#FoodhallTestKitchen: What’s the best technique for the perfect #pesto? @padmakkb tried 3 popular methods to get to bottom of this mystery! Ingredients: • Basil leaves - 1 cup • Pine nuts or cashews - 2 tbsp • Garlic - 2 cloves • Olive oil - 4 tbsp • Parmigiano Reggiano - 2 tbsp, grated • Salt to taste 1. Mortar & Pestle: There’s a reason why the #classics just work! This method of pesto-ing yields a smooth paste with chunky bits of #basil, and retains a vibrant green hue 2. Blender: This yielded a much smoother and more even particle size. Careful, though, because blending on high speed can easily take you from peak pesto consistency into puree territory! 3. Chopping Board: If you’re looking for a really rustic sauce with a bite to it, then using a knife and chopping board yields just that! Mincing the fresh ingredients and stirring through the oil creates more of a dressing than a pesto, but would work well on #pasta, or even grills and #roasts What’s your trick to a punchy pesto? Let us know in the comments below!

We’re eyeing @the_foodiediaries’s Honey Fridge Cake for a weekend #kitchenproject! The best part? It needs only 5 ingredients! What you’ll need: • Butter - ½ cup • Digestive or Marie biscuits - 200g • Dark chocolate - 300g, chopped • Honey - ⅓ cup • Hazelnuts - ⅔ cup, chopped Method: 1. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper 2. Crush the biscuits - you want the broken biscuits to be of different shapes and sizes (not fine crumbs). The easiest way is to put the biscuits in a ziplock bag and crush them with a rolling pin 3. Melt the #butter over the stove. You can go the extra mile by browning the butter - that is, keep stirring the melted butter until it starts to sizzle and foam. You will know the butter has browned once it starts to smell beautifully buttery, nutty and rich! 4. Next, remove the melted (brown) butter from the heat and stir in the chocolate and #honey until combined. You can keep a few spoonfuls aside for the glaze 5. Fold in the crushed biscuits and nuts, using a spatula to combine everything evenly 6. Spread the mixture into the prepared loaf tin, pressing down gently with the spatula. Spoon the reserved #chocolate glaze over the top 7. Refrigerate for a few hours, before slicing and serving. You can also store the sliced bars refrigerated in an airtight container and serve fridge-cold
