You really should give yourselves a night out with our special one off degustation dinners (or lunch). It has been fun selecting the menus and many of my recipe books have "stickers" on their pages as I try out some of the recipes and alter a few.
The dinners are limited to 12 people and could be considered as a fine dining experience. Michael and I enjoy entertaining and experimenting with new recipes...so come join us some time.
The fire goes day and night now to keep the winter blues at bay, but we have been lucky with some sunny (if cold) days to brighten our spirits.
