zelena's Onion Rings
Honoring FACTS Guest Rebecca Mader (Once Upon a Time / Lost)
Look, we know that if the Dark One offers you onion rings, that you’re probably better off not eating them. But these are soooo good. What you need is mild onions, flour, cream, pepper, salt, 3 eggs, parmesan cheese, lard and melted butter with mustard. And possibly a gynaecologist, just in case.
Creamy cheese stuffed courgettes & sausagemeat
Honoring FACTS Guest Asa Butterfield (Sex Education / Ender’s Game / …) and ex-FACTS guest Gillian Anderson
Yes, we know that after watching Season 2 of Sex Education, courgettes will never taste the same again, but at least we can have some ‘fun’ with it. So get a firm grip and start spreading until that courgette is filled with creamy cheese and relax as you feel those new flavours erupting in your mouth. Culinary orgasm, anyone?
captain Jack's Fruit Skewers
Honoring FACTS Guest Kaya Scodelario (Pirates of the Caribbean / The Maze Runner)
Avast, ye scallywags. These here fruit skewers be inspired by the beads on Captain Jack Sparrow’s head. If ye desire to feast upon these sticks, sail towards the nearest outpost t’ buy wooden skewers, golden raisins, blackberries, raspberries, green grapes, white chocolate-covered raisins and soft cookies. Ye can use ‘parley’ to discuss the possibility of putting other fruits and nibbles on your blade, but that’s just more of a guideline anyway. Hahahahaaargh.
