I’m not sure what exactly this is, because it’s somewhere between lunch and dinner. Dunch? Linner?
Whatever we call it, it’s a very full plate of very good food. It’s also, almost certainly, the final meal of the 2017 Cookery Project.
Going clockwise, we have roasted pork loin with dried California peaches, pan drippings seasoned with orange juice, and cilantro. The potatoes were roasted with tarragon, and the Brussels sprouts were cooked with golden raisins and shallots, then sprinkled with crumbled bacon.
Not the traditional turkey or goose, but a nice change. Colourful, isn’t it?
★ Disaster. Inedible. Poisoned the cat.
★★ OK, but once is enough.
★★★ Mixed results. Something went wrong, but might try this again.
★★★★ Good, but lacks that special something.
★★★★★ Excellent. Goes into my “This is a winner” file.
