And I thought Australians were sober and down to earth and here
they offer us a party dessert that borders on to the ultra-decadent.
But when you think of it, we all deserve a little decadence from
time to time, don’t we

Medieval Monday – Almond Leach / Mandel Leach

A dessert recipe from the Tudor era found on CookIt!
Medieval Monday – Almond Leach / Mandel Leach

Leach is a kind of milk jelly a little like a blancmange. There are milk versions but this one was a dish for Lent when the Tudors would not use milk. Almond milk was used during Lent instead. This is a high table dish for a gentry family and is served attractively. It is time consuming to make requiring setting time and a swift hand when turning out.The top half of the leach is coloured with red wine.

Spanish Cream / Spansk Krem

The recipes and instructions in these old cookbooks from the 1920s are so short and to the point that if housewives and cooks from back then had a chance to take a look in today’s cookbooks with all their explanations and pictures and what have you, they would probably thing we are all right behind the barn as they say in the Yorkshire Dales.

I have to confess that I have never been particularly excited about dessert gellies. Even as  a child, I had to drown them in custard sauce to manage to get them down. But mousse on the other hand, now we’re talking dessert – Ted

Jane Austen’s Flummery

A dessert recipe inspired by Jane Austen’s novels
found in historyextra.com
Jane Austen recipes _Dinner with Mr Darcy - Flummery_post

Whether it’s breakfast at Northanger Abbey, tea and cake at Mansfield Park, or one of Mrs Bennet’s dinners to impress, food is an important theme in Jane Austen’s novels. And now, Austen fans can recreate the dishes featured in the author’s works, thanks to new book “Dinner with Mr Darcy” by Pen Vogler

Flummery is a white jelly, which was set in elegant molds or as shapes in clear jelly. Its delicate, creamy taste goes particularly well with rhubarb, strawberries, and raspberries. A modern version would be to add the puréed fruit to the ingredients, taking away the same volume of water.

Chocolate and Coffee Bavarois / Sjokolade og Kaffe Bavarois

A rather posh dessert recipe found in Valerie Barrett’s
“The Chocolate Book” published in 1987
chocolate and coffee bavarois_post

000_recipe_eng  traditional badge dessert_flat  000_recipe_nor

Bavarois or Bavarian cream is a classic dessert that was included in the repertoire of chef Marie-Antoine Carême, who is sometimes credited with it. It was named in the early 19th century for Bavaria or, perhaps more likely in the history of haute cuisine, for a particularly distinguished visiting Bavarian, such as a Wittelsbach. Escoffier declared that Bavarois would be more properly Moscovite, owing to its preparation, in the days before mechanical refrigeration, by being made in a “hermetically sealed” mold that was plunged into salted, crushed ice to set — hence “Muscovite”.”Pannacotta”, the Italian dessert of sweetened cream thickened with gelatin and molded is comparable.

True Bavarian creams first appeared in the U.S. in Boston Cooking School cookbooks, by Mrs D.A. Lincoln, 1884, and by Fannie Merritt Farmer, 1896. The Fannie Farmer Cookbook offers a “Bavarian Cream”.

Lime Chiffon Pie / Lime Chiffon Pai

A recipe from “The Fifty States Cookbook” published in 1977lime chiffon pie_post

traditional badge americanA chiffon pie is a type of pie that consists of a special type of airy mousse-like filling in a crust. The filling is typically produced by folding meringue and/or whipped cream into a mixture resembling fruit curd (most commonly lemon) that has been thickened with unflavored gelatin. This filling is then put into a pre-baked pie shell of variable composition. This same technique can also be used with canned pumpkin to produce pumpkin chiffon pie.
