two big things that I just happen to have sat in my photo folder at this moment..
Partridge, rubbed in butter & wrapped in parma ham, served on a bed of new potatos, with appropriate vegtables.
I know probably doesn't sound much, but never had partridge before so was quite a big experiment on my part, to prepare and cook. espcially as the partridge was from a friend who owns a farm and hadn't been plucked very well, so had to be cleaned up etc. A warning for people who wish to try iot, it's possibly the most "Gamey" thing I have ever eaten in my life, very very nice, but very very strong.
A pretty old one this, a cake I made for my better half, can you guess what film I was dropping hints that I wanted to go see...
It worked anyway, inside was two sponge cakes, with cream and jam, layered on top of each other, and sculpted into the shield shape. Coloured the icing myself, took about 3 weeks to get the red off of my hands . Beer bottle was for scale, and taste
And incase anyone is wondering about different work tops, the top one was done in the our holiday home, and the bottom one at home.
