Easter has come and gone and we have all returned back to work after our long weekends. I have those now.
I did however take a moment to think about all of my chef friends or anyone stuck in hospitality this weekend. Roast after roast, booked up, slammed, tired and testy.
I sat in the sun. with gin.
I did however make everyone sit down for the obligatory Easter Sunday roast. “ITS TRADITION”, i shouted at my neighbor as she implied that it was much more bbq weather than roast weather.
i am not religious.. i am not scared of bbqs (well maybe a little bit) but i am a traditionalist and i do believe in having a roast when your meant to!!
It is, as the title suggests, an essential.
The roast for me symbolizes family, togetherness and pure happiness. What do you have at Christmas? A ROAST. what do you have at Easter? A ROAST. What comes to your mind when i say the words comfort food? A ROAST.
Its probably one of the only meals that people don’t chop and change, its perfect.
meat. veg, gravy. potatoes. ALWAYS YORKSHIRE PUDDINGS!
Come rain or shine, i will have a roast dinner everyday.
