Roasts

Although far fewer families sit down to a regular roast dinner every weekend, the fact remains that this is one of the easiest ways of cooking a well-balanced meal – and one of the most delicious. The important thing to remember is that taste really does tell, so it is worth buying the best meat, game, poultry, and fish you can afford. Cultivate a good butcher and fish supplier or buy from a recommended source specializing in free-range, additive-free or organic meat or fish. Regard dishes such as Marmalade-Glazed Goose or Stuffed Loin of Pork as special treats and you’ll enjoy them all the more..
