Ladies (and Paul!)
So sorry to be exceptionally tardy with my reply - I live in the Vaucluse and we’ve had a tremendous storm week = trees down, flooding, roof partly off a barn, tree branch fell on car, no internet. Thanks, - it’s been marvellous!
Anyway, thanks for the lively discussion. The picky eaters coming are my Irish chef friends dogs who eat home-made. And I’m afraid I’ve had a bit of an epiphany. Good grief. You have no idea what they put in dog food - there’s a reason it’s always next to the cleaning products in the supermarkets!
Actually I think you probably all DO KNOW what’s in dog food - but maybe like me you’ve always been too afraid or too lazy (me) to bother. I’M A CHEF !!! I store my dogs food in a BIN… It has to stop. I love our dogs and cats (almost) as much as I love my husband. I know lots of people who actually prefer their pets! So, I decided if I can cook for my husband and my clients I can cook (or not) for the dogs and cats too. I’ve been experimenting and researching… I’ve always made treats for them - liver treats like my namesake here and dog biscuits with pumpkin, or carrot or apple. I make them at holidays and give them to our clients, in bone shapes or hearts or baubles at Christmas.
(Recipe to follow for the treats)
Anyway I’m afraid I might bore you with my research I’ll share my ideas and discoveries here! All thoughts & recipes welcome
