For our September meeting, Newcastle CCC had the opportunity to visit one of the Ouseburn’s newest residents. Anna Hedworth (of The Grazer foodie fame) let us take over her newest venture for the evening. Situated in a couple of converted shipping containers Cook house is a quirky new venue and in Anna’s own words is ‘a space to eat, sit, rest, work and hang out, a kitchen that is homely, welcoming and informal’.
Well we certainly all felt that it was everything that Anna described and with a full house we sat down to a huge selection of cake.
We had a full house of cakes from our regulars with a few new faces as well which was great.
Iona made blackcurrant crumble cake, Lauren made a Peruvian corn cake, Rich made a rose and garden mint cake, Lisa made a courgette and blueberry cake with lemon buttercream, Lizzie made a bakewell cake, Terri made a raspberry and lemon polenta cake, Helen made a savoury cheese pistachio and prune cake, Kate made a coconut cake, Faye made a coffee and biscuit cake and Judit made a lemon cake. Phew, I think I’ve remembered all of them, and here’s some pictures of the finished articles as well!
Discussions were had on the recent EAT! food festival, eating al fresco, dinner parties, weddings and of course Great British Bake Off, Diana and THAT icecream incident. We all agreed that Iain’s icecream would never have set in time, we were all behind you poor Diana!
Thanks again to Anna for her wonderful hosting. We all can’t wait to come back to Cookhouse, turn the tables and sample some of her amazing cooking.
