I love this time of year, when you get to dress up and be someone totally different. Not that I think being a witch is too far from my real personality. Every Halloween I try to think up spooky and creepy ways to present something tasty. In the past I’ve made Deviled eggs look like Satan’s Spawn and White Chocolate mice with gummy centers. This year I’m decided to make a Finger Lickin’ Cauldron Curry, I’m going to fashion witches fingers out of ground meat. Bake them till they are a bit firm and then immerse them in a blood stained curry … finger licking good!
The whole idea was inspired by a purchase of a cooking pot in the summer. I happened to find a Chinese soup pot that looks so much like a cauldron, that I snapped it up. I’ve piped meat before to fill pastries and spring rolls before, so I figured this technique would be well suited to creating fingers as well. Using egg white to secure the almond flakes worked really well and this concoction turned out creepier that I envisioned. Make sure to watch the video where I don the make up and work the Witch’s hat!
