SUNDAY LUNCH. I just have enough time to unpack while I wait for my husband who is flying in from Venice and be off for a late Sunday lunch with author and Christie's Magazine editor in chief, Meredith Etherington Smith and her divine husband Jeremy and their dogs Algy a Chelsea Terrier and Byngo (above) a Norfolk Terrier. After a few very spicy Bloody Mary's, lunch is served. It is good to be back in England and I'm so looking forward to (and so is Byngo) a delicious Sunday lunch. Meredith is a wonderful cook, she always uses the best meats, the freshest vegetables and the most simple ingredients are instantly turned into a feast: A rolled rib of beef with perfect roast potatoes, carrots and leeks are served with the best horseradish sauce we have ever tasted. And, to finish a Kouign Amann, an apple cake invented in 1865, in Bretagne. Heavenly!
