Aperitif of mint and apple cocktails with green sugar rims

Last Saturday night saw Round 3 of my friends and I’s colour-themed Come Dine With Me.  It was the night of the Greens, and after Come Dine With Me Orange last month and my partner and I’s Come Dine With Me Yellow the month before that, the Green Team (Jenny and Frances) had their work cut out for them.

As you can see from the pics, they fulfilled their brief very well and provided us with a lovely evening of food.  Good work!  Maybe too good!

Asparagus with scallops and pancetta, smothered in a Hollandaise sauce


Raisin glace (frozen grapes as a sorbet substitute, genuinely really refreshing)

Loin of Lamb in Crisp Potato Crust with Pea & Mint Purée andTarragon Jus accompanied by Wilted Spinach and Champ

Warm Chocolate Brownies with Homemade Pistachio Ice-cream

Green vodka jelly shots.  Needless to say, the night got well…blurry after these little firecrackers.

All in all, a great night.  Bring on Come Dine With Me Red coming up next!
