We were back at the Approved Premises in Oldham on Friday 17 January for the second of six sessions. It was an extremely busy session as the guys were cooking a filling lunch of beef stew and dumplings plus a vegetable and beef suet crust pie along with crispy roast potatoes - a tall order considering we were over 50% down on workforce. Still, the group enjoyed prepping all the vegetables and listening to Cracking Cook Maz share the health benefits of each and how the dish can lend itself to many variations. They made a batch of deliciously fluffy dumplings and a suet crust pie top giving the dish a great rustic appearance. Potatoes were roasted in their skins and treated to a sprinkling of salt and a drizzle of olive oil. The meal was completed with steamed broccoli and looked and tasted amazing.
