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.

Roast Vegetables with Balsamic
I was watching The Good Food Show on television and saw an interesting recipe for a roasted Vegetable Tart Tartin, excellent I shall make that for a healthy Supper, use up all those vegetables I hadn't used from Sunday Lunch, Then I realised I hadn't any puff pastry and lets face it life is simply to short to be bothered making it, so I decided to just have the roasted Vegetables and rather glad I did!
I cut in half a Fennel bulb, A beef Tomato, and a Red Onion, chopped into pieces a courgette and Aubergine, and Carrots Threw them into a roasting Tin and gave a generous glug of quality Olive Oil and a splash or two of Balsamic mixed them together with my hands
Sprinkled with Salt flakes quite generously Black Pepper and fresh Thyme
Put the whole lot into a preheated oven at 200c for an hour.... Do you know they were truly excellent, really enjoyed with some Crusty bread and a bottle of Red !!
