Cooking shows are pretty much the best thing ever. No really, nothing beats watching a talented chef or cook whip up a delicious dish from scratch right in front of your eyes … while you laze about on the couch day dreaming up eating said dish! Of course, there are loads of international chefs and cooks who are super famous for their oh-so-awesome cooking shows but trying to emulate their dishes isn’t always the easiest – the ingredients are sometimes hard to come by, the oven temperatures are in gibberish, and even when you do find the ingredients here in SA they’re not always the same as the ones the chef has used. It’s enough to make a good recipe flop, and hard. But, who needs international cooking shows when we’ve got so much talent right here in SA? That’s right there are so many great local YouTubers to be discovered and right now we’re smitten with Food stylist Claire Winstanley and her new online cooking channel, Good Looking and Cooking (GLAC)! And, to show you just how talented she is we’re sharing her incredible recipe for Pineapple, Choc Chip Mini Doughnut Ice Cream Sandwiches – a must-try dessert of note!
Claire’s digital food channel is devoted to the sheer enjoyment that comes with cooking – and of course eating – really, really ridiculously good looking food that tastes even better. What’s even tastier is that all the easy to make recipes, tips, tricks and shortcuts are available for free on the Good Looking and Cooking website – eep! Even better news is that new GLAC episodes are uploaded every Thursday and all you need to do is subscribe to always be in the know. And, trust us, judging from the recipes up on the YouTube channel so far, you won’t want to miss a bite! Each GLAC episode will have a unique theme and include topics like “Phew! How To…” (a step-by-step video guide on how to simply get to grips with particular recipes), “Now That’s Good Looking” (quick and easy recipes that taste even better than they look), and “The Big Cheese” (interviews with really cool people doing really cool things in cool places).
But what about the doughnuts? These blissful bite-sized wonders are beyond decadent and are packed full of moreish flavours that will keep you coming back for more. Serve them as a dessert at your next dinner party or whip them up for a party. And, just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you can’t indulge in a little icy treat – trust us, these will go down so well you will forget it’s raining outside!
