Sunday slow food: a roast

After spending Friday night and the whole of Saturday at the basketball court watching Lucy and Charlotte playing their first inter-school tournament in Bangkok (their team, the British Patana School came second), and a lot of fast plays and fast food, we were in for “slow food” on Sunday.

A traditional Sunday roast of sirloin beef, Yorkshire pudding, green vegetables and some roast potatoes was just the right stuff to make everybody happy.

The Yorkshire pudding was prepared by my daughter Charlotte. She succeeded with this delicate undertaking; the pudding was delicious. Actually, it was the first Yorkshire pudding I ever tasted in my life.

Needless to say that the wine matched the food perfectly. I just love our own Merlot, especially the 2004 vintage. It’s such an elegant wine, with balanced acids and lots of red fruit character. Fortunately, we discovered some more bottles when inventorying our stocks in January.
