We didn’t forget cake! But we’ve given these cakes a savoury twist, making them perfect for any time of day.
BIRTHDAY, WEDDING, ANNIVERSARY…
There’s a reason the word “cake” often follows these three words. Celebrations of important milestones usually include grand finales in the form of cake. Here at Food & Drink, we’re ticking the cake box, but with a twist. We’re thinking outside the box by moving our cakes front and centre. Rather than sweet confections with fancy designs, we turned to the savoury kitchen and the seasonal autumn harvest. Sweet beets, butternut squash, ripe tomatoes and fresh herbs are just some of the ingredients you’ll find in the following recipes. Some do take their inspiration from the sweet kitchen—one with a crumble topping, another with a slightly sweet glaze—but all are suitable as an appetizer or a light main course, served alongside a leafy green salad. With careful planning, the components within each recipe can be prepared ahead, making the final stage of cake baking quick and easy. Fancy? Not exactly, but certainly novel and delicious!
