Just before Easter, the lovely Matthew Coniam tipped me off to the fact that there was a copy of Sophia Loren’s Eat With Me cookbook on ebay for a reasonable price. I was on it like a car bonnet.
I scored it for £6.99 – the only other copy on there at the moment is £69.55 so I am very pleased with myself. It’s a lovely little book, packed with great recipes. Sophia really does know how to cook.
Heather and Nathan came to dinner last night, and I fancied making something by Sophia for the “snack platter.” I had little mini crostini in my Ocado order. Hence Sophia’s Roquefort Cream was spread on those lovely little crunchy snacks and they were wolfed down.
I made half of Sophia’s recipe which was basically the following whisked up in a mini blender: 4.5 oz Roquefort, 1 tablespoon butter, 1 teaspoon vinegar, 1 clove garlic, juice of 1/4 an onion*, pinch of paprika and 1/2 teaspoon finely chopped celery**.
* life is too short to juice an onion so I used some onion salt mixed with water.
** Mr R is celery averse so I omitted this.
It was VERY blue cheesey…
