2016 is the year of simple cooking.
Buy fewer, better quality, ingredients. Did I get the punctuation right there?
I’m not saying that I’m going to be buying less good stuff. I’m saying that I’m not going to be buying as much stuff, but that the quality of the stuff that I will be buying will be better.
I think I did get the punctuation right.
Anyway, to that end, I took the smaller child to the local butcher yesterday morning and we bought some homemade boerewors and a phat chunk of fillet, which I braai’d in the afternoon. It was eaten with some fresh crusty bread and some green salad. Nowt fancy.
The fillet marinade was smoked paprika, coriander seeds and Hendo’s. Nowt fancy.
I recognise that Heston Blumenthal is spinning in his grave at the lack of polystyrene candy floss, and he’s not even dead yet, but I’m of the mind that when the food is of a decent quality, it should be allowed to speak for itself.
This, though I say it myself, chatted rather beautifully.
