A FOODIE QUIZ THINGY

Ten Questions : let’s find out how spicy the Foodie bloggers are.
Let me know when you’ve posted.
Was there a defining moment, or did you always know that you were a foodie?

I can remember, as a very little girl, making little mud cakes in the garden and decorating them with flowers.

What would you do with 3 courgettes; an apple, an onion, a stick of butter and one cup of flour. You may add one ingredient, plus water.

I’d use the flour and water to make a base, chop the courgettes, apple and onion and mix them with the butter. Sprinkle with cayenne pepper and bake a tart.

What is the most ghastly tasting thing you have ever eaten?

My daughter made me breakfast on Mothers Day.  There was something red on the plate and I couldn’t figure out what it was; possibly a baked strawberry topped with chopped capers.

What is the ugliest looking thing you have ever eaten?

An unidentifiable, slimy thing (in Hong Kong), I think it may have been a slug.

Assuming you were stranded on an island, there is fire, water and provisions. What single cooking utensil would you want to have with you?

My set of Joseph Joseph knives and chopping boards.

What sign of the Zodiac are you and do you think it influences your cooking character?

Capricorn, yes; I am a perfectionist.

Are you a fanatically tidy or shamefully messy in the kitchen?
Quite tidy.
How many frying pans do you own?
Four, plus a tiny one shaped like a bear’s face; I use it to make omelettes for my daughter.
What is your all time dream kitchen appliance to own?

A shiny, red KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer from Yuppiechef, but everyone already knows this …
Have you ever had rumpy-pumpy (slap & tickle) in a kitchen?

Alas, no and the opportunity, sadly, has come and gone… don’t want to scare the dogs.

  1. 1) I’m not a foodie, I’ll let you know if it ever happens
    2) I’d make courgette bread/scone/whatever it came out as 😉
    3) I can’t remember, possibly blocked it out as one does with nasty memories
    4) As for 3. I’m sure if I see it again I’ll remember and say “no thank you”.
    5) Mr Delivery, then he could rescue me
    6) I’m a Sagittarian, and yes it has influenced me, I’m a happy go lucky cook
    7) Pretty messy, I pile everything into the sink and pray someone else will do the clean-up
    8) Quite a few. I have a very old large enamelled one that still makes good pancakes. I have a smallish one that doesn’t stick (from Woolworths) a one-egg one for scramble that also doesn’t stick. Then there are “the others” that all stick and are not really great.
    9) A personal chef
    10) Yes, uncomfortable.

    1. Was there a defying moment, or did you always know that you were a foodie?
