Request: Persona 4 - Steak Skewers
Megatenn began following me in the early days of Gourmet Gaming and sent through a request forever ago for some Persona based foods (I believe Mystery Burger and Steak Skewers were on the list). After what seems like an eternal winter, this weekend there was some fabulous weather and I felt a fresh and light Asian inspired meal might be in order - so Steak Skewers were the ideal choice. I’ve never played any of the Persona games but I remember an old housemate having Persona 4 and I spent quite a few hours watching him play - I am however a big fan of many Atlus titles so I must annoy him during the week and see if I can borrow his copy. Speaking of Atlus I am VERY excited for Catherine! I watched the review last night and.. Wow. Cara (who wrote about me on Feed The Gamer several weeks ago) and Ben came over to help demolish the meal; I was rather nervous cooking something I had never made before for other people. In order to eat the food, however, they were forced to watch the Catherine review - it seemed like a fair trade. 
What you will need:
Wooden Skewers, griddle pan, grater
300g of Sirloin Steak
300g of Chicken Breast
200g of Tofu
For the Steak/Tofu Marinade:
150ml Dark Soy Sauce
3 Stalks Spring Onion (chopped)
2 Tablespoons Sugar
1 Tablespoons Sesame Oil
1 ½  Tablespoons Flour
1 Clove Garlic (grated)
1 Teaspoon Ginger (grated)
1 Teaspoon Red Chilli (deseeded, chopped)
For the Chicken Marinade:
2 Tablespoons Sesame Oil
1 Teaspoons Chilli Flakes
1 Teaspoons Ginger (grated)
1 Teaspoon Garlic (grated)
1 Tablespoon Fresh Lime Juice
For the Satay Dipping Sauce:
3 Tablespoons Crunchy Peanut Butter
1 Teaspoons Sesame Oil
1 Teaspoons Soy Sauce
1 Clove Garlic (grated)
1 Teaspoon Ginger (grated)
1 Tablespoons Sugar
1 Teaspoon Chilli Flakes
2 Tablespoons Fresh Lime Juice
Milk/Coconut Milk
Optional Serving Vegetables:
Asparagus Spears
Red Onions
Chestnut Mushrooms
Preparing the Steak/Tofu:
Mix all the marinade ingredients in a bowl.
Cube the steak into 1 inch pieces and store in a separate bowl.
Pour half of the marinade over the steak, mix well, cover and place in the fridge for several hours.
Store the rest of the marinade in the fridge for later - as you will use this as extra sauce for serving/dipping.
Preparing the Chicken:
Cube the chicken into 1 inch pieces and place in a bowl.
Add the marinade ingredients to the chicken and mix well.
Cover and store the chicken in the fridge for several hours.
Preparing the Satay Dip:
Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.
Slowly add the milk/coconut milk a tablespoon at a time until a creamy but firm consistency is reached. 
Cover and set aside for later.
Preparing the Skewers:
Skewer the steak and chicken onto skewers - 4 pieces on each.
Heat a griddle pan to a medium heat and cook.
If you are making the tofu version - cook the skewers in a frying pan with some olive oil.
I served the skewers with thin egg noodles, ribboned  carrot and cucumber salad and skewered asparagus, mushroom and red onion that was roasted in the oven.

I was so hungry I inhaled my tofu version, which from what I can recall was really tasty, but I’ve since been told the food was actually delicious. I’ve amended the Satay recipe slightly to reduce the amount of Soy Sauce as I found it slightly salty so it should be more balanced now. Although that Satay was piled precariously high on the steak at one point in the meal! I sadly couldn’t find a good enough image of the Steak Skewer in the game to compare, but I did find this lovely drawing of it (if you have an in-game shot, please send it!). After eating those Skewers I am now even more intrigued to play Persona 4 - it will definitely be making an appearance at our gaming night, Warp Zone, in the near future!

Request: Minecraft – Cake
I purposefully don’t play Minecraft; though enough of my friends have harassed me to play it and I’ve heard nothing bur praises. I’ve spoken before of my horribly addictive personality and I know that if I got involved in Minecraft I would never again see the light of day and they’d find my shrivelled, malnourished corpse collapsed over my laptop. It would be a good way to go, but just not yet. Either way Minecraft Cake has been on my list for a while now and enough of you have been asking for it so here you go!
Also from next week, due to popular demand, I will provide ingredients in American-friendly terms. Who knew I’d ever get involved in politics?
What you will need: Large mixing bowl, 20x20 square cake tin, small bowl, small pot, sieve, whisk, rolling pin, spatula, greaseproof/baking paper.
For the Cake:
200g Plain Flour
2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
200g Golden Caster Sugar
200g Butter (Room Temperature)
2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
3 Medium Eggs (Room Temperature)
3 Tablespoons Milk
For the Frosting:
100g Dark Chocolate
25g Butter
150ml Single Cream
100g - 200g Icing Sugar
To Finish:
White Ready-to-roll Icing
Red Ready-to-roll Icing
Preparing the Cake:

Preheat 	the oven to 180C. Grease and line a 20x20cm square cake tin.

In 	a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar together until pale and 	fluffy.

Beat 	the eggs and add them slowly to the butter and sugar along with the 	vanilla extract.

Sieve 	in the flour and baking powder then combine it gently into the mixture. Pour into the 	prepared cake tin and place in the oven for 20-25 minutes.

Once 	golden brown and springy, allow to cool and store in the fridge 	while you prepare the frosting.

Making the Frosting:
In a bain-marie, melt the chocolate, butter and cream together until smooth.
Allow to cool until the mixture thickens slightly, then slowly whisk in the icing sugar until the chocolate is light and fluffy. Allow to cool further before spreading onto the cake.
Making the Cake:

Once 	the cake has cooled, level it carefully then cut it into 4 (you can 	make 2 minecraft cakes from this recipe). You may want to use a 	cookie cutter or make a template so each piece is of equal size.

Take a portion as your base and add a little frosting to the top of it 	and layer another piece of cake for the top – set aside.

On a clean work surface, sprinkle some icing sugar and roll out 	the white icing to about 1 cm thick and cut a piece large 	enough to comfortably cover the cake.

Spread 	some frosting on top of the cake and then cover with the white icing. Trim the icing, then cut in the pattern. You may want to make 	a template and use scissors/scalpel.

Roll 	out the red icing to about 1cm thick like before and cut out 4 	large and 6 small squares, arrange the red squares on top of the 	cake to match the Minecraft Cake.

Cut 	appropriately to serve. If you leave the cake you will have to 	return to the cake to continue eating it.

I found this really stressful! I’ve made it at least three times now because this is a rather important entry! The cake its self is beautiful, just a simple sponge recipe, the tricky part is getting the shapes and icing correct. I didn’t think I would have to use my technical graphics skills to work out cake patterns – maybe I would have enjoyed it more at school if that had been its purpose from the start. All I can say is cardboard templates really saved the day here. You can of course make this cake massive if you have the right sized tins, I did not so I had to improvise and make smaller, personal cakes - that way I didn’t have to share. I am, however, officially sick of eating cake.
