Before I move on to more recent cooking, I must post a few words about my Birthday meal at the Cuckoo which was a lovely leisurely Sunday lunch with my whole family. We were once again looked after by the lovely host, Toby, and treated to hearty portions of home-cooked foods.
I started with delicious gnocchi with crayfish in a light creamy tomato sauce which had a subtle hint of chilli. Followed by roast beef with all the trimmings, one of the best I've had. Dessert was sticky toffee pudding - delicious!
Unfortunately we have no more family Birthdays until May, but we're looking forward to our next visit.
