if one word were to sum up my eating habits over the last few months, it would have to be ‘indulgent’ (alternately, i could do it in three words: too much cake!).
it wasn’t a deliberate thing, it just seemed to work out that way.
first there was december and with it, christmas baking –
i started the first week of the month and carried on right through until christmas.
then came new years – always festive – and not, i feel, a time for restraint.
and then hello january and instead of the usual health-related resolutions
came much chocolate cake testing – i was making my friend’s wedding cake you see, and wanted it to be the perfect chocolate-y balance.
so really, to cut a long story short, too much cake was eaten.
in light of this, and the lovely warm weather we have been experiencing,
i thought a savoury dish was in order – something easy, light, and tasty…
still colloquially classified as a ‘cake’ (which to me only added to the fun!) these little potato and anchovy bites seemed to fit the bill, especially when served with a crunchy, fresh salad and vibrant greener-than-green sauce.
they were tasty, light and easy – the perfect antidote to the last few months of sweet excess.
