7 Recipes That Will Challenge You In the Kitchen This Week!



This is going to be a week of trying new things in the kitchen and challenging yourself to become a better cook. This post is inspired by another similar one over at Food52, looking for the recipes for the overachiever in all of us :)

Now we’re all about simplifying food and making it as easy as possible to get yourselves into the kitchen. That means that anyone can jump straight in to 99% of our recipes, but every so often we go all out and try to demystify something a little tougher! Here’s a list of sorted recipes that you should definitely be attempting this week if you fancy a bit of a challenge.

We just posted a whole bunch of tips for croissants, but they do need a lot of love and attention! They’re totally worth it though. Make this your weekend project and you won’t regret it.

Pork Pies
These are not the easiest things to make! It’s all about the hot pastry. You need to shape them around the bottom of a glass (or grab yourself a dolly) whilst they’re still warm, then firm them up in the fridge before sliding them back off and filling up! The skill is getting the pastry an even thickness. Make these on Sunday and enjoy them for Monday’s lunch! 

Ultimate BLT
Sandwiches are art. Fact. A lot of people don’t understand why you would go to so much trouble to make a sandwich, but we know you understand. Fresh sun dried tomato bread, made specially for the BLT, basil mayo to compliment everything perfectly and to protect your all important bread, and of course the best bacon, lettuce and tomato arranged with precision. Sandwiches are art.

Floating Islands

We actually simplified this process to make it a lot easier for everyone, but it’s still a bit of a challenge to get the perfect shape and texture. Plus, that sugar cage is the thing that will really make it impress your guests, and it can take a bit of practice to get perfect! Next time you have your mates round… This is your project.

We’ve done a couple of brioche recipes. Bread can be so simple, yet infuriatingly tough to perfect. Brioche is a little more difficult than a simple white loaf, but not something that you should be afraid to try. In fact, we’ve had loads of photos of our Chocolate Orange Twist through Instagram and they look awesome. Challenge yourself to make this one! 

We’ve done a lot of sushi too. We love it, you guys love it, but mastering it takes some doing! Sushi is one of those things that you may never quite master, but if you give it a go then you’ll definitely get better every time. The trick is not to be afraid of trying. While it might not be perfect, or authentic, you’ll definitely get something that tastes good, and after a few goes it’ll look good too. 

Chocolate Truffle Cake
And finally! For our ultimate series we certainly went all out on the recipes, but this one was probably the best of the bunch! Getting the layers of sponge, praline and truffle takes time, but like all these recipes it’s worth the effort.

Those are some of our more complicated recipes, but they’re not too scary right? So… What are you going to have a go at this week? Make sure you upload your efforts to Sorted Food and share them with us!
