Saturday night treat
January 3rd 2009
Fillet steaks marinated in a mixture of red wine, black peppercorns, cumin seeds and smoked paprika.
The rest of the marinade was made into a sauce to go with the steak.
Herby Potato Bake: matchstick potato mixed with crispy fried fresh rosemary, dried thyme, crispy fried garlic slices, freshly ground sea salt and black pepper, freshly ground nutmeg, a packet of Boursin Herbs and some double cream. Topped with Cheddar Cheese and baked in the oven until brown. The potato sticks still had that al-dente texture to them - this was one of my best experiments for a long time.
Steamed tenderstem broccoli.
Cherry tomatoes on the vine baked in the oven with a little olive oil, balsamic vinegar and freshly ground black pepper.
Beer battered onion rings.
Wholegrain mustard and horseradish relish.
