Book it. Go. Gorgeous.
best roast dinner in London...
is yours served on a huge tray with the meat carved, huge yorkshire puds, perfect roasties, carmelised parships, red cabbage to die for,freshly grated from the root horseradish and crusty bread to suck up all the remainder of the gravy that all the veggies have been cooked in?
If so, I'm coming round next Sunday!
Btw, the beef was simply amazing. We spent £84 on beef today. There was 6 of us. Whoops.
Who am I kidding. It was worth every penny.
i can actually do this, yes.
but it's more a case of having good work space to prep in and so on. i used to make mean roasts every sunday religiously.
i long for those days again (housemate is vegetarian - silly bugger)... and am sure they shall come again soon.
and a brand new kitchen and living area being installed so ask me in about 8 weeks time and I'll reconsider... :)
i have no housemate and i do a roast every week!
In fact, I loathe it. Meals and food time are for sharing. It's the way I was brought up, ie European household...
I think that preparation is most definitely the key. Especially when it comes to correctly fluffing potatos and parsnips. It's all in the varieties you buy and the correct freshness.
A good workspace with plenty of room helps and a decent oven with even distribution of temperature is a necessity.
My roasts are always good, but my beef with home made horseradish and my family yorkshire pudding recipe make things tip top!
That said as good as mine is, it's still nowhere near as good as my mums. Her secret ingredient is love.
it just is
been meaning to try St.Johns though (presume you mean the one in Archway?)
I have been to the Lord Stanley, but not for Sunday Lunch. My girlfriend was so impressed by the pate, when we did eat there, that she took the leftovers home with us.
= 10 mins walk from my house. rarrrr.
i have, however, only been in there once. and didn't eat. cos it looked expensive. but now i'm tempted.
It's around a tenner, which isn't too bad considering how good it is.
I keep coming up with The Griffin...
