April has been rather a mixed month, starting very cold and, while I know it has been warm in the south of England, here in Scotland we have only had couple of dry sunny days with a high of 14C!
However, in April’s Dish of the Month kitchens, there has been much activity and many delicious dishes.
In Elizabeth’s Kitchen Aubergine Tarts were on the menu and here is what Elizabeth says about them “The aubergine puree has a gorgeous flavour and texture and when combined
with the anchovies, capers and cheese pastry – oh yes, mouth-wateringly
My own entry is Chicken with olives and lemon from the April chapter of the Kitchen Diaries II a very simple and delicious supper dish.
My friend and co-host of Dish of the Month, Sue at A little bit of Heaven on a Plate made a stunning Parfait of Lemon and Orange. Sue made her own meringues and, because they were homemade, they were nice and mallowy in the
centre and crunchy on the outside, adding to the overall loveliness
of the finished parfait.
