In the Kitchen this week

 Earlier this week we made a beef ragu, which is a fancy bolognese, where the beef and veg have been slow cooked in the oven for 3-5hrs until the meat falls apart in the sauce. We used lots of veg including the last of the zucchinis and eggplants, also carrots and onions and garlic from the garden, oh! And plenty of herbs, fresh and dried from our garden too!
We have made lasagna and pasta -spaghetti and pici. Pici is hand rolled and is excellent for holding sauces such as ragu/bolognese.
#MathsInTheKitchen – We have discussed RATIO’S, through making white sauce/Béchamel and in making a basic pasta dough eg. For every 100g flour we use 1 egg, for pasta.
