In the two lockdowns we have had in the past year, Dr Cheung set up an online club that became an instant hit – Cookalong! Every Friday, Dr Cheung chose a recipe for us to cook and demonstrated it live, while we cooked along at home. The sessions alternated sweet and savoury recipes. Now, after two ’seasons’ and 14 recipes, the Cookalong has sadly come to an end. My personal favourite was the very last session, butterscotch chocolate chip blondies. They were delicious!
Other scrumptious things we cooked included recipes as diverse as pear and cinnamon ice cream, ham and cheese pinwheels, courgette fries with salsa, aubergine with Vietnamese nuoc cham, spicy sausage patties in lettuce cups, and peanut butter houmous.
Huge thanks to Dr Cheung and her brilliant recipes, Cookalong lit up an otherwise dull and isolated time for me!
