VolAuVents

The easiest way to take something that already tastes good, and make it even better is to smother it in cheese and possibly deep fry it – but if you’re looking to do the same while adding a touch of class, nothing works like a vol-au-vent. Vols-au-vent are small pasty casing, usually made by placing two discs of puff pastry atop one another – only the top one has a hole cut out of it, so that when it bakes, it makes a deliciously pastry bowl.

They’re usually filled with mushrooms, chicken or some combination of both, but can really be used for just about anything. Make them small, and you have delightful canapes. Make them larger, and you’ve got a whole meal. I usually do them wither with a wild mushroom filling, or something even more French: Blanquette de veau.

WE NOW INTERRUPT OUR REGULARLY SCHEDULE PROGRAMMING WITH A MESSAGE FROM THAT GINGER GUY:

“Every year the ginger twat in Cape Town gathers the local Lazygamer orcs, or ‘readers’ for an afternoon of beer, food and jovial conversation. We discuss things like ‘why is the PS4 being forced into a state of Obsolescence’, ‘how about that CoD game’ or even ‘what colour panties does Geoff wear on a Thursday night.’

If these things titillate you as much as they do me, come join us at the River Club in Observatory, Cape Town at 13:00 on Saturday the 10th of September.”

For reference, it’s pastel blue.

Here’s the news we didn’t post because we were trying to see if we could trade Darryn for a platter of gougères.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
