Dish of the Month (Cooking the Recipes of Nigel Slater) October Round Up

The first delicious Dish of the Month was beautifully presented by Dom from Belleau Kitchen.  Upside Down Banoffee Shortcake is a Nigel Slater recipe that Dom found on the Guardian website and what a great find.

Deon Van Schalkwyk is the food blogger behind Food Jam and a recent convert to Nigel's Kitchen Diaries II, which is where this super easy and totally delicious Spelt and Cider Loaf recipe is to be found. 

My own contribution to Dish of the Month is this dish of Duck Legs with Bramble Gin and Duck Fat Potatoes, adapted to suit my ingredients from a recipe in Kitchen Diaries II.

Co-host of Dish of the Month, Sue at A little Bit of Heaven on a Plate indulged in this gloriously autumnal Pear and Chocolate Crumble and was thrilled to receive some birthday greetings on Twitter from Mr Nigel Slater himself!

Over the past few weeks, Karen of Lavender and Lovage fame has been travelling all over the UK and has not long got back to her home in France, and yet she still managed to russle up some homemade bread and this Welsh Rabbit for her Sunday Brunch.  This recipe of Nigel's was found on the Country Life website - he does get about, doesn't he?  Oh just like Karen lol!

I'll be back with the linky for November's Dish of the Month on Friday - get your thinking caps on and join us cooking and baking the recipes of Nigel Slater.
