Grab a Handful

I have a beef stew in the slow cooker today. It is a very rough and ready recipe, which changes easily depending on what ingredients I have. Very roughly:

Venison Meatball in Leek and Mushroom Sauce.

Life has been a bit busy, lately, and mealtimes hard to predict; so I have had my fortnightly Riverford fruit and veg box suspended for a while. Of course, I forgot to check when the deliveries would resume, and so I got home last night, after a day out, to find the box sitting by my gate, drenched by the rain. My fault, both for forgetting, and not leaving them somewhere sheltered to put it.

In Praise of Pastry

First of all – hello! I’m Jo, and I’ve known Chris for an awfully long time now, and eaten many a home cooked meal with him.  I’m delighted that he asked me to contribute to his blog, since I’m a keen cook and love to share my foodie thoughts. I thought I’d start with something pretty basic – pastry.
