Nuffink to do wiv me mate. Lee's the boss 'ere, I just waffle a lot and because I belong to other similar fora, have a bit of an idea of how they work.

BUT I certainly would like to join you in welcoming Jan and or Richard Rogers of La Chouette B&B here. (And if that isn't as merciless a plug for them I don't know what is. But they made us thoroughly welcome when we went to stay and I'd recommend their place to anyone.)

Thanks Ian, and of course everyone else too. It's Jan as Richard's always too busy in the kitchen, although come to think of it....I usually am too, clearing up after him. These professional chefs!

For anyone passing through the Limousin, we can thoroughly recommend Ian's cooking and hospitality and will be staying there ourselves later this year. Hope this hasn't broken any forum rules. :?

We're serving Richard's sous-vide lamb to guests this evening, with of course home made mint jelly, made from the finest Limousin mint which we picked from a friend's garden in November.

Hi Jan (and Richard) and welcome to the Wildfood board. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

That meal sounds delicious. Lucky guests. :D

As for the clearing up - my husband is not a professional chef or anything remotely similar but he sure can use a lot of pots and pans in the kitchen... perhaps it's a man thing..... 8-)

Welcome La Chouette and all new Members

I am guessing you are named ofter the owl or do you play backgammon too?

(For those who are mystified - a Chouette in backgammon is a fun/money game played by a group in which it is the team against one person (the Box), rotating the Box & team captain according to wins)

http://www.bkgm.com/rules/chouette.html

I keep meaning to play more backgammon...Chouette is usually more fun than strict tournament play

It's flipping wonderful. Elsewhere I put up Richard's recipe with his permission, and I have to say that it made relatively ordinary New Zealand vac packed lamb taste like a million dollars (or would that be Euros?) Richard and Jan do a lot more cooking than we do, which is right and proper because he's a far better and more professional chef than I ever was.

We became friends when they came down several times and stayed with us while looking for houses, and as so often tends to happen, (VERY sadly) once they had bought somewhere, they no longer had the need to stay with us and were up to their eyeballs doing the place up. I hope that our little "swap breaks" become a regular event, partly because it's good to take a break before or after the rush of the holiday season and partly because it's just GREAT to be able to bitch about clients and be sure the others will know just what you mean!!

To say nothing of the pleasure of being able to learn some new dishes and techniques from Richard.

You really love it then. I look forward to tasting it, hopefully this year. I have a question but I'll put it on your sous-vide thread. :)

Yes I do. As a dish, it has a very happy combination of some modern techniques, (lamb served two ways, sous vide cooking with it's attendant tenderness and tastiness) while retaining the essential - to me - that ALL cooking should have, of letting the ingredients speak for themselves. And all that without too much work. Probably the two hardest jobs were the chining and French trimming.

Just a little courtesy hello from myself, to say that you have a brilliant forum........So much info here to take in, and shall take my time to digest all it's contents. As I know many of the name's here from the BBC Food Chat, I realise that that I shall be taking more advice and tips on culinary issue's from this forum, that I could ever put back in (always trying to play catch-up with the experts).

Best Regards to all.......Terry
