Baked oats, with sheep's yogurt

Baked oats with sheep’s yogurt and honey. One dish with apricots and one with peaches.  This is from Sabine who we met us at Bloom and describes herself as a German foodie living in Ireland, her account on Instagram is sabine.cook.eat.slim, as well as a fabulous cook her photography is excellent. We’ve featured baked oats before  (you can have a look here https://velvetcloud.ie/blogs/recipes/what-foods-cause-diverticulitis-this-lovely-recipie-might-help ) as a lovely way to get fibre, calcium, phytonutrients and smiles into everyone. But until now I had never thought of using apricots and peaches.

One Pico soufflé with Velvet Cloud sheep's yogurt sorbet

Also in the Irish Times Magazine at the weekend Corinna Hardgrave reviewed One Pico in Dublin “I just love a good soufflé, and this is text book perfect, with a quenelle of Velvet Cloud sheep’s yogurt sorbet.”  I remember being invited to One Pico, just after we had set up the business, for a working lunch. This dessert was on the menu, so of course I had to order it, I felt so proud and its fantastic to see its lasted all these years.
