Day 16 – ‘Bradley’s Basement’s Advent Calendar 2020

Hello everyone! 🙂

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!

It’s Day 16 of ‘Bradley’s Basement’s Advent Calendar 2020.

Fancy cooking a lasagne?

That’s what Santa Cuddles is trying to do as he looks in ‘The Doctor Who Cookbook’ by Gary Downie. I had this cookbook for Christmas last year and have not stopped using it. 😀 I’ve been able to cook my own lasagne, based on the recipe by Sarah Sutton (Nyssa in ‘Doctor Who’) in the cookbook itself.

Here’s a photo of a lasagne I made based on Sarah’s recipe. 🙂 I’ve enjoyed using this cookbook. I discovered ‘The Doctor Who Cookbook’ when it was ‘revisited’ on the Season 23 Blu-ray box set of ‘Doctor Who’ with Colin Baker last year. Sarah’s lasagne recipe was presented as a ‘bonus recipe’. 🙂

I’ve also seen Sarah’s lasagne recipe on a ‘Doctor Who Magazine’ DVD, which I reviewed last Christmas. As well as Sarah’s lasagne recipe, I’ve had a go at cooking Patrick Troughton’s vegetable soup with Dalek Krotons and Robert Holmes’ corned beef hash. The vegetable soup recipe was good.

Someday, I’ll have to do a ‘Doctor Who Cookbook’-based meal someday. For starters, I have in mind to cook Patrick Troughton’s vegetable soup with Dalek Krotons, for the main course, it’ll be Sarah Sutton’s lasagne and for dessert, it’ll have to be the late Caroline John’s chocolate fudge cake. Tasty!

Cuddles is disappointed that there isn’t a sausage pie recipe featured in the cookbook. 😀 I’ll have to cook that sometime based on my Mum’s recipe. I can also cook some really good spaghetti bolognese. I’m very pleased I’ve used ‘The Doctor Who Cookbook’ lately, especially during pretty difficult times.

Cuddles: “Puddles is wondering whether I can make a wedding cake.”

Thanks for reading!
