Posts for everyone!
A couple of weeks, Cesca and I went to a very strange cafe. It was a cafe where not only do they serve food, but also ceramics!
The supplied ceramics were all unpainted and the task was to adorn the item before it was fired. Here is my attempt at a Coffee Cup, which I have given to my mum.
This is a recipe based on one by the great Jamie Oliver and the original is available online at his site.
I love well cooked lamb, the way the juices flow from the intensely flavourful meat together with the texture with real bite, well roasted is simply the quintessential British dish. This is my idea of cooking on a Sunday; instead of sitting there basting meat, sweating over potatoes or cutting up veg, this dish is entirely prepared in advance and then just left in the oven for four hours. That’s four hours down the pub, entertaining your guests or making love to your wife.
Four hours well spent!
After which, you will be presented with a lamb dish fit for a king and tasting succulent enough to entice even the most ardent beef fanatic.
I have made this dish many many times and there is a knack to it and a few simple rules that can really help turn this into something special.
Where I go to get away, not where I want to get away from!

Jolly Swagman Backpackers, Sydney, Australia
25th Jun 2008, 3 nights
Nice location. Fine interior. Not really for our age range, lots of drunk kids. WIFI/internet costs a rip-off in 2008! We moved on to Eva’s on the 28th (much nicer)
