Sorry, meant to take a picture but it smelled so good I had eaten it before I remembered the camera.

Tonight it was fresh sweetcorn drenched in butter and fresh milled black pepper, roast garden potatoes done in goose-fat and semolina, roast buttered parsnips, a blued aged steak of Charolais done with smoked garlic and homemade beetroot chutney. All greedily savoured in front of a blazing woodburner with a chilled wine. (And a salivating spaniel watching my every move!)

It doesn't get much better.

Pork chipolatas, new potato oven chips and steamed cabbage & leek. English mustard with the bangeros, a squirt of mayo on the chips and black pepper with the greens.

Hmm. 'part from the English mustard I could go that now for seconds; maybe a wholegrain mustard for me!

Roasted beets with a honey and mustard glaze, roasted shallots drizzled with a little anchovy paste and cold chicken from last night which was raised and "prepared" two hundred yds. from my front door :)

Roast chicken and the trimmings, apple and blackberry crumble- all fruit picked from the orchard and around the garden. Got more eggs from the chickens too. Just got another two now- so soon we should have three layers out of four hens- although I have a suspicion the non layer actually did lay yesterday. :)

Nice one Cam, there isn't a lot better in life than a fresh laid egg. Poached on toast from homemade loaf (sourdough), lashings of butter and a twist or two of pepper. If entertaining then a sliver of truffle on top to set the mood. Simple, elegant and sexy.

it's top notch eating for sure- and the pepper really makes it tasty!

I love crab....a stunning meat. I really like the brown meat too which is supposed to be the poor mans choice - but makes the best sandwiches in my view and beaten into an omlette its superb!

Try some Old Bay seasoning on the crab meat, it's lush

I have an old recipe for "Greek Seasoning" = mint, cinnamon, oregano and things.
Lamb kefthedes & tzatziki, twice baked potato, salady stuff.
