Master Chef

Mum and I are slightly addicted to Master Chef - even more so this season because one of the contestants (Kate) is friends with my cousin and Mum has met Kate a few times. Which means I can totally claim that I know her. (haha!)

Whenever I watch Master Chef I always feel like cooking - but I'm normally in too much of a hurry to make anything besides my normal recipes. On Friday there was a master class with a pastry chef and he made lemon meringue pie. Yum, yum.

I decided to give it a go, but as one big one instead of little tarts. Here is my final result - I don't have a blow torch so the meringue didn't turn out all brown and crispy - will have to research how to do that with a normal oven.

I claim her as my close personal friend because of your association with her :) Just pop the pie/tart in the oven for 10 minutes and it'll brown the meringue. Easy as....pie!
