Penguin Canapés

This past week The Penguin Post saw a great picture that someone had shared on Facebook.  It was a series of little photos showing how to make penguin canapés
– and they were AWESOME.Here’s what I we figured out:

1: You’ll need some soft cheese, pitted black olives, a carrot and some cocktail sticks.   The original picture just showed a tiny weeny scoopy kind of spoon full of nondescript soft cheese.  I don’t have a little scoopy spoon so I went for goat’s cheese, which I      knew I could roll into balls by hand. 

2: Peel the carrots and cut into slices roughly 4mm thick, then cut out a small triangle ‘beak’ from each. The larger bit is for the penguins’ feet.

3: Pop the beaks into the widest hole of the olives to make the penguins’ heads.

4: Spoon out the soft bits of the cheese and roll it (with very clean hands!) into small balls.

5: To make the penguin bodies, cut down one side of an olive.

6: Then insert the small ball of cheese.

7: Put the two olives together on one of the cut-out carrot slices and spear with a cocktail stick. Done!

8: Repeat – et voilá – a whole army of penguins!

Dining On Penguin A Treat For Students

September 29, 2010

The Penguin Post has learned that just outside of Sydney Australia Blessed Sacrament Primary School students dined with local dignitaries on board HMAS Penguin on August 30 to celebrate Captain John Hunter’s birthday. School captains Cara McGoldrick, Joe Tracey, Sophie Herring and Matthew McEnally were escorted by Mosman Mayor Anne Connon and HMAS Penguin Commander Gavin Baker to the Ward Room, which has spectacular views of Balmoral. After lunch, Lieutenant Commander Desmond Woods talked about the life of John Hunter, who was captain of the principal naval escort to the First Fleet. Students learned Captain Hunter saved the early settlers in the colony from starvation and was probably the first European to set foot in the Mosman area. “Our school captains were confident and interested ambassadors, and enjoyed this opportunity to focus on community heritage,” teacher Ellison Venables said. It’s not everyday that these students get to dine on penguin.
