by mel_liew_ming_li

--------

     In our next chapter of Come Cook With Us, we want to showcase some of Faerieland's most delicious edibles. Every dish tastes magical (literally!), as the faeries who make the food in Faerieland often sprinkle a bit of faerie dust or cast magic spells onto their creations. Therefore, if you want to recreate some classics with a twist, then try one of these recipes below!

     

     Pink Mashed Potatoes

     These mashed potatoes are really quite sweet tasting.

     Ingredients (to serve 4 people):

     1kg Battle Potatoes

     1 carton of Low Fat Milk

     1 teaspoon of salt

     200g Cheese, grated

     salt and pepper, to taste

     1 vial of pink food colouring

     1/2 cup of salted butter

     1/2 cup of sour cream

     Instructions:

     Peel off the skins on your Battle Potatoes and quarter them. Place the potatoes into a big pot of boiling water and boil the them over medium heat until they are soft (use a fork to pierce the potato pieces occasionally). When the potatoes are ready, drain them of water and then place them in a bowl. Add 2/3 of the carton of Low Fat Milk, grated Cheese, salted butter and sour cream. Mash the potatoes with the ingredients and then proceed to add the vial of pink food colouring. Further mash until the mashed potatoes are smooth, add salt and pepper to taste, then call upon a Bottled Faerie for a pair of magical faerie wings to decorate your dish!

     

     Heavenly Roast Turkey

     This succulent turkey tastes simply divine!

     Ingredients:

     1 turkey (uncooked)

     Two Garlic Bulbs

     300g unsalted butter

     1 Lemon

     Rosemary sprigs

     1 vial of pink food colouring

     1 Onion

     salt and pepper, to taste

     Instructions:

     To make the roast turkey marinade, melt the butter, along with the juice of one Lemon and the rosemary sprigs in a sauce pan. Let it cool down. Add the vial of pink food colouring. Chop up your Garlic Bulbs into small chunks and add to the marinade. Put the turkey on a roasting pan and rub down with salt and pepper. Take a basting brush and brush the outside of the turkey with the butter and rosemary mixture.

     Preheat the oven to 180C, then put the turkey into the oven and roast for about 2 hours. Remove the turkey from the oven and let it rest for approximately 15 to 20 minutes.

     To give your Roast Turkey that Heavenly look, you may want to consider creating faerie wings that stick onto the turkey with leftover orange peels! The food colouring will also add a lovely pink sheen to your turkey, making your dish look magical!

     Lemon Faerie Mousse

     Lashings of smooth lemon mousse drizzled with hot caramel sauce.

Ingredients:

     3 large whole eggs

     3 large eggs yolks

     3 large egg whites

     2 teaspoons grated lemon zest

     1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (approx. 4 lemons)

     salt and sugar

     2 cups heavy cream

     1/2 cup bottled lemon curd stored at room temperature

     caramel sauce

     1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

     Instructions:

     For the mousse, whisk together the 3 whole eggs, 3 egg yolks, 1 cup of sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, and a pinch of kosher salt in a bowl. Place the bowl over a simmering pot of water on the stove and stir the mixture constantly with a wooden spoon for approximately 10 to 12 minutes, so that the mixture takes on a pudding-like consistency. Take the bowl off and set it aside for 15 minutes to cool down. Then cover and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.

     Pour half the egg whites and add a pinch of salt into a bowl, then mix on high speed. Add 2 tablespoons of sugar and continue to mix until the egg whites are stiff and shiny. Using a spatula, carefully fold the stiffened egg white mixture into the cold lemon mixture. Using the same bowl mixing bowl, pour in 1 cup of heavy cream and mix on high speed until stiff peaks form. Carefully fold the cream mixture into the lemon mixture. Fold in the lemon curd, pour the entire mixture into a deep souffle dish, and set aside.

     For the mousse topping, whip together 1 cup of cold heavy cream, 1 tablespoon of sugar, and 1/2 a teaspoon of pure vanilla extract on medium speed, gradually increasing speed until stiff peaks form. Spoon the whipped cream into a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip. To complete the mousse, pipe out the whipped topping onto the lemon mixture to decorate then drizzle hot caramel sauce on top just before serving!

     We guarantee that serving any one of these Faerieland favourites at your next dinner party will cause you to be admired by all your guests, who will proceed to crown you as the next Faerie Queen of cooking.
