Children of the World Plates and Pistachio Cakes

My Kitchen is very quiet at the moment, not a lot going on. 

I do however have something to share that I was very pleased with.  I picked up these gorgeous plates from a charity shop a little while back.   
These are a collection from Villeroy & Boch called 'Children of the World'.  A quick internet search showed me that there are 12 of them, but I am content with what I have. 
 I found some energy to make some Pistachio cakes over the weekend.
The Pistachio Cake recipe comes from Dina Begum's Brick Lane Cookbook: Food From Everywhere.  The little cakes were dense and flavourful and were absolutely delightful to eat.  D loved them.  They were meant to get a glaze, but I decided to give that a miss.  

By the way, I have been to Brick Lane - see here - it was mostly about the graffiti art.
Anyway, I  am sharing this simple blog post with Sherry's Pickings for the In My Kitchen series, I look forward to seeing what you have lurking in your kitchen cupboards or to see whats new.

  5. Hi Shaheen,
    You asked about the leek and goat cheese terrine I published recently. I mainly followed a recipe from the French magazine Marie Claire, which is in French, but here is the link:

    Let me know if you want me to translate it. It's not really complicated.

  6. Your cakes look great on your new plate. I think there is more baking in your kitchen than mine lately (though I made a bstch of bread!) and if we didn't have birthdays I wouldn't have baked for months! Hope things are going ok.
