I love a roast dinner. Depending on my mood, my favourite is either roast lamb or roast pork. Or roast chicken. Or beef. Basically I love roasted animal of any kind – but in my mind it’s all about the roast potatoes, the perfect roast potato is a glorious thing. The thing about roast dinner is that there are a lot of trimmings, to really make it right. You’ve got to have Yorkshire puddings, and stuffing. At least three types of veg. Gravy. Maybe some pigs in blankets. The whole thing takes a lot of time and effort to prepare, and then the whole lot gets scoffed in a disproportionately small number of minutes.
