEET BASIL PESTO.

Et voilà! Les fraises dans la tasse. Miam miam! Très joli!

INGREDIENTS
2 cups basil leaves loose not all packed just sitting in a friendly manner in the cup measure [don't stress about it being exact]
half a handful of pine nuts
2 tablespoons runny honey
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
castor sugar / icing sugar to taste

You need a food processor or blender for this. Mush everything together and every so often, stop and taste the mixture to see if it tastes velvety [the basil] and sweet [the honey]. You could possibly make the mixture a little runnier than I did but my oil wasn’t the best – kind of heavy.

Cut up the strawberries into little bowls and then add some creme fraiche or marscapone. Yerr. Then eat like a pig and stuff yourself and feel sad that you have finished when you get to the bottom of the bowl.

Anyway – the pesto should look like this when you have finished mixing it:

And so far it has kept very well in the fridge under a layer of oil.

I reckon you could serve it as a “relish” with a hard Spanish cheese or really crumbly chedder for a little canape or part of a cheese platter. And if this is not a stamp of approval I don’t know what is: The Cardinal said “If I hadn’t already had my FunDineWithMe I would make this for dessert! It’s really good!”

We ate it after a toad in the hole from the Waitrose recipe & ideas free magazine that The Frenchman cooked for Valeria as an English experience.

Banging! [OJ LOL]

Anyway bed… though the action is NEARLY finished…

THE BOOYAH COOK: DESSERTS WITH BOOZE

After a really tedious day at work, after an argument with your ex, after treading in dog shit [which can potentially make you feel just as bad as the run in with the ex] or even at the end of a big dinner here is my refreshing and alcoholic dessert option that kills two birds with one stone – feeding something other than your appetite and getting drunk.

Elderflower, Cava and Fruit Jelly

The leftover portion photographed in a bowl cause I forgot to take a picture of the real ones and I smashed one as well I made these desserts and served them in sherry glasses. The fruit does all the decoration and if you put it in a glass you look really chic. Even guys could make this. [Roffing to myself]

Ingredients
Mixed soft fruit [you can use anything like blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries - MULBERRIES WOULD BE BANGING! In fact any fruit but not pineapple or kiwi fruit or there would be a reaction with the gelatine and it wouldn't set. Kind of a CSI thing.]
4 leaves of gelatine
140ml elderflower cordial
2 heaped tablespoons caster sugar
425ml prosecco or cava

Put the cava, fruit and serving bowls all in the fridge so that they are cold.
Soak the leaves of gelatine in bit of cold water for about 2 minutes.

If you have a double boiler put the cordial in over hot water and add gelatine. If you don’t have a double boiler you can fake one with a bowl floating in a saucepan. And if you can’t be bothered to do that [like I wasn't] just put the cordial and gelatine in a saucepan over a really really low heat and constantly stir it until the gelatine is dissolved. If it looks like it is going to get too hot boil, take it off the heat again for it to cool down a bit. If you boil it, the gelatine won’t set. [It's a CSI kind of thing too.]
Then add the sugar. It should dissolve pretty quickly in the warm cordial mixture.

Take the saucepan off the heat and leave it to cool down a bit which will take as long as it does to get all the stuff out of the fridge you need, put the fruit into all the bowls or glasses [Take the green bits of the strawberries and cut them in half. You don't need to do anything to the other fruits.] and open the cava and measure it out.

Add the cava to the gelatine. It is going to froth up quite a bit so add the cava slowly. Once it is all mixed together pour over the fruit.

Put it back in the fridge to set. You can easily make this the day before so no sweat on the big night.
Serve with crème fraîche or on its own.

Don’t drop and smash one on the kitchen floor though like I did and have sticky elderflower everywhere and a beautiful glass dead because you were a bit pissed already and miss handled it.

THE BOOYAH COOK: BROAD BEAN RISONI

Many years ago God created earth, humans, rocks, animals, houses and Google. When He put everything here, we were all the same. Then suddenly some people starting thinking for themselves. God said “Don’t Eat The Apple” but Eve made Adam eat the apple. God cast them out of the Garden of Eden for being Vegetarians. Fast-forward to the year 2009 and like the rest of us, even God has chilled out and reconsidered some of his first ideas. Vegetarians live peacefully amongst us thinking up one thousand and one things to do with tofu. Sometimes as cooks, we have to come up with nice dishes that don’t look they came out of some Earth Mother’s armpit that both regular people and Vegetarians can all “break bread” with one another and feast at the same table. This is why today I am presenting in The Booyah Cook series “Minted Broad Bean Risoni” that can be an accompaniment to something like roast lamb or chicken [yum!] or on it’s one in a smorgasbord of salads. Or if you are a student, have it just on it’s own but substitute all the green stuff for broccoli and the risoni for rice as per usual.

