June 25, 2012 - Banana-Toffee Aspirations

Once a year the entire floor of my office building has a heritage day potluck lunch. The idea is you bring a dish that somehow reflects your heritage to share with the group. There are roughly 120 other people on my floor who come from all corners of Canada and the world. Every year it's a gluttonous feast.

I'm part English, and I recently returned from a trip to London. So I've decided to make banoffee pie. This may also have been inspired by the banoffee pie I sampled at Kateh restaurant in London, noted a few entries ago. The potluck is not until Wednesday so tomorrow I'm going to make the biscuit base and the toffee layer. Then before serving I'll load it with whipped cream, sliced bananas, and a little chocolate syrup. I reckon if I do the cream and bananas ahead then the bananas might go brown and sink into the cream.

I'm taking a risk here because though I've had a banoffee pie or two in my day, this is my first time making it.

Wish me luck!

I'll post pictures and the recipe (if it's a success), and if it turns out to be an epic failure it will make for a funny blog entry. 

Be sure to stay tuned for that. In the meantime, stay happy and well fed.
