  1. I hope you get a chance to join!
  2. This sounds delicious and making me hungry! This is fine. Just keep things PG and not 18+ horror.
  3. Yes that’s right. More on the lines of a Disney horror story rather than a Freddy Kruger nightmare.
  4. Greetings to you all citizens of Midgard! With the cozy chills of the Holiday season, we're pleased to open this year's Holiday Cook Off! What a rough year right? So nothing better to make it happier with a bit of Holiday Cooking. We want to see those recipes that bring a smile to your face and remind you of good times you spend with friends and family during this time of year. We would absolutely love to see some traditional recipes with a TalonRO spin to them! This will test your creativity with both cooking and story telling! 🍪 Create story that does not exceed 1,500 words, let your creativity flow through you! 🥛 The dish will need to be TalonRO / RO related. Not just any dish and giving it a Ragnarok name. There must be a clear TalonRO / RO theme and explanation is a must if the connection is not obvious. 🍪 Make sure to write down and take pictures of all necessary steps that you have done as well as the ingredients that you have used to achieve your award winning dish! 🥛 If you are baking, make sure to include the Celsius or Farenheit 🍪 Make sure to include your IGN somewhere in the photograph of your dish so that we'll confirm that you made it. 🥛 Name your creation! 🍪 You must absolutely include a final picture. 🥛 Last and not least, make sure YOU HANDCRAFT your recipe. Online recipes or choices can inspire you, but make sure you post the entire recipe you've used and make it RO-themed somehow. January 20th 2021 00:01 Server time Luna's Angeling Beef & Onion Pie with mash potatoes and mixed vegetables May the blessing of the Divine Poring king be with you, young adventurers, you who wish to reach the summit may this pie bring you warmth and strength needed for your journey. Story Time Hide contents On the outskirts of Kamidal Mountain, the snowfall is harsh, and the howling winds will cut through the strongest of steel, those who venture into the unknown unprepared will meet an unforgivable fate. *** It has been three years since that encounter, unforgettable day, Sakura and I were rescued from a cluster Dolomedes. We decided one day to adventure into the mountains around El Dicastes, we heard stories of beautiful gems found upon the mountains and with Christmas closing in we thought that these would make lovely gifts. We didn't expect the storm would rage this much, and then we felt it, vibrations coming from the ground, something ... something was coming towards us, but we couldn't see through the blizzard, in the distance we could see glowing light moving against the white snow. Sakura: " Captain, run!" Captain: "No, I won't leave you behind." At that moment, I thought that it couldn't end like this; they are waiting for us, our family, and our friends. Then I saw it this fiery light dancing in the distance, and something told me to run towards it. Run. Run. RUN I told myself, get up and RUN. "Sakura, give me your hand." We ran toward that warm light, and there she stood, a young girl with silver hair and what I could see a fiery scarf around her neck, what was a young girl doing out in the middle of nowhere and by herself and why was she starring at the sky like that and the storm didn't affect her. I shouted out "Can you help us, please, they are coming for us". Our eyes met, blood-red eyes looking right through my soul, she pointed at the sky, and a giant fiery bird appeared from the sky and hovered above us, it spread its wings, and the snow melted behind the mountain cliff, and a hut appeared and there stood another young girl who looked like a Valkyrie. At this moment the monsters caught up to us, but they dare not move any further, baring their fangs at us. "Seasons greetings, Adventures. Do not fear. They dare not come any closer. You look hungry, why don't I show you how to make my Angeling Pie?" How to make Angeling Pie Hide contents Preparing the pastry – shortcrust pastry If you have the time you can prepare the pastry the night before. If you are short on time you will need to make the pastry 1hr before cooking and let it set in the fridge. I will be making two batches of pastry one for the bottom of and one for the top & decorations. The below measure reflects this. Plain flour 440g Unsalted Butter 300g 4-6 tsp of cold water or milk 2 teaspoons of Salt · Shift 220g plain flour & 150g unsalted butter into mixing bowl and rub together with the tips of your fingers until it resembles breadcrumb texture. It is important not to mix it with your hands as we do not want the butter to melt quickly. Note: If you have a food processor you can use this as well but when mixing everything together make sure you pulse (short bursts) the mix and not a continuous mix. Once the mixture has turned into fine breadcrumbs first add 1tsp of water or milk and mix, then add another teaspoon. Normally 2 tsp will be enough. but if you feel your mixture is little dry then add another teaspoon. Sprinkle some flour on surface and wrap your pastry in cling film and place into fridge. 