The kitchen is clean, my apron (yes I wear a great frilly colourful apron) is in the wash, the dishwasher is on. There’s a large jar of spiced cranberry sauce, 1 jar of goose fat and 2 two jars of goose liver pate all set to give away. Darina Allen’s recipe uses brandy but I only had whisky to hand so used that instead – Islay Barley form the Bruichladdich distillery on Islay. The bottle reads “We believe terroir matters”. Well so do I.
