A few of my favourite things




I had been running around in the rain all morning doing boring things like going to the bank and laundry so I thought I would treat myself to one of my favourite things; a bowl of jerusalem artichokes in truffle oil. Pure heaven. It amazes me that just two ingredients can make such a fantastic dish. I just peel, slice and boil the artichokes and dress them in good truffle oil, nothing simpler.

While I was eating it I was thinking about all the other things I apsolutely adore eating. Here are the top 5 (in no particular order):

1. Oysters with shallot vinegar (and maybe a pint of stout)
2. English asparagus with hollandaise
3. Perfectly cooked blue steak with bearnaise
4. Dover sole meurniere
5. Moules frites

With the jerusalem artichokes I guess that is technically 6 but who's counting!
