There’s nothing worse than a pile of washing up after a delicious feast, says Philippa Davis, who has provided three delicious recipes requiring minimal time spent with the Marigolds
I never tire of cooking for a houseful. I am more than happy to do all the required planning, shopping, prep and creating. However, what I do tire of is endless piles of washing up.
It can be quite demoralising knowing that at the end of every feast, after the last morsel of food has been scoffed, that there is still a pile of pans lurking in the corner waiting to be cleaned. There are several solutions to this problem. Firstly, delegation, although frankly this sometimes seems to take as much effort. Secondly, hire an army of staff, also not without its challenges. Finally, create less washing up to begin with.
I can’t help with the first two but you will be pleased to hear that this month’s recipes require minimal time in the Marigolds.
And one more tip: as we approach the end of the game season, I suggest using the poaching cooking method for the gamebirds’ legs as it not only creates a delicious stock but also keeps the meat tender.
