Garden flowers and apple tart.
We had many visitors yesterday,
three of them Japanese girls from Kyoto University, one a college friend,
two of them our highly expectant son and daughter-in-law.
Watercress soup,tarragon chicken with tomato chilli fondue
from the Ballymaloe cookbook
(one not jettisoned because of the holiday memories it holds),
butternut squash risotto and rocket and watercress salad,
the first baked apples of the season and a fancy apple tart
and cream with salted caramel ice cream.
