Week’s menu for March No 2

“Cooked as it should be, this much derided and often ridiculed dinner is still something very special indeed”

In search of perfection… via a short cut or two…

For this week then the dinner party menu is the famed Great British Menu. And there are other classics such as chicken liver pate and bubble and squeak. But the chicken with Paris pastry and the sea bass accompanied by the Thai coconut rice add a touch of the exotic. It’s St David’s day today so you could watch the gentle, feel-good, Englishman who went up a hill, but came down a mountain, which stars Hugh Grant, as usual charmingly playing himself, and is all about Welshness (see clip below). The soundtrack is equally gentle – just what you need when attempting the albeit pared-down challenge of the  Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte.
