HCP Feb 2011

Postby TerryL » Fri Feb 04, 2011 10:40 pm

OK, starting tomorrow is the February regular cooking weekend at HCP. I don't promise anything, too much depends on me remembering, the phone network signal strength and other factors, but what I am going to try and do is upload the odd picture from my mobile phone to a Picasa album I've created (ignore the test upload of Hammersmith bus station) at

https://picasaweb.google.com/terry.love.uk/HCPFeb2011#

I don't know if it'll work, if there'll be anything interesting going on, and not everything uploaded could be kitchen based. I also wonder how my phone battery is going to hold out with all the potential usage.

OK, that didn't work then.

As it happens, no a lot was lost because it was a fairly quiet, run of the mill, day and if you want to see people cooking on the stove or turning the spit look at any of my other Hampton Court Weekend galleries on my Picasa site.

High points?

1) Robin's got a new hat

2 ) Ross has had a haircut

3) Barry and Barry were back in drah... errrm, sorry, Tudor costume.


It was a press day, lots of visitors with passes, cameras and notepads, someone if trying to drum up custom I think

- 3 joints on the spit (flank of beef)

- Robin did the Perre (mushy peas dish) with yellow split peas (reports from Jorge were that is was beautiful)

- Marc H seemed to do some syrup to do some pears in (maybe he'll do the pairs tomorrow)

- Robert did 3 versions of arbelettes (?) - a sort of cheese, custardy, scrambled eggs thing.

- David was working on his ship (it's got masts and a bowspit now)

- Barry and Barry minced some beef and made pelettes (or Tudor sausage - we'd call them burgers) over a charcoal brazier

- Ross roasted (spelled by .)

- . and Jorge had table setting out and did the answer questions about Tudor food and eating thing

- Richard... Hey, TC, you seemed to be tied up with other things most of the day


All told, a quiet day after the Christmas extravaganza

OK, I did hear rumours to that effect but I don't always believe rumours from those sources... Nice one (for you).

As there's nothing too exciting I'm putting off processing all the rest of the images for today, I'll post a note pointing to the galery where I post them when they are done. I'm off for a snack and mug of tea before bedtime.

I enjoyed the pictures of HCP. I got to visit in September and was delighted. I could have spent much longer than I did and will make my next visit during a weekend cooking event.

OK some quickly edited images from yesterday before I set off again...

Image
The new "clean cut" look sported by Ross


Image
Marc H chatting to some early visitors while Richard and Robin (in a new hat) start loading the spit, and Jorge stands watching.


Image
David, less animated than usual, talking (ernestly) to someone. Notice the ship has some masts now and other decorations.


Image
In the prep kitchen, Barry P and Barry C, back in Tudor times, preparing to make some pelettes of beef (burgers) to cook on their charcoal brazier.


Image
I can't remember what Richard (gesturing) and Robin (posing) were talking to someone about but it got Robert (background) grinning.


Image
Marc 'M' not looking happy with his portion of meat (a resin cast actually that was left out and should have been put away)


Image
Barry C, an unusual shot of him appearing to be doing something (cooking burgers). He didn't want me to post it as it might spoil his rep for not doing anything, but I'll risk it as he doesn't have internet at home where he lives.


Image
And finally for now, Robert, getting to do some cooking again. He made 3 versions of arbalettes (?), all noticable different, but I did notice that version 2 is the one he scoffed all of.


You can see them larger at

https://picasaweb.google.com/terry.love ... ryWeekend#

and that's also where I'll post the rest, plus any I take today, when I get around to it.

Oh, the sadness of the silhouette of the shorn sheep (aka Ross). The poster boy is gone... ;-)

Three versions of arbolettys? Now this would be interesting to hear about. Wonder if he or someone would post what was done, what difference was found, impressions of the completed dish, why X was done rather than Y...
