On a somewhat unrelated topic, I want to know your opinion… I know a bunch of you have taken cooking classes, some of you have also done full cooking programs at a chef school, (CIA or otherwise) and I want to know what you thought of it. What were you looking to get out of it and was it just for personal enjoyment or were you looking for a career? There are going to be some changes going on here in the next few months, I’m just not sure what those changes are going to be. Unrelated to cooking altogether, has anyone taught English in a foreign country?
Bri’s Tropical Mango Treat
1 ½ cups plain yogurt
1 mango, peeled and sliced
1 cup water
¼ cup honey
1 inch ginger, sliced
Juice of 1 lime
Drizzle of banana
Strain yogurt through cheesecloth, preferably in the fridge overnight so that it gets nice and thick. In a small pot, bring water, honey, ginger and lime juice to a boil, stir to dissolve the honey and then reduce heat to a simmer. Add in the mango slices and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove mango from the syrup and roughly chop. Strain the syrup and reserve. In a small bowl combine the strained yogurt with a few spoonfuls of the syrup and whisk together. Layer the yogurt and mango pieces in a glass and drizzle with Banana Malibu liqueur. Serve as is or chill first. Makes 1 generous serving or 2 regular ones. You can then use the extra syrup to make drinks or flavoured water.
