Apparently I made some pretty OK food for Kingdom University a few weeks ago. I will try to put up some of the recipes of the dishes that people spoke about, a lot!
I primarily used the Neapolitan Collection with a few recipes from Libre du Cuccina . The first selection came out with the 3rd course and was modified in only that I was unable to put the pasta layer on the top.
Grating the squash is important for texture reasons. It really is different than using mashed. I think I will at some point try it with the veal (I can't eat pork) but using butter was perfectly fine.
Another note, I used cream instead of milk and the 'new cheese'. I found this worked well to give me the creaminess.
Squash torte Neapolitan Collection p. 196 rec 128
Get a good squash, scrape and grate it, and bring it to a boil in fat broth or milk; get a pound of new and old cheese; Get a pound of pork- I mean, pork belly- or veal, boil it until it is well done, then beat it with a knife; if you like, instead of belly you can use good butter or lard, along with half a pound of sugar, ginger and cinnamon, with a beaker of milk and 8 eggs; when the squash is cooked in broth, take it out and strain it; make the mixture yellow with saffron and put it in a pan with moderate fire above and below; when it looks half done, put small lasagne on top; when it is well done, put sugar and rosewater on top.
½ kg butternut
2 oz cheese I used a combo of emmentaler and parmesan
1 oz cream
1 oz sugar
2 oz butter (soft)
5 g fresh ginger (grated)
½ tsp cinnamon
⅓ recipe pasta dough (100g flour + 1 egg)
Bake 180 20 min (no convection, just over under heat)
Lay pasta on
Bake for 10 min more
Tasty! Can bump ginger, cream was a good idea. Double to 2 ½ times for a single ‘pie’. if you want to create a meat broth from bouillon I recommend using a 1/2 chicken 1/2 beef and making it slightly strong. If you use commercial broth extra salt is not needed though a pinch would be OK. if you use home made and it is not salted add some salt to the mixture.
