CC#26:Classic mince and onion pie

This recipe has English mustard, Marmite, Worcestershire sauce, with a cube of beef stock for the seasonings.
I made the savory shortcrust pastry the night before. It was easy to switch from sweet crust to savory by replacing the sugar with grated cheddar (I used Parmesan).
Delicious!

CC#26: Home made Onigiri

Simple ten grains rice onigiri with dried mushroom floss and nori seaweed strip.

The above ten grains rice onigiri with vegetarian mushroom floss, and nori seaweed sheet was inspired by my latest cookbook,  Simply Onigiri by Sanade Inada. Her onigiri are hand shaped, but I used a plastic triangular rice mold which made it so much easier!

CC#26: Glazed lamb shanks

What I love about this recipe is that the shanks are cooked initially on the stove top, and finished in the oven for twenty minutes for the glazing part.
Monica served the shanks with a mash, but I served mine with ten-grains rice ball. This was my light lunch. Hubby had more rice balls along with a quick cook vegetables soup with the shanks.
I found this copy of Monica Galetti's Monica's Kitchen at Parkson at MyTown in Cheras. It has a foreword by Michel Roux Jr too. Not surprising as she works for him in London.
A well written Cookbook, instructions provided are easy to follow, and detailed!  She has given her own spin to many French traditional recipes to make them easy to execute at home.
