This Classic Comfort Food Feast has a simple and creamy risotto base, a selection of add ons like roast pork and pigs in blankets, a tenderstem broccoli side and a very classic apple crumble with homemade custard for dessert. Delicious!

Welcome to the next instalment of simple everyday feasts put together from recipes shared with the #CookBlogShare link party. I’ve talked more about the party and the wonderful recipes that I’ve chosen to showcase a little further down.
But first a little update about whats been going on the world of Feast Glorious Feast.
Virtual Feast Services
Things have continued to go from strength to strength with my side hustle business. Although if we’re honest it’s really my main hustle nowadays.
I’m lucky enough to be able to choose to take on more of the jobs that I love like site redesigns and pin graphic creation and avoid the tasks I don’t. Like I said, very lucky. I’ve even had to create a waitlist for some services.
But what that does mean is if you are a blogger looking for some help, it really is better to get in touch sooner rather than later. Getting that festive content optimised is a priority for many right now – got to make the most of Q4 RPMs!
If you are not a blogger and have no idea what I’m talking about, my apologies – just keep scrolling!
So Whats New at Feast Glorious Feast?
I’ve been working with my eye on a few different endgames lately. I know its very early in the year to be talking about festive food but for us food writers, we have to get ahead of the game. So you might have noticed a few recipes creeping in that will be perfect for the main event on the big day.
The good thing is that the vast majority of this recipes are also useful year round, especially when making a traditional roast dinner or looking for a new and interesting side dishes.
And then I’ve done a little baking and making the most of summer fruits too.
Plus I’ve also fully embraced my griddle pan this year…

Lots of good stuff continuing to build up to some brand new feasts. Here are some teaser pics! can you guess the recipes?

Next week will be hosted by Jacqui over at Recipes Made Easy.
A Classic Comfort Food Feast
It really is that time of year where despite there still being a few warm days here and there, warming autumnal comfort food is where it’s at. So this feast is filled with classic flavours to fill bellies.
I’ve also designed it to be super flexible so there are a few options available.
Slow Cooker Risotto from Jam and Clotted Cream
The classic flavours and super easy cooking method make this white risotto an ideal comfort food recipe in its own right or the base to add other flavours and veg.
If you don’t have a slow cooker, you can go for a low and slow cook in a heavy pan in the oven or go for the usual stir it in a pan method. Whatever you do, don’t forget to add the clotted cream because that sounds amazing.
Roast Pork with Crispy Crackling from Recipes Made Easy
If you want to add some protein to your risotto, roast pork is going to be an absolute winner. It is an especially great to use up and leftovers.
Don’t forget to use the cracking too. A bit of crunch is the perfect foil to a creamy rice dish.
Or you could try…
If you don’t have or fancy pork, you could try one of these alternative additions:
Roasted Parmesan Tenderstem Broccoli by Curly’s Kitchen
Whether you choose to add some extra veg to your creamy risotto or simply serve some on the side, this broccolini recipe from Cat is going to be a winner.
Any excuse to get a little closer to our 5 a day right? And no one said anything about it not counting, even when its covered in cheese!
Classic Apple Crumble and Vanilla Custard by Farmersgirl Kitchen
Well you can’t have one without the other can you?
This is a simple and easy autumn dessert which is incredibly flexible. You could toss in some foraged blackberries or swap out the apple for pear or another fruit entirely.
Janice’s custard sauce is a gorgeous made from scratch creme anglais. And it is totally worth the extra 5 minutes needed to make it.
Weekend Bakes from #CookBlogShare
As has become my tradition when putting together these feast posts for Cook Blog Share, I just have to show you some of the other great recipes which were linked up. This time I’ve focused on some bakes which are perfect for the weekend.
