A very strange lobster thermidor!!
I have the most incorrigible sweet tooth! No matter how much I try to concentrate on making savoury pieces these days, I always seem to find myself making something sweet!
This last few days it has been Danish pastries & croissants, thanks to a commission order for trays of them...& I was actually thinking that I might get a chance to make some fish & shellfish for a change...it seems so long since I’ve had a chance (or the urge) to make non-sweet goodies that I was really looking forward to making a mini lobster thermidor...one of my favourite dishes of all time! Then the commission order for pastries came in & as I’m away from my “mini sweatshop” again for 3 weeks..babysitting again...I really had no choice but to concentrate on getting the pastries done.
At least I managed to put a little croissant prep board together which was fun to do & fill a basket with some of the left over pastries I’d made for the order.
Guess what I just had to eat once I'd completed these...the most delicious, hot buttery croissant & I have to confess that the only way to eat them is to split them open while they are still hot & fill them with butter & golden syrup. I hate to think of the calories in a croissant the way I eat it!!