15min before cooking take your pastry out of the fridge. Beef and Onion filling 1 beef stockpot 1 veg stockpot 2 tablespoons of Worchester Sauce 1 tablespoon of Virgin olive oil 1 large onion 2 teaspoons of pepper 2 teaspoons of salt 100g beef 500ml hot water 1 egg · (Personal preferences) put the beef pieces in a strainer and hold it under cold water to get rid of any excess blood from the packaging and then place in a bowl. Turn the stove on medium heat and add olive oil into a pot. While waiting for the oil to heat go ahead and start chopping your onion. Once the pot is heated add the onion in, stir for a bit until soft but not brown then add in the beef. Add in salt and pepper Cook until the beef is little brown on the outside, turn them once in while so that it does not stick to the bottom of the pan. While the beef is cooking you can make your stock. In a measuring glass add the beef and veg stock and then add 500ml of hot water and stir. Once the beef has browned add in the stock and let it simmer for few mins. Then transfer into slow cooker and cook for two hours, if you do not have a slower cooker you can leave on the stove on a low heat. This is to help tenderise the beef and bring the flavours together. 2 hours later Prepare the Mash Potatoes Peel and cut the potatoes then place in a bowl of cold water so they do not dry out. Cut into piece so they do not take too long to soften. Blind Baking the pastry We do this so the bottom of the pie is not wet and the sauce doesn’t soak through. Coat your baking dish with butter and take one half of the pastry and place into your baking dish, with a glass or spoon carefully mold the pastry to the shape of the dish. Place some cling film in the pastry bowl and fill with 1 or 2 small cups of rice or clay beans then seal the top of the cling film. Place in the oven at 190c for 10 minutes and then take the rice bag out of the dish, return to oven, and leave for another 5mintues for the bottom of the pastry to turn brown. Once done take out of the oven and place to one side. Making mash potatoes In a pot add hot water and bring to boil. Drain away the cold water from the potatoes and add to the hot water. Wait 15 to 20 minutes and poke a potato piece to see if it is soft. (while waiting you can start preparing the top part of the pie) Once soft drain away water and add in 2 tablespoons of butter and a pinch of salt and mix. Note: you can use milk or cream as well. With a potato masher (or a fork) mash potatoes pieces until they become fluffy, I personally like my mash potatoes to have small potatoes bits inside. Top part of the pie & the filling (this can be done while you are waiting for the potatoes to boil) Roll out the second part of your pastry on to a flat surface dusted with some flour and cut in half, one part will be used for the top layer and the other will be used to decorate the pie. Place to one side. Add the beef and onion to the pie dish add a little bit of the stock so the pie is not dry on the instead. Break the egg into a small bowl and beat with a pastry brush line the outer part of the dish with egg and then place the flat pastry on top and with a small knife cut any excess pastry away. With a fork gently press the sides down to steal the bottom and top together. Coat the top part of with some egg. With the left-over pastry start to create your decoration, use a small knife to help shape each piece. Note: The oven dish I used is 17cm, the decoration on top ended up being little big so I needed to cut a lot away to get it to fit on top of the pie. Coat the top of the pie with egg and it is ready to go into the oven for 25 – 30min at 220c Do not forget to make a few slits on the pie so it can breathe while cooking. Once the potatoes are done you can go ahead and boil the veg, which takes 3min Then plate up and serve, this dish feed 2 people but you could probably feed 3 depending on the portions Then serve everything on to a plate Few notes after taking my first bite: I made the decoration pastry little too thick, make sure decoration at the top is thin. Also, felt I could have chopped the beef in half again to get more meat with each bite. My sauce didn’t end up being as thick as I wanted it to be, if you want a thicker sauce before placing the diced beef into the pot coat them in some flour mixed with salt and pepper. 🍪 Top three winners Loyal BonusWhen summoned,Increases duration of Stat foods by 50%. 🍪 20 Talon Coins 🥛 1 Monthly Costume Box 🍪 1 Lv. 10 Cookbook 🥛 1 Fantastic Cooking Kit 🍪 4th place: 🥛 20 Talon Coins 🍪 1 Monthly Costume Box 🍪 5th place: 🥛 15 Talon Coins 🍪 1 Monthly Costume Box 🍪 Participation Prize 🥛 1 Lv. 10 Food Bundle.
