I am not the world’s biggest meat eater. In fact it was only last night that I pondered why exactly, people upon first meeting me, politely enquire whether or not I am a vegetarian! Whilst it is not uncommon for my friends to affectionately refer to me as a hippy, I’m not entirely convinced I deserve the title. Yes, I may be one of the few people I know without a TV and it is true that I recoil at the thought of compostable scraps surreptitiously making their way into my rubbish bin, but in today’s day and age aren’t those things just natural responses to our changing world?
So forgive me if this wee introduction doesn’t wax meaty lyrical, I just can’t find it in me. I can however say that this a beautiful dish. Understated in its construction and ingredients, it is one of those simple meals which relies on quality ingredients and perfect cooking times. And when these things come together it is sure to please the more carnivorous amongst us!
