Vegan Chocolate – Orange Torte
cookbook
Image by yummysmellsca
Adapted from Vegan Chocolate by Fran Costigan, this torte is full of orange, fruity olive oil, almond and chocolate notes that will satisfy any chocoholic – not to mention it’s egg-free, dairy free and a source of whole grains! The chocolate-orange ganache on it’s own is to die for too, especially if you’re a Terry’s fan 🙂

Pitaya aka Dragonfruit
cookbook
Image by Vanessa Pike-Russell
Currently in season, the Dragonfruit is one of the strangest looking fruits I have ever seen. The first time I heard of them was in the ingredients list of the Power-c Vitamin Water containing Dragongruit by Glaceau. The fruit of several cactus species, most importantly of the genus Hylocereus(sweet pitayas) is usually either a vibrant red or yellow with white flesh and small black pips inside. Shaped somewhat like an artichoke, the red species is the more commonly found in Australia.

Recently I was told about a dragonfruit farm in in Queensland owned by Mary Vassallo, a very talented lady who has authored two cookbooks on Maltese Cooking. She and her husband has been growing pitaya on their farm and sent me some photos of their harvest.

I’ve taken this shot maybe a dozen times. I absolutely love it. This photo isn’t exactly perfect – I’m not sure about the processing. I think I like this old stock in HC-110 stand. I’ve tried processing it as per the data sheet’s instructions – HC-110B for 4.5minutes, but I really didn’t care for that.

I don’t really like processing any b&w film for less than five minutes. Seven to ten is ideal. I follow the agitation rule of once per minute if it’s over five minutes long. More agitation than that makes it too contrasty for my liking. Additionally, the shorter the development time, the more room there is for error, especially at the end (for me, anyway).

This is covered in Anchell & Troop’s essential ‘Film Developing Cookbook’:

‘If the tank development time is less than six minutes a two tank system should always be used. The first tank should contain the developer, the second tank should contain the stop bath or water rinse. shortly before development is complete the light should be turned off and the lid removed from the tank. At the moment that development is complete the film should be pulled out of the tank, drained for ten seconds, then immediately immersed into the second tank. If a water rinse is used instead of an acid stop bath it should be a running water rinse for at least one minute or five complete changes. This method will ensure against streaking and uneven development. It can also be used with longer development times.’

.
Since I don’t have a darkroom, I can’t take the reels from the developing tank and put them into a stop tank. But because long development times usually require less concentrated developers, it isn’t as difficult to stop the developer with a fairly normal washing (I use water, not an acid stop).

Carrot Cake
cookbook
Image by ulterior epicure
This carrot cake recipe is from the Gourmet Cookbook (edited by Ruth Reichl). If I were the creator, I would have called it the "Everything Carrot Cake" – it is full of nuts, carrots, raisins, coconut, and pineapple. This is a four-layer cake and is one of the most moist cakes I have ever tasted. It is layered and frosted with a pretty straightforward cream cheese frosting. (See a cross-section here.)
