We have just had lunch and I couldn't wait to say that it was a DC inspired success.
I have wanted to make Robo's pork Dijon since I read the recipe
and I thought today was the day. I am not as enthusiastic about pork chops as I am lamb chops,and I usually grill them, so I was looking forward to trying something new but simple. But, inbetween laying the stuff out on the worktp and answering the door a well meaning and early arriving guest started interfering in my kitchen (grrr) and I got distracted and went off piste entirely!
In the end having deglazed the pan with white wine I added with the mustard and the cooking apples my "helpful guest" had started peeling and chopping, a little honey and a big glug of calvados, and then the cream. So although I fussed with what sounded like perfection it was yummy and I look foreward to trying Robo's original next time!
We had Anna del Conte's Melon with apple juice syrup as a sweet starter to avoid serving pudding And I have managed to get everyone fed. They are staying to discuss french literature with my mother but I am free for the afternoon now. Yippee.
Whats everyone else eating today?
