Tomorrow's Telegraph

Back in October I had a fun but frantic two days cooking with Rose Prince for the Telegraph Christmas Food and Drink supplement shoot.

Over the two days we had to cook 3 roasts (a turkey, five rack of beef and the biggest piece of ham I have ever seen that wasn't actually a whole pig), 5 sides, 1 vegetable main, 1 leftover curry, 1 trifle and 50 mince pies (all handmade, yes).

There was a great buzz in the kitchen during those two days. The time pressure and the multiple, mouthwatering and aromatic layers of smells. The variety of sounds; the rushing hiss of frying pans, the gentle drone of the oven, the loud gurgle of the coffee machine. Pots clanging and knives chopping.

And then the tasting. It was a very sensual and vastly enjoyable experience.

All I can say is that there are a heap of beautifully illustrated recipes for some fantastic Christmas flavours in this supplement. It comes free with tomorrow's Telegraph (26/11/11), so do go and grab yourself a copy!
