Plus, of course, she covers the use of marinating, barding, larding, basting and dredging. the recipes would not be complete without a range of potato and vegetable dishes that are ideal accompaniments. From the best roast potatoes and mash to gratins, gravies and sauces. But the best part of any roast is often the leftover meat that makes a delicious ingredient for leftover meals. A joint of meat can stretch a very long way, from Shepherd pies, rostis, soups, stews, to much more, and this book will have you rediscovering the very best of a roast.
