An ideal roast dinner would surely contain:
Yorkshires are for beef. Chicken and pork have stuffing instead.
Like, Yorkie bars.
i'd eat it.
It should be an additional potato dish, not a stand-alone.
a bit of steam comes out and then you put them in gravy and I ask for seconds.
But not boiled. Sliced thinly or into quarters and sauteed in butter with bacon and plenty of salt and pepper. I would eat them all year if I could.
Nasty flavour, unpleasant texture, smells like farts when it's cooking. Looks a bit like brains for added offputtingness.
It's not about the cauliflower though it's about the CHEESE
Leave the cauliflower be, it's perfectly happy looking like brains on the supermarket shelf
the fart smell and bad taste come only from overcooking
you need to blanche cauli, not boil it
Yorkshire Pudding with beef
sounds weird if you haven't tried it but lamb, mint sauce, gravy & cauliflower cheese is an IMMENSE flavour combination
sits wonderfully with roast potates & veg
but mainly parsnips, cos they're the king
minted or otherwise
make this a sweet potato and swede mash and I'll have a bit of both.
i mean when you fuck you don't jump straight into anal, you build up to it.
But in separate balls, not inside the meat. And home made, not Paxo.
Your mum likes it.
bet they don't

I went off gravy in about 1996 because of the BSE scare. (Yes, I still ate the meat. Somehow I thought that you were more likely to get CJD from the meat juices in the gravy.) I think by about 97 I'd realised that was stupid but I still didn't fancy gravy again until about a year ago.
Not only did my parents wholly igmore the 'scaremongering' that was going on, but they decided to show their support for our local farmers and butcher by eating pretty much nothing but beef for a few years. Our butcher also flouted the law and sold beef on the bone. he was a kind of local hero (happily, nobody died). Delicious.
See made me a roast once and didn't make any gravy. I was, like, wtf?! And she was like, stop moaning you pommie wanker, I've made you a roast. Good story.
It's over-rated though. Actually, it's more that it's over-used. There's no need to have the meal swimming in gravy. You've got loads of different flavours and textures to dances proactively on your palate. Why make them all taste exactly the same as each other?
Less is more.
but it's there now, so I'll just have to live with it.
This might just be somehting my Mum does.
except broad beans. broad beans can fuck off.
Apple sauce (w.pork)
I am starving!
Also, try putting some star anise in when you're boiling them, and a huge knob of butter. they go all glazed and taste kind of sweet and sourt. mmmmm.
I promised my girlfriend i'd make her one after they had run out at the pub last sunday.
This one in particular was a Baked Cornish brie & mushroom wellington.
Can't be too hard, just cook mushrooms with onion/celery and such all finely diced, roll it all up with brie inside.
I don't have much experience with Pastry so a little dubious. Might have a practice run before hand.
then just buy your pastry ready done. Chances are, unless you have a huge hitherto unkown aptitude for pastry making, your efforts will never be as good as the shop bought stuff (you get it in packs in the chilled section by the butter usually.) You want puff for a wellington, although some recipes will call for shortcrust (I'd always go for puff for a wellingotn). It's a piece of piss, usually comes ready-rolled so you just have to insert filling and seal then cook.
split it in half down its length, Mrs Knees then spreads quorns 'brussels pate' on this and then en-coutes it to make a wellington.....it works well and we have this at christmas
and she takes this 'short cut' to making the wellington, to give more time to do all the rest of the christmas accroutemants
I find the potato to rest of plate ratio always too high, they fill me up too quickly and leave less room for everything else.
cut up in to chunks and roasted with chunks of sweet potatoe, parnsip and potatoe
I had a veggie roast last night and it was just about ok.
I might need two plates though.
so you can just keep topping up
I'll have every single little bit. Cheers.
