The rules were simple...
East Coast Organic Milk - which is truly delicious. I had to have some with some chocolate chip cookies while I pondered a recipe. From Just Us! Coffee: a bag of organic sugar, a jar of Fair Trade organic instant Colombian coffee, one bar of dark and two bars of white Fair Trade certified organic chocolate. I'm not usually a white chocolate fan, but I have to admit that I'm glad there was an extra bar of it just for munching. I'm now addicted!
2)create an original recipe; which actually was a challenge for me... not really being a baker. An obvious choice would have been a drink or a custard...which made me think pudding...which somehow made me think of bread pudding. I don't know why or how I became obsessed with the idea. Especially since I've never made one...heck, I've never even eaten one. I've never let that stop me before so I pulled out a bunch of the baking books sitting on my shelves looking for some guidance. And since they all basically started with the same base - day old bread - I chose sweet brioche from my favorite local bakery - Julien's
Between the Bushes in the Annapolis Valley.(Boaz, Dov & my daughter hunting for the best bush - not sure who that other lady is with the cool hat). The eggs are local, free run eggs from Noggins Corner at the Halifax Seaport Market.
