A couple of Sunday’s ago we all went off to London and whilst the boys had fun at the Cinema Molly-May and me meet up with the lovely Ruth and Kip and their kids to have a “Dinner in Disguise” morning at the Miele Gallery in the heart of London.
In all honesty! I am not a good cook! No that’s a lie, i am a RUBBISH cook!
I really would like to improve my cooking skills (any cookery classes going send them my way!)
so my boys and MM can have something else then my short list of Mummy Dishes like Spag Bol, Lasagne, Spaghetti Carbonara and slow cooker chicken!!
But all is not lost!
I am pretty decent Baker not to GBBO standard of course, but i can do a mean Marble cake!!
Coming from Germany i was already familiar of the Miele brand and there are quite a few Miele appliances in my parents house! but it was interesting to check out their brand new Miele Steam Oven Range and sample some healthy food!
Whilst we waited for the food we started off with decoration some cupcakes with a twist (they where coloured with beetroot!)
As a starter the Miele Chefs dished us up Brussels Sprout Croquettes with green pesto fresh out of the steam oven cooked in 20 minutes and they tasted very delicious so much so that i eat them before taking a picture to show you!
For our main we decorated our very own little pizza with a choice of cauliflower or beetroot base, i have to admit i was very sceptical with the beetroot base because i normally don’t eat beetroot but i was more then pleasantly surprise that it was my favourite out of both! We also tried some meatballs with courgette and carrot spaghetti.
My finished mini pizzas before they headed into the Miele Steam Oven:
And because there is always room for desert we where all in agreement that the Avocado Chocolate Mouse was divine! Avocado & Chocolate i hear you say?
Believe me it does work! This is the 2. time i tried it my cousin did make it a few month back for our Cousin Brunch when i went to Germany and don’t ask me how but you can hardly taste the avocado and its such a healthy treat!
I thought i share the receipt with you so you can try it out yourself:
At the end of the Event the Miele Team gave us a fabulous Goodies Bag full of receipts of all the dishes we have been served today as well as a cute Miele Toy hoover for Molly-May to help me keep my house clean. She is a little bit too small for it now so i put it away for her to enjoy next year!
And as a little treat for Mummy we received a box with a Surprise Lemon Drizzle Cake!
I shared mine with the family when i got home and let them all have a guess what the secret ingredient was and non of them knew that the cake was actually baked with mashed potato!!
But we where all in agreement that it was rather tasty and i have been asked to make it for the next family gathering!
And now i let you in on a little secret! The Miele Gallery in London has got some fabulous Creative Living Courses going on you can find some more details on their website!
I personally would love to go on the Steam School Course to learn more about cooking with steam!
(Something for my Christmas Wish List Mr. C.??)
I know for a fact that once we finally moved from our flat into our own house that a Miele Steam oven is high on my must have list for my new kitchen!!!
