WM LOVES: ILA
21 Jul, 2016 · · Comments
New to the lineup at WM GOODS is ILA: a collection of essential ingredients for your kitchen and home.
When we stumbled across the genius blog, Sunday Suppers, we knew we had to get our hands on their line & try for ourselves! A couple of recipes later and we felt we had to spread the gospel. Literally everything in the line tastes beyond amazing, and the bonus is that they have the most beautiful packaging your kitchen has ever seen.
Everything in ILA’s line is carefully sourced from farms, purveyors, and artisans around the globe with each product selected for its integrity & delivered with great care and purpose. Their mission is to inspire people to gather, cook, and celebrate the act of a shared meal together.
With items like their extra virgin olive oil, wild flower honey, and salts, we have picked a few recipes from the Sunday Suppers blog- we can’t get enough of & think you’ll absolutely LOVE too!
3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil (plus more for greasing)
8 tablespoons good-quality unsweetened cocoa
½ cup boiling water
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup almond meal
1/3 cup all purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon of salt
1 cup superfine sugar
3 large eggs
Preheat your oven to 325ºF. Grease a 9inch springform tin with a little oil and line the base with baking parchment
Sift the unsweetened cocoa into a bowl and whisk in the boiling water until you have a smooth, dark, paste. Whisk in the vanilla extract, then set aside to cool a little. In another bowl, combine the almond meal and flour with the baking soda and salt.
In the bowl of a freestanding mixer with the paddle attachment, combine the sugar, olive oil and eggs and beat together for about 3 minutes until you have a light, fluffy cream.
Turn the speed on the mixer down and pour in the cocoa and vanilla paste, beating as you go. Slowly add the flour mixture until it is evenly combined. This may require scraping down the side of the mixture to incorporate the flours fully.
Pour the liquid batter into the prepared tin and sprinkle with flaky salt. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the sides are set and the top of the cake still looks slightly moist. A cake tester should come up clean with a few crumbs on it.
Allow the cake to cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack, still in its tin, and then run a knife around the sides of the cake. Release the spring on the pan and transfer the cake to a serving dish or cake stand. Sprinkle with more flaky salt. Serve it with creme fraiche, dried rose petals and pistachio.
2 thick slices of Sourdough Bread
2 Tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive oil
2 ounces of goat cheese
4 French Radishes, quartered
2 Tablespoons of Wildflower Honey, divided
2 Tablespoons chives, roughly chopped
Cyprus Flake Salt, to taste
Preheat grill over high heat. Brush each side of bread slices with olive oil and toast on grill, 2-3 minutes per side. Set aside to cool slightly.
Spread 1 ounce of goat cheese over one side of each slice of toast. Top with radishes, approximately 2 per slice, and distribute edible flowers between them. Drizzle 1 Tablespoon of honey over each toast.
To serve, garnish with chives and a sprinkle of cyprus flake salt.
