Tablenosh has grown out of my desire to bring people together around food while growing my culinary skills. It is inspired by the 'underground' restaurant movement that is happening around the world, but is really more like a dinner party open to the public.
The basic concept is a group of people coming together around a table to enjoy an evening of good food and company in a humble and cozy setting. My vision is that 'tablenosh' will not only whet the appetite, but will truly delight the soul as one engages in community around the table. Tablenosh dinners operate on donations so it is up to you how much you contribute for the evening.

If you are in need of a 'homemade' cake, pie or tart but don't have the time to make one yourself feel free to make an inquiry and if tablenosh can help you out we would be delighted.
This is sweetness indeed. My latest dessert experiment and test-run for friday. Citrus cake with passionfruit custard and lemon cream. I served it to my mother-in-law as her birthday cake, the verdict was very positive. I think it's a winner and will be part of the dessert trio for Friday. The cake is a fabulous recipe that I snagged from someone else's blog it is the second time I have made it, the batter alone is so tasty I wanted to eat the whole bowl (probably a good thing I didn't)! Here is the cake recipe:
The custard is also delicious!!!! For those who are interested here is the recipe: (you can also make this plain vanilla and use a vanilla bean instead of passionfruit or use other flavors you like)
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup caster sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon cornflour (cornstarch)
3 egg yolks
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup cream (lightly whipped)
2-3 tablespoons passion fruit
Place milk in a saucepan over medium heat and heat just until boiling point. Add vanilla and remove from heat.
Place egg yolks and sugar in a bowl and beat until thick. Add the cornflour and hot milk and stir until smooth.
Return the mixture to a clean saucepan over medium hear and stir constantly with wooden spoon (or whisk) until thickened (can take up to 15 min).
Bring the custard to a boil and then turn the heat down to low and cook for 2 more minutes. Remove for heat and add butter stirring to combine. Put mixture into fridge to cool covered.
Once the mixture is cool fold through the whipped cream and passion fruit - use more passion fruit if needed for a stronger flavor.
I have also added mascarpone cheese to this recipe and served it with berries...delicious!
