Cooking, Baking and Mixing

July 5, 2010 at 9:58 am (Drink, Entertainment, Food, Friends)

For some reason I keep forgetting to take pics of the 4392068332693468 things I’m making lately in terms of consummables. Everything from Japanese sponge cake (times 3 since I can’t get it right), granita, pavlova, cheesecake, etc. Food-wise, stuffed potatoes and curry and roasts and sautes….DRINKS.

The list of things to make on/before the 10th, for Hikochan’s bbq bday party:
sushi (westcoast pockets)
yakitori (I really want to make Japanese-style skewers…but I’ll see how much time I have)

croquembouche (MUBOU.)
cake (what kind of cake it will be is a badly kept secret)

Grape Smash
Spiked Strawberry Lemonade
Lychee White Sangria

Ok, since this is like mega-work and I’m starting to panic just by looking at this huge list of self-imposed consummables-creation (ahhh I remember the times Shin used to brew all of Nabz’s slim pots…), I will make a to-do list in roughly chronological order:

DAY BEFORE=
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ALL INGREDIENTS. The list includes a SHITTON of eggs, ripe avocado, smoked salmon, sprouts, chicken, green onion, more eggs, 1L whipcream, the fruit (especially strawberries, blueberries, grapes, mango, lemons, limes, kiwi, green apples), elderflower water, Ceres grape juice, maybe some strawberry or raspberry liqueur (or stoli raz?) and the vodka/sauv blanc. And eggs.
If I want to use raspberries, pick those. Also blueberries if they’re ripe.
Pick the roses etc, refrigerate.
Marinade the chicken.
Soak the bamboo skewers overnight in water.
Make sushi rice.
Freeze the grapes.
Make about 1L of simple syrup.
Make strawberry compote, puree and lemon extract.
Make the spiked strawblemonade concentrate, refrigerate.
Make the custard cream.

THE DAY OF:
Make the cake layers, let cool.
Make the puffs, let cool.
Use the strawblemon concentrate and make the Spiked Lemonade, FREEZE.
Make the Grape Smash and refrigerate.
Make the sangria, refrigerate.
Make the skewers.
Make the sushi pockets.
Make the whip cream.
Stuff the puffs with custard.
Make the towerpuffs.
Assemble the cake.
Beg a ride from the father.

The most important point is the last of course. FORGET bussing with this much food/drink on me. And Hikochan will probably be busy with his own setting up. I’ll keep adding to this list as I remember forgotten ingredients and steps…. AHHHHH. *mental note* we’re talking about using at least a dozen, maybe two dozen eggs here. LOL. Just make sure to wake up at like 9 am latest. You can always nap in Hikochan’s bed during the party, ahaha.
