60 weeks of challenge

Posted on January 7, 2020 at 4:25 AM

Nick’s 60th Challenge

At midnight during our New Year celebrations in the Pavilion, with Jools Holland’s Hootenanay on in the background, Suzi presented me with my 60th year challenge. Admittedly I am not yet in my 60th year – that comes in about 7 weeks – but the slip of paper contained 60 challenges. I had long bemoaned that whilst I can cook to a reasonable level, my skills centred around a few key basics and baking.

The challenge was designed to stretch my knowledge and skills and to introduce ideas, recipes and food I had never heard of, let alone cook. The challenge requires a weekly dish to be produced. In some cases, such as in sugar work, the skills will have to be put into a dish of my choice.

What on earth is Bulgogi or Luqaimat? Part of the challenge means that I must research the dishes, look at their histories and select a recipe from the myriad of recipes available. So I am going to produce a weekly blog of the background and preparation and the result with photos and videos, as well as reviews from my biggest critic - Suzi!

Why do this? Good question! Mainly because I want to stretch myself and because sometimes we eat out and think ‘We could have done that better at home’ and I want to make that true more often!

It’s also about lifestyle. As one approaches a big milestone, I want to make sure that the second half of my life(!!) is as good as the first and this is just part of making sure that in 2020 and 2021 I move forward, physically and mentally. Having had a major scare in 2019 I want to make sure that it doesn’t happen again, and I don’t unduly stress my loved ones.
