Both Beautiful and Delicious!

Trevor
Telford, from Black River Retreat (north of Tweed) shared his passion for
cooking at the October meeting of the Tweed and
District Horticultural Society. Trevor’s culinary knowledge and skill set
certainly held the members attention as he transformed a simple acorn squash
into an elegant and eye catching dish. When cooking, Trevor’s goal is to create
“beautiful and delicious food”
To
start, Trevor cut an acorn squash sideways into slices and removed the seeds which
gave an interesting shape to start. To prepare the sauce, the following recipe
was used….
·       
2 tbsp butter
·       
1 tbsp brown sugar
·       
1 tbsp honey
·       
1 tsp chili peppers
·       
1 tsp cinnamon
·       
1 tsp nutmeg
Melt
above ingredients in microwave. Place squash slices in tinfoil lined baking
dish. Brush with sauce. Cover with tinfoil. Cook 20 min @ 375 degrees. Turn
slices, brush with sauce, cover and cook another 20 minutes.
When
cooked, place on dish and decorate with broccoli florets, asparagus sprigs,
sliced red pepper and caramelized onions. Add smoked cheese cubes.
After
tasting samples of the squash, members agreed with Trevor….”beautiful and
delicious”!!!
