Nigel Slater Dish of the Month – January Round Up
Many thanks to all the wonderful bloggers who entered January’s Dish of the Month
. This is the first blog challenge I have run, other than occasional hosting for others. My co-host Sue from A little bit of Heaven on a Plate
has been very active tweeting and pinning to our shared Dish of the Month Pinterest board.
I’m not promising that there will be a round up every month but as this is the first month of the challenge, I wanted to say thank you and feature the amazing variety of Nigel Slater recipes you have all made.
One of the things I like best is that many people have made the dishes their own by adapting them to the ingredients they had or their own personal tastes. This is a feature of Nigel’s cooking philosophy, which I think makes his recipes so appealing to me and it seems to you too.
First up is Camilla from Fab Food 4 All with this tasty looking Bacon Wrapped Salmon
A creamy parsley risotto and delicate parmesan crisps is the offering from my co-host, Sue at A little bit of heaven on a plate
A soup of bacon and celeriac is my recipe which comes from The Kitchen Diaries II is my offering from Farmersgirl Kitchen.
This Mincemeat Cheesecake attracted the attention of Mr Nigel Slater himself when Claire at Foodie Quine tweeted about it.
In Elizabeth’s Kitchen, a beautiful dish of Shetland lamb was slowly cooked, to Nigel’s instructions, until it fell off the bone.
Choclette at Chocolate Log Blog made Nigel’s Chocolate and Hazelnut cookies which she describes as “chocolate brownies in biscuit form”.
Karen at Lavender and Lovage made a Winter Salad and said “My salad is a VERY loose adaptation of Nigel Slater’s recipe from “The Kitchen Diaries”, the first one.”
Rachel at Marmaduke Scarlet made these delicious looking Almond, Marzipan and Berry Cakes from The Kitchen Diaries II.
Chickpea Fritters with Beetroot Tzatsiki is the entry from Jane at Onions and Paper, it’s a recipe in Nigel Slater’s Tender volume 1 and was found by Jane in her search for a different recipe altogether!
The fabulously named Hangover Salad is the recipe made by London Busy Body which was served as an accompaniment to venison rather than with the beef in the original.
Dish Dom over at Belleau Kitchen made his own version of Nigel’s aubergine and bean hotpot, adding a cheesy broccoli and cauliflower crust.

r, who found the recipe in the January Chapter of The Kitchen Diaries 1.

and features a version of Nigel’s ‘Bright Vegetable Stew’
