A hearty Sunday dinner today.

Wild boar sausages from Robert & Edwards in Reigate, served with mash potatoes (nothing fancy done with them; only olive oil, salt, a knob of butter and a splash of double cream) and onion gravy, the onions having been roasted with the sausages.

Dessert finished off the last of the Christmas leftovers, with half a panettone being sliced and broken up to use instead of bread in a middle-class version of the classic bread and butter pudding.

Perfect comfort food for a snowy Sunday and I couldn’t help taking a chef’s pride in seeing empty plates all round.
