Yum yum

Granny is a little late this morning. Guests are leaving etc etc. Granny has to put on yet another hat and turn accountant/cashier. They seem very satisfied and promise to recommend this establishment to Alastair Sawday. And how not when they are staying in the place illustrated above and eating food like this.... (These guests luckily are foodies and have adventurous tastes.)

Here follows some sample menus to get your taste buds working... Granny must, though, acknowledge the strong input from the 'Moro' cookbooks, much as their recipes are often adapted by Beloved or by her. What she really means is that she's too bloody EXHAUSTED to write anything. Menus will have to do. Sorry.

This is NOT going to turn into a cooking blog. To prove it you can now go here. It's up.

(Sometimes the way things are in the literary world Granny thinks she should turn to cooking full time.Or maybe not. The cooking she likes. What she doesn't like is the washing-up. Beloved doesn't either. That's why he doesn't do it much.)
