We don’t just want to bring you great games, mods and adventures. We also want to make your gaming sessions amazing. And to help with that, we’re starting a new series on the blog: d100 Recipes. Over the next year or so, we’ll be showing you 100 recipes that are easy, tasty and filling. Even if you have never cooked before in your life, we’re sure you’ll be able to tackle some of these recipes to make your gaming nights more wholesome and fun.

To start it all off, here’s a tasty snack and a drink:

Cheese Twists

Ingredients

  • 2 sheets – Pre-rolled, partly thawed puff pastry
  • 2 cups – Grated cheese of your choice
  • 1 Tbsp – Herbs and spices
  • 1 – Egg
  • Some flour for dusting

Equipment

  • Oven
  • Baking Trays
  • Baking/parchment paper
  • Rolling Pin

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 200C/390F.
  • Line a baking sheet with baking/parchment paper.
  • Grate your cheese and mix through your herbs and spices.

We recommend a hard cheese such as Parmesan or Cheddar; and paprika, cayenne and some garlic salt for the spices.

  • Dust your work surface slightly with some flour and spread out the sheets of puff pastry.
  • Mix the egg thoroughly and give each sheet a good egg wash.
  • Sprinkle half the cheese onto one of the pastry sheets in an even layer.
  • Cover the cheese with the other pastry sheet, making sure that the egg washed side is facing up.
  • Sprinkle your remaining cheese onto the pastry sheet.
  • Get a rolling pin and flatten your cheese filled pastry sheets, making sure to keep it rectangular in shape.

What you are aiming to do here is force the cheese into the pastry

  • Cut the cheesy pastry into 2cm/1inch strips.
  • Take each strip and twist them at opposite ends, and put them on your baking sheet about 2cm/1 inch apart.
  • Bake your cheese twists for 12-15 minutes, and then let them cool completely before enjoying them.

You can always make the cheese twists in advance. Instead of baking them, you can put them in an airtight container and freeze them for up to 3 months. Then when you want, you can bake them straight from frozen for 15-18 minutes.

Dirty Lemonade

Ingredients

  • 2 – Lemons
  • 500ml/1 pint – water
  • Sugar to taste

Equipment

  • Blender/food processor

Method

  • Wash your lemons, cut them into wedges and remove the pith and seeds from them.
  • Put the lemons (rind included) and the in the blender/food processor and blend them until you get a smooth(ish) lemonade.

If it’s a particularly hot day, you can substitute some of the water for ice cubes, or even freeze some of the lemon wedges before you blend them.

  • Have a taste since the lemon rind can make the lemonade a bit bitter, and add some sugar and blend it again.
  • Keep adding sugar until you get the right amount of sweetness.
