Fashion Inspiration: Emilia Wickstead AW15 Favourites...


I've always been a fan of Emilia Wickstead. Season after season, I find myself falling even more in love with the work of the designer. I love the femininity, colours, and wearability of the collections. This season, the colour palette consisted of pastels, autumnal colours, black, tartans and metallics. I particularly love the two pieces in the last picture below; they are so simple and chic.

In The Kitchen 12...


Rosemary lamb Chops and Rosemary Yam Chips

I always come across fresh Rosemary in the supermarket but have never used it before. Normally, when I use herbs for cooking I use an Italian herb mix. I bought a packet of rosemary on impulse some days ago. I didn't know what I wanted to use them for until I remembered the email I received from Westfield about national chip week. Instead of using potatoes, I decided to use yam as we always have an abundance of it at home due to my mum's love for it. I paired the yam with lamb chops, which is a great hit in my house.


Lamb Chops Ingredients

Lamb Chops
Rosemary
Maggi Seasoning Cubes
Chilli Flakes
Oil

I prepped the lamb chops the night before, leaving them to marinate overnight. I washed them with water and lemon and marinated them using rosemary, chilli flakes, maggi and a small amount of oil as Lamb has a lot of fat which produces its own oil whilst cooking. I cut off most of the fat before washing them. 

The next day, I took the lamb out of the fridge and let them warm up to room temperature, then I seared them in a griddle pan before transferring it to the oven. I like my meat well done, so I seared them for about a minute on each side and grilled them in the oven for 20 minutes.



Rosemary Yam Chips Ingredients

Yam
Salt
Rosemary
Oil

I cut the yam into chunks and soaked them in water to stop them browning. I then seasoned with salt and rosemary before frying.


All done and served with some tomato sauce.
