I can still remember being about 5yrs old, watching my Mum listen to the ‘Jimmy Young’ radio show and jotting down the recipe of the day. I thought my Mum was pretty cool doing this, even though I had to stay quiet during the broadcast! I still cook those recipes and this particular dish is a family favourite. I hope your families love it too.
