Didn’t one of St Benedict’s enemies try to poison him? :eek: Wouldn’t be doing any cooking for his feast, I don’t think - he’d probably think I was up to no good :o
As for St Raymond of Penyafort - he’s a patron of lawyers - maybe shark? (little insider joke there - I’m a law student). Or perhaps the hot-air-souffle would be appropriate for him too?
Enough with the jokes - now for the serious suggestions. Since St Raymond was Spanish I’d make some yummy paella in his honour, as nothing else comes to mind.
For St Benedict - I’ve just read that he’s a patron against stinging nettle rash, and remembered that Italians do use stinging nettle leaves in their cooking (you’d need to wear gloves while collecting and preparing it).
It seems to be used in pretty much the same way as arugula, an Italian herb, so I’d imagine the taste is pretty similar.
This recipe for stinging nettle lasagne sounds good.
Hmmm, making me hungry now :yup:
