Occasion

Sunday roast, I believe, should be a relaxed affair.  They often involve a cross section of generations and they should hopefully be delightful celebrations of family life.

In my unusual take on a roast chicken, accentuating the delicate flavour of the chicken rather than swamping it, the subtle notes of saffron, cumin and velvety lemon lift the chicken and create the juices for a wonderful gravy.

Menu

Saffron and preserved lemon-infused roast chicken

Curly cabbage with cumin

Buttered carrots with fresh coriander

Roast potatoes

Wine notes

I have listed below some of the wines I personally feel would match the food.

  • Main - A smooth Pinot Noir, New Zealand or French.  I think chicken is quite subtle and the lighter style red sets the tone.

Planning ahead

Ideally the cheesecake should be made the day before.

Setting the scene

Bring a dash of Moroccan sunshine to your table with some of our brightly coloured traditional serving plates and bowls, in cheerful yellow, bold turquoise and dazzling blue.  They add an instant touch of Morocco to your table.
