Creamy Mushroom Risotto
 
The story of risotto began in the 14th century B.C., when the Arabs brought rice to Sicily and Spain during their rule. Italy was the ideal place to grow short-grain rice due to the humid weather and abundant flat land. As a result, rice became a main part of Italian food culture.Risotto is a northern Italian rice dish cooked with broth until it reaches a creamy consistency. The broth can be derived from meat, fish, or vegetables.
 
 
This is a great with grilled chicken or steak or just on its own.
Some like their risotto sloppy like soup and some like drier so it holds its shape.
Just make it how you like it.

Competion

I started this competition last week and are seeking a quote for this picture. So far I have had one reply, so I thought I would continue to run this competition for another week to see whether we can get some more replies.
In the competition last week we also included this house and were seeking people to respond with a location of this house. So far I have had two replies one being "New Zealand" and "rural New Zealand" well both may be accurate but the editor is looking for a more accurate response. Please do not respond with "North Island or South Island" as we are still looking for something more specific.

This week’s recipe is from Little and Friday, my favourite café.
 
It can be a wonderful afternoon tea or a dessert . I quite often just cook the pears on their own for dessert. Not only is it absolutely delicious it looks divine on the plate.
 
Chocolate Grenache
½ cup of cream and 200 grams of good quality dark chocolate grated.
 
In a saucepan, heat the cream to just below boiling point. Remove from heat and stir in the chocolate until melted and smooth. Allow to cool and thicken before using.

I love this weeks recipe because it is so easy to make and everyone loves it.  
Chocolate Bark
 
 
The addition of the smoked chili and spices is subtle but utterly addictive.
It is great with coffee or as a dessert.
 
1 tsp very finely chopped dried smoked chill    
¼ tsp ground cloves                                
1 tsp five-spice powder                  
2 tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp fine black pepper
500g dark chocolate (at least 60% coca solids)
Coarsely chopped
1 ½ cups coarsely chopped dried cranberries
1 cup coarsely chopped unsalted roasted
1 cup coarsely chopped pistachios, plus extra to sprinkle
 
 
Place the chili cloves, five-spice, cinnamon and black pepper in a heavy frypan and toast over a medium heat until they start to smell fragrant (about 30 seconds) Don’t overheat or they will burn.
 
Line an oven tray with baking paper for easy clean-up. Gently melt the chocolate in the microwave stirring every 30 seconds or in a large bowl over a pot of boiling water.
Remove from heat and stir on toasted spice mix and dried fruit and nuts, reserving 1/5 cup of pistachios.
 
Spread evenly on the prepared tray, sprinkle the extra pistachios and leave in a cool place until set (about 45 minutes). Break into chunks and pieces.
Store in a container in a cool place for up to a month…if it lasts that long.

Walnut and Chocolate Ganache Biscuits
Rich chocolate and toasty walnuts make these deliciously chewy cookies perfect to serve at the end of a leisurely meal.
Walnut and Chocolate Ganache Biscuits
 
 


INGREDIENTS

1¼ cups walnut pieces, roasted until lightly golden
1 cup icing sugar
2 tablespoons plain flour or plain gluten-free flour (I used Orgran brand)
¾ teaspoon ground mixed spiced
finely grated zest 1 orange
3 tablespoons finely chopped crystallized ginger 
1 egg, lightly beaten
Chocolate ganache
1 cup cream
200 grams dark chocolate
To cook
1 cup icing sugar

METHOD

Preheat the oven to 170°C.
Place all the ingredients except the egg in a food processor.
Process until the mixture is finely chopped but not smooth. Add the egg and pulse to form a soft, sticky dough. It should look like chunky peanut butter. Scrape into a bowl, cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm.
Liberally sprinkle the bench and your hands with icing sugar.
Scoop out small teaspoons of dough and drop onto the icing sugar. Roll into marble-sized balls. They will triple in size when cooked. Flatten the tops lightly with a fork then sprinkle with extra icing sugar to give a good coating. Place on lined baking trays about 3 cm apart. Chill one tray of cookies while the first tray is in the oven.
Bake for about 10 minutes until golden and the tops have a crackled effect.
Cool on the tray for 2 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack.
Ganache: Put the cream in a small saucepan and bring to just below boiling point. Remove from the heat, add the chocolate and stir until smooth. Tip into a bowl and cool to a thick, spreadable consistency.
Spoon the ganache into a piping bag with a fluted nozzle. Pipe a layer onto the smooth side of half of the cookies then sandwich with the remaining cookies. Place in the fridge for 1 hour to set the ganache. Makes about 20 doubles depending on their size
Cook’s tip: Unfilled cookies will keep for 3 days in an airtight container. Filled cookies will soften after 1 day.

