My dear friend Liane of Cheap Thrills makes a really delicious oxtail stew.
While browsing the weekend newspaper recipes, I came across one - Nigel Slater's oxtail . Liane & I were unconvinced by his recipe because he left out the red wine so Liane offered to make the oxtail her special way for a treat again in the cold weather.
Who am I to argue with an offer like that? I made a Victoria Sponge cake for after supper ....
and she made her all day, slow cooked oxtail in red wine with shallots & herbs & then served it with roasted root vegetables.
We mopped up the juices with rosemary & garlic focaccia bread and WOW - what a spread!
Her house is always a delight for such 'bistro' suppers - warm tealights, music, lanterns, wine & of course lots of laughter & catching up!
Just the thing for a very cold night - warm food, warm company, happy times.
