A sponge is quite simple. You weigh ingredients, mix, and put it in the oven. With pastry, you manhandle it, shape it, fold it. You have to be involved with it; there is more jeopardy, more risk. But it’s like making a casserole. There’s a flurry of activity to begin with; then it’s about leaving it to rest. Paul HollywoodDespite the lack of flour on our supermarket shelves the following students were able to make some tasty pastry treats.

Anyone for Eton Mess?
The question, it turns out, isn’t ‘why’ it’s called Eton Mess, but whether it’s actually called ‘Eton Mess’ at all..
The generally-accepted story is that the strawberry, meringue and cream pudding was dropped at an Eton v Harrow cricket match in the late 19th century.
Rather than waste the food, it was simply scooped up off the floor and served, smashed to bits, in individual bowls. Country Life

restaurant Design Project using new CAD program
In the new era of fusion cooking and globe-trotting chefs, what makes or breaks a restaurant is not necessarily the food. It’s the design. After all, it’s the architect’s decision on things like decor, lighting effects, and where to place the kitchen that can mean the difference between an enjoyable dining experience or not. Rockwell

I had made a cushion to welcome my new rescue cat and as you can see in the background (the red cat cushion), he has adopted it! he also likes to rest his head on it when he sleeps.
I made it out of recycled material (an old hoodie) and he loves the fleecy material.
I am very excited to do Textiles next year..

I really enjoyed making this mask and found the YouTube video very helpful. a great project and so important at this time.
