Was it good? Sounds great. I have loads of pork chops in the freezer as they are always the last bit that gets used. I think I may try this at the weekend.

Very good. It's a surprisingly good book. Sean got it out of the library and skimming through there's nothing that doesn't sound good.

sounds lovely

I used half-fat creme fraiche instead of yoghurt.

Ummm I have a pheasant in the freezer and some puy lentils in the pantry. I feel tomorrows dinner is sorted - just go and get the pheas out

All the best
