Anthony Sargeant cooked this for supper (see immediate previous post) – the mutton was taken from a rack which was deboned and sliced – the mutton has a more intense flavour than lamb and carefully cooked it can be served pink with well cooked fat on the outside.
Mutton has a more intense flavour than the simple sweetness of lamb. Anthony Sargeant bought this mutton from Ludlow Food Centre. Here it is resting for 10 minutes before being deboned and sliced. It is still unusual to find mutton in British shops but it is very special and well worth finding a source – Highly recommended.
Anthony Sargeant prepared this supper last weekend: slices of boned chicken leg were stuffed with wild garlic butter and served with with sauteed new potatoes and crispy chicken skin on leeks.

Anthony Sargeant prepared and cooked this Poussin (small young chicken) then divided it into two portions. It is worth the effort of removing the backbone and rib cage leaving just the leg and wing bones in the portion served up.
Alliteration is fun – but also the sea bream with crispy skin was delicious. Served on a bed of Sweetheart cabbage with a few crushed potatoes. Easy to prepare and inexpensive.
Such a simple meal. Anthony Sargeant put this together yesterday evening (it would be pretentious to call it ‘cooking’) – fresh English asparagus from a local Shropshire farm, a poached egg, some local ham, and a spoonful of hollondaise. So simple.

Wild Garlic (Allium Ursinium) grows in great profusion around the wooded lanes close to the Shropshire, England, home of Anthony Sargeant. In sunny spots it is already flowering but in the shade of the stone wall it is still only in leaf. It is a very useful plant for cooking (and makes excellent pesto. But best of all it is free! However if you do find some please cut in a way that ensures sustainability (you are allowed to cut the leaves – but it is illegal to dig up the bulbs). Just take a few leaves from each clump so that the bulbs can survive for next year.
