The invites were out...
The RSVP's were back...
We were all ready to ...
All the pork recipes on the menu were taken from the book I was given when I visited Jimmy's Farm. I know, I know, I had Jimmy sign it over to Claire as she had just left home to live in the middle of the countryside. Honestly, I have let her read it... once... and she loved it, the game recipes and real country feel of this book is right up her street!Like I was saying, I used the book for the pork recipes, it was very easy to follow, a great read in its own right and I promise I will now give it back to its rightful owner!
We nibble these as appetisers with drinks
- Stuffed hock with trotters
- BBQ Sheet ribs
- Mini pork souvalaki (From Falling Cloudberries by Tessa Kiros)
- Traditional Rustic French Bread

We had a choice of two desserts ( No real photos of them as the wine was flowing and the kids were impatient, I did capture the chocolate sauce that managed to stick itself to Arty's face... does that count?)
- Apple Brown Betty & Pouring cream
- Homemade Profiteroles with dark chocolate sauce
- Buzzards Valley English Regional Wine
- Pinot Grigio
- Stella Artois
- Cherry Tango
The conversation flowed....
