The meal in fact would not satisfy the judges of that television series for most aspects but it the meal - homely and ordinary as it may be - is one that we always seem to enjoy immensely.
Last year my contribution was to laboriously cut up the vegetables for the soup. I have no pretensions to being a cook. This year I focussed on photographing the preparation and outcome whilst two others did the bulk of actual cooking.
Even as photographer I didn't completely succeed at my task somehow managing to completely fail to photograph the sweet potato and pear suit which was the delicious starter.
Here are the other two courses.
|Home made beef pies|
|Pie, mashed potato, mushy peas and carrots|
|Baked Alaska (sponge, ice cram and meringue)|
This may not be a meal to merit 'hats' but we love this annual treat.
