Spring is here

Spring has arrived in the UK, and this means some good food is available. At Borough Market last weekend we purchased some of the first Lincolnshire asparagus of the season. It was quite expensive, but very good indeed. We also got some Jersey Royal new potatoes. We cooked these both up with some quail for Sunday dinner. It was perhaps the only meal we have cooked in which the vegetables were more expensive than the meat. The potatoes were the best we’ve had in some months.

Here is the quail barded with goose fat and bacon ready for roasting.
