  • Polenta Party! Added on June 1st, 2011 by grahamandgreen

    I was inspired by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's polenta recipes in this weekend's Guardian mag. With some friends coming over for dinner I thought I would try this out on them (Dev doesn't eat meat or fish so it seemed the perfect opportunity)! It was a hit. Phew. Polenta makes a good crust for a spring or summer tart. You can, of course, make this from scratch, but you can also make it from any leftover cooked polenta. To make this, or the next two dishes, vegetarian, use another mature hard cheese instead of the parmesan. Serves six. 1 tsp olive oil 300g fine or instant polenta 80g finely grated parmesan 4 tbsp finely chopped chives 300g thin asparagus, trimmed 3 eggs, beaten 240ml double cream 1 tsp Dijon mustard Salt and freshly ground black pepper 100g gruyère, grated Heat the oven to 190C/375F/gas mark 5. Take a 25cm tart tin with a removable base and grease with olive oil. Either cook the polenta as described above or, if using instant, follow the instructions on the packet. Stir in the cheese and stir for five minutes more. Stir in the chives and set aside to cool for about 10 minutes. Spoon the polenta into the tart tin. Spread it evenly over the bottom and up the sides to a thickness of about 4mm (keep back a tablespoon or two, to mend any cracks that appear after cooking). Bake until dry and crisp around the edges, about 30 minutes. If there are any cracks in the tart shell, fill with the reserved polenta. For the filling, lightly steam the asparagus for three minutes and lay in the polenta case. Whisk the eggs, cream and mustard, and season well. Pour over asparagus, sprinkle on the cheese and bake for 35-40 minutes, until golden brown and just set. YUMMY!

  • Pip's Picks for Summer 2011 Added on May 12th, 2011 by grahamandgreen

     

    Glass top desk

    The sharp corners of this table and chair are clearly not child-friendly, and are all the more beautiful for this fact. Sitting here, in front of a sunny window, with a pot of fresh coffee and your mind free from clutter, you couldn’t fail to start typing something smart, sophisticated, and perhaps a little sexy. Or even if your creative juices aren’t flowing, at least you’ve got a stunning piece of furniture to struggle over a crossword on.

    Kartell Louis armchair

    Kartell Louis arm chairThe Louis dining chair is by no means new, but the way that it is still as prevalent in glossy magazines as even the former Kate Middleton shows that it has become the throne of our times. And, like Kate, just because it is slightly, well, common, doesn’t mean you should love it less – in fact that seems to heighten its appeal. That it is high design at affordable prices and that it comes in loud colours for an easy injection of personality into your room only make it a true modern classic: the chair of our hearts.

    Porcelain tea light holders

    So deceptively simple are these little bowls that you might be forgiven for dismissing them – until you notice the contrast between the smooth, serene exterior with the vibrant hues inside. A way to add colour for people who are slightly afraid of making bold statements, they work simply because of their simplicity and are, quite simply, beautiful.

    Rustic wall hooks

    Rustic Wall hooksI’ve been trying to prove that shabby chic is back for a couple of seasons now, and nothing aids my point better than these three wall hooks. But this time around, the emphasis is far less on shabby, and more on chic. So whilst there’s still an element of distressed woodwork, the use of strong colour shows that you didn’t just find them in the back of a barn somewhere but are using them as part of a considered aesthetic. Should you actually be a farmer living the countryside dream they make the perfect place to hang your straw hat after a busy day with the cows or, for the rest of us, they’ll do nicely to help us dream of a time when the journey to work is on a tractor rather than the tube.

    Rose rug

    Rose RugChintz has a lot to answer for. Like a GM-produced bumper crop it took over the world of floral prints and strangled the life out of the look, making it seem old, and fusty. Now flowers are back, and as this rug shows, traditional prints don’t have to be outdated. Because the design is so familiar, they’re a good way of going big on colour without seeming threatening – perfect for shrinking violets.

    Pigeon hole wall shelf unit

    Pigeon Hole Wall Shelf UnitRemember that episode of Friends where Rachel and Phoebe bought an apothecary table? Well, this is the new decade’s version – an apothecary wall hanging storage unit. And, as Pheobe said, you can just imagine this is where they kept all the stuff to make their potions. Nowadays, however, it will help to imbue anything you’ve collected with a sense of history, and will help your modern knick knacks look like they’re in with the old.
