As an Englishman living in Europe for years, this blog is about the recipes we have made for dinner and lunch parties for friends and family over the years.
I can think of nothing in life that is more pleasurable and fun than to sit down with old friends eating and drinking proper home made food made from seasonal fresh ingredients, enjoying some local wines.
The sort of Lunches that last into the night. Lunches Memories are made of.

Chicken Mashed Potato and Mixed Vegetables in Wine and Stock
I have had a craving all Summer for mashed potatoes, I just love them, comfort food at it's best, Creamy buttery light fluffy mashed Potatoes with grilled then oven roasted Chicken, you know it makes sense. Chicken and Mash are simply the very best of friends and as a gesture to health settled on some mixed vegetables sautéed in a little Olive oil with white wine and a little stock. Which made a super little Gravy
I know it's perhaps not the prettiest plate of food, It's so unchallenging to cook it doesn't need a recipe, But you could have offered me Caviar and Lobster, I would still have gone for this naughty little dish. Comfort food at its very best.
