Now that I’m back home, the theme somehow automatically changed. I didn’t even realise it until I was making lunch today. This recipe is for the meat and potato lover. There’s nothing subtle about it: juicy rump steak, red wine, horseradish, boiled potatoes. It’s earthy, robust and deeply coloured with a rough taste, and as good as the wine you use. Yet, it wasn’t a decidedly winter meal, it still had a light feeling to it.
The weather today turned out to be sunny, even warm for a moment. So up we went to the terrace to eat and enjoy. Moments like these are what make for a happy life in the end. Unexpected, unpretentious, with the ones you love, good friends, food and laughter. Very happy moments.