Here is the list of ingredients:
1 tablespoon of olive oil
500 grams of broad beans
3/4 cup of risoni
4 green onions / spring onions whatever you call them, sliced thinly
2/3 cup coarsely chopped fresh flat leaf parsley
1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh mint
2 tablespoons lemon juice – use fresh not squeezy lemon. IMPORTANT.

Initial tips:
All this stuff you can buy at Marks and Spencer or Waitrose more readily that other places. See this recipe already smells of quality.
Risoni is a small rice shaped pasta. It is also available in Turkish shops. [i.e cheap]

First things first, get your broad beans, put them in a heavy saucepan or a ceramic bowl that you can cover with a dinner plate, and tip boiling water straight from the kettle on them. Cover and leave to stand for 10 minutes. Drain them and wait for them to cool down. After that is done, you have to peel the greyish outer shell from the bean. Anticipating that this was going to be fucking boring, I decided to use a mixture of baby garden peas and broad beans so that I only had to peel 250 grams worth. Not just a pretty face.

Cook the risoni like the side of the risoni packet tells you. Rinse under cold water when you drain it.

Then get your favourite saucepan. [Mine is still my Le Creuset one even though I nearly killed it with a freestyle Lamb and Honey Moroccan stew I made the other day that burned almost dry. But that is another story.]

Put the oil and the onions on a low heat and wait till the bit of onion go a bit soft. Add the cold risoni and the beans / peas / sugar snap peas / whatever [NOT LENTILS] til everything warms up together again. Add all the herbs [these don't have to be exact measurement BTW. A big handful of parsley and a slightly smaller one of mint would be accurate enough] and lemon juice.

Eat. Or leave it and eat it cold.

Here it is.

What Day Is It?

Oh Man! So I’m awake now and I really wanted a cool chill out weekend with a lot of rest. Next weekend I’m in Paris with Pippa and that will take a lot of energy eating cake. Etc. Max is also going to be there too I think. He will want to chew the fat. But I don’t want to do that. Pippa and I planned to check out Fifi Chachnil but I don’t think I can stand Max’s tourettes whilst doing that and also the £1200 for the ticket to Australia for Christmas burnt a hole in my… soul… Anyway where was I?! Okay so on Friday night was the Extreme Animals show at the Old Blue Last. I like that pub a lot and think it is great for “traditional” bands, DJ’s and MC’s but not the best for making a big gay sweatbox – which I was definitely in the mood for. But many very very cool things happened though, which resulted in this:


Thug Missus

Daniel ASBO D kissed me right on the mouth in front of Prancehall when I said hello. It was a total moment. My knickers couldn’t keep it all in. Prancehall won’t let me take pictures of him any more. It doesn’t matter. I still have a lot of old ones I can post and make stupid jokes that I don’t mean and totally offend him with…


The Incredible Hulk


Philipa promoting the 7Yeezie / DO IT! party featuring DJ Assault

After the sound check, Philipa, James, Jacob, David and I all went and had dinner together. James was being the Alpha Male all night. But that is okay cause he is doing some design work for really big cosmetic companies right now and I’m sure his office is like full of girls walking around in bath robes getting facial treatments and bikini waxes. Philipa and I were trying to calculate the number of beers she could drink to stay under the legal limit cause she had to drive the drum kit back again. We had a good time at dinner with a lot of warm converstation and friendly laughs.
I wish we had invited these guys along. They would have really helped keep our positive vibes buoyant.


Brains, Easychord, Thugly.

Oh no – hang on it’s okay – Brains got loose.

Paul and Paul


Silverlink and Paul came.

Cassetteplaya came.


The Extreme Animals came.

And with the rythmic wild congo style deep from africa spiritual drumming of David:

Jacob got naked:

Silverlink and Brains got sexual and demanded Carrie and I perform a Booty-Off with one another:

And with the out of control vibes rising I spiritually raped Jacob:


And the whole night ended in a fried chicken orgy back on my sofa bed at 2AM. We listened to Mo-Do and all fell asleep.
BOOYAH!

P.S. Also to note XXCENSOREDXX and XXCENSOREDXX are hating on XXCENSOREDXX right now cause they feel like XXCENSOREDXX isn’t being a good enough friend right now. There was some major air pie around.

P.P.S. Also, XXCENSOREDXX writes gossip as their main job. But XXCENSOREDXX is the first person to give me grief if I write something here that XXCENSOREDXX doesn’t like. XXCENSOREDXX’s justification is that the people I write about are people me and all my friends know which is personal stuff. Maybe I have ideas about my station and I think that me and all my friends live in our own celebrity stratosphere, but are celebrities people too?