It may be an old family recipe and one that you have had fun mastering over time.
 
Recipe Corner has two recipes for you this week
 
We celebrate ANZAC day this week with the traditional Anzac biscuit recipe form the Edmonds Cookbook. My Grandfather Robert Darnell Bakewell, fought in WW1. He left the family farm in Inglewood to enlist for WW1.  He was underage and took his horse with him. We believe he was wounded in the Somme and was sent home. Undeterred and determined to serve he made his way to Australia and enlisted with the Australian Army. He was still underage. 
 
When the war ended, he returned home to the family farm to find that he had been disinherited. His Mother believed that as the eldest son he should have stayed at home on the farm.
My brother, Commander Layamon Bakewell, DSD, RNZN, proudly wears our Grandfather's medals on Anzac

This week’s recipe comes to you from Norman Brooks
Norman was born in Ireland, in Dublin and lived there until his family emigrated to NZ when hewas ten. In 1977 he returned to Ireland and lived and worked  in County Donegal for six months.
During his time there they purchased a tea towel which had the recipe for Irish Bannock on it.  They still have the tea towel! I worked again in Ireland for the Irish Methodist Church from 2004 to 2006 and bought Bannock regularly from the grocery store.  
 
Norman said” Bannock, or wheaten soda bread is sold in supermarkets right throughout Ireland.   I particularly like it buttered with a good slice of tasty cheddar, or for breakfast with a tasty marmalade.”

Roslyn Noonan Human Rights

Roslyn Noonan gave an interesting talk on Human Rights, which are defined in the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. When they were adopted the NZ delegate said that all articles are equally important. She noted that they do not include the right to smoke so prisoners were unable to invoke help for a smoking ban in prisons! A Former Commissioner Roslyn outline New Zealand's prominent role in Human Rights from the Treaty in 1840 to present day rights for the disabled. She has been assisting the development of human rights in the South Pacific, particularly relating to climate change and family violence and emphasised the importance of consultation at he grass roots level to build pressure for change.

Our speaker was Kris Gledhill, who is now at AUT Law School and previously a colleague of Ken Palmers at The University of Auckland. He presented numerous and very insightful statistics on New Zealand's Sentencing Regime-A Comparative Analysis. NZ has a relatively high prison population, of which 29% are on demand. Remand prisoners account for the growth of the prison population in the last 10 years. Kris said that the number of judges is capped and many remand prisoners have to wait a long time to have their cases heard. 51% of prisoners are Maori. Reported crime rates are decreasing but the perception of crime is increasing. Judges are issuing tougher sentences.

Bruce Howe - Finance report and other 

story-thumbnail
Our own Bruce Howe presented three topics to the club.
 
Club Finance
Last financial year the club itself raised a net $47,000, most of which was given to the Fiji O2 project. Club operations ran at a loss of $2,234. The current directors are addressing this matter and a solution may be a subscription increase. A shortfall of $37,000 is projected in the current financial year, with committees budgeting to spend $130,000.
 
New World screen
The screen has three objectives:
Promote Rotary;
Display community notices; and
Commercial advertising to raise funds for the club's charitable activities.
 
Last year the screen raised $20,800 and has the potential to raise more. The club needs members to approach firms and encourage them to buy time on the screen. Please see Iain or Bruce if you are willing to assist with this vital activity.
 
Soso Village Water project
The village is in the Yasawa Island group in Fiji. It has 350 people, including 90 children in about 100 homes. Their water is contaminated and has tested unsafe to drink. Bruce  is well into organising a project to pump bore water up to tanks, using solar electricity. The water would be gravity fed into filters and piped to homes. The project is anticipated to cost around $65,000 and is included in the International committee's budget.

Trees for Survival – Recount from club member RE first planting Day for Tamaki Primary School, 7 August 2018

It seems hard to believe that it is nearly a year since The Growing Unit was opened at Tamaki Primary School and the first seedlings were put into their little bags to be looked after by a group of children until they were ready to be planted out in their permanent positions. 
 
Now that day had come so off we went in a bus: two teachers, several mothers, two Rotarians and a group of very excited and thus noisy children to a farm in Clevedon, an Auckland Council chosen site. There we were joined by a group from Accor Hotels,  some of the boys who had helped with the plumbing work of The Unit at the school and an advisor from the Council...
