Chirstmas is over and no casualties in the Domestic Godless households... but a few seasonal maladies: several ingested intestinal parasites, hangovers and of course colds and flu.
It's fairly undersandable why remedies for these ailments (both herbal and pharmaceutical) are not made to taste nice... especially where children are concerned, but getting the substances into them can be difficult. They quickly learn that the stuff in the white plastic spoon heading in the direction of their mouths should be sprayed across the room and not swallowed.
Luckily, Santa brought us a 'molecular gastronomy' kit, so now with a little creativity added, the little monkeys have no idea what's coming... Benylin Spaghetti, Amoxicillin Caviar, vanilla ice-cream with a Calpol 'cloud' and fizzy 'Actifedijellybears'! There is of course a good chance that they might not trust anything that's put in front of them on a plate from now on, we'll just have to wait and see...
For the past year or so, the Domestic Godless have been in hiding... but this does not mean that we've been idle!
From our hole in the ground in a patch of malarial swamp in West Cork, Ireland, plans are hatching. New recipes, a book and of course this website.
In our attempts to escape the bloodhounds of the nation's Environmental Health Officers, we have travelled the globe, picking things up off forest floors, mountain tops and pavements and then cooking them.
Our collection of recipes is consequently growing. New recipes will be added from time to time, so keep returning. If you have any of your own that you would like to share then contact us, and we'll try and make money out of it. And if anyone out there knows if there exists such a thing as sugar that is not sweet! We are currently looking into the possibility of creating the world's first 12 course epicurean gobstopper, so any information would be very helpful.
The Domestic Godless.
