There are few things that would strike terror into any home cook’s heart like a visit from Delia for dinner! Is the cabbage seasoned well enough? Is the chicken skin crispy enough? Is there enough food? Is it hot enough etc etc? The list of stresses and potential for errors is vast! Just imagine it…….! And then imagine that the person who’s opinion and approval counted more than Delia’s was actually coming for dinner! Well this isn’t just make believe…….Today Aunty Janet and Uncle Keith is came for lunch!!!! Eekkk double, triple eeek!
Well the good news is Becksie pulled it off and we had a lovely time. Roast chicken, with Poppa’s potatoes (we used polenta instead of semolina), brussels, cauliflower, honey and thyme carrots, parsnips, red cabbage, leeks and gravy. All washed down with a homemade date and fig sticky toffee pudding!
