Feest (means "party" in Dutch language). This blog is all about the world we live in, Food, Feasting and other Random Freakin Fabulous Funtage.

I recently set myself a challenge that will see me cook every single recipe from one of the many cookbooks I own. To keep it fun and economical I choose the recipes from the book "Homemade" at random.

Depending on what I have in my larder or what is being delivered in the organic box scheme, I aim for a new recipe every other day.

If you like to challenge me on my journey please suggest your recipe from the book and I will post you the results. I hope you enjoy my blog and temporary topic deviation.

Recipe # 35 - Autumn Salad with Hazelnuts, Fried Mushrooms & Yoghurt Dressing

Page 50, Homemade, Yvette van Boven, Murdoch Books, Australia.

This recipe made a wonderful starter. I served it with fresh bread and my guests all wanted seconds. Very tasty and could easily be converted to make a vegan recipe.
