January ‘Meanderings’ …

Once the New Year celebrations are over what is needed is warming and filling food against the inevitable Winter chill.  It is a time for thick tasty soups, hot pies and stews: comfort food at its best.  Here are some more favourites.  We enjoy warm spiced plums at any time as they are so warming in the cooler weather but this year I used them cold in our New Year Mulled Plum Trifle.  There are two family favourites: Leek & Potato Soup – Vichyssoise and a Pork & Beetroot Pie (or casserole if you prefer).  Finally I am sharing my method of cooking crispy Roast Potatoes, with the added crunch of sesame seeds.
