My Opa was a dutch pastry chef. We used to visit him regularly on weekends as kids and whenever we came over, he always had something sitting there waiting for us. I fondly remember his shortbread, sitting in a little tin on the coffee table. Opa was baking right up until the day he passed away, well into his 90's, so as a tribute to him and also for the nostalgia, I also make his shortbread recipe on a regular basis.
They contain the normal butter, sugar, flour ratio but are made completely by hand with all organic ingredients, sprinkled with raw sugar and fork pressed... plus a little bit of lemon rind to remind me of Opa's back garden, bursting with lemon trees.
I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
Ingredients: Butter, sugar, flour, lemon rind
Contains: Milk and Milk Products, Cereals containing gluten and their products including wheat, rye, barley, oats, spelt
About your cook, Michelle (Fairlight)
I'm a passionate home cook, recruitment manager and new mum who also has a side business 'Forage Sydney' hosting rogue dinner party dining experiences. There's nothing better than using seasonal, organic or free range ingredients to create delicious and nutritious food; this is what I strive to do both at home and for others. My food style is mixed, having travelled to many countries and sampling lots of interesting food, I tend to take inspiration from these experiences as a whole rather than pinpoint a specific cuisine, as long as it's tasty and makes you feel good! My Opa was a Dutch pastry chef so I have a penchant for both sweet and savoury. I'm looking forward to creating delicious meals for you, your friends and family.
