It’s about now I look at my diary and get a marginal sense of fear – Christmas is less than four weeks away, I’ve been booked to cater for a load of parties, I’ve written two words on my Christmas gift list (no socks!) and I’ve got to get the ordering sorted for our Christmas lunch at home. Help!
While I was planning frantically what dishes the Leigh family will be tucking into on Christmas Day (and I’m the first to admit to being a traditionalist when it comes to our lunch) an email arrived from my great friend and champion of Spanish cooking, Jose Pizarro.
If you haven’t seen his book, Seasonal Spanish Food yet, it is definitely one to add to your Christmas wish-list. This laid back recipe is perfect for Christmas Eve, when his family traditionally eat it and uses one of the most delicious and accessible game birds – the partridge.
