I Heart My Friends: Tartine Trifle by Rice & Wheat


Sep

We interrupt these somewhat regular posts of late to bring you a guest post all the way from San Francisco! Introducing the wonderful Angi from Rice & Wheat!

Angi & I first met through Project Food Blog last year but we really bonded over our infamous muffcakes, a bad word “created” on Twitter and made delicious by ourselves and three other blogger buddies.

When I was in San Francisco I had the immense pleasure of hanging out with Angi, her hubs Nathan and her kitty Toro and a kinder soul, whom I have bonded with instantly, I have never met; of course I asked her to do a guest for me. Not only did she agree wholeheartedly, she sent over this incredible looking trifle! So enough from me, let’s get to Angi and her trifle or, more specifically, her version of San Francisco’s Tartine Bakery’s trifle – yum. Thanks Angi!


When Jackie asked me to do a guest post here on I Am a Feeder, it didn’t take me long to decide to make a trifle because after all, doesn’t it just seemed appropriate to make my favorite British dessert for my favorite British blogger?? But hehe, I have to admit I also had an ulterior motive in mind. You see, I’ve had my eye on the trifle recipe from the Tartine cookbook for a while and well, just needed the perfect excuse to test it out. So… thank you Jackie! But hey, Jackie and I totally had lunch at Tartine when she came to visit San Francisco, so it’s totally 100% appropriate, don’t you think?

Summer, She Is Here

This week I officially finished all of my work at University (finally) and have spent the past couple of days drinking, drinking, and, er, drinking. I did make a lovely roast pork with beautiful potatoes dauphinoise last night, but um, I was drunk. So I didn’t take photos. Sorry.

HOWEVER. I do have something beautiful for you! The past few days have been super hot. I’m talking 30 degrees celsius hot. It’s been lovely. And today is my last day in the house I’ve lived in all year with my lovely housemates Jess and Nat, so I thought we should have a cream tea party to celebrate.

Cream teas are quintessentially British. Along with strawberries. And usually you have them when you’re sitting outside in a sunny spot which will quickly turn into a thunderstorm as soon as you take your first bite of the glorious scone, clotted cream and jam.
