"I don't know how to make it, but I know when it is good"

The traditional dish served at a Manx wedding feast was broth which was eaten from wooden bowls knows as piggins and supped with mussel shells called sligs.
The guests travelled to church on horseback and when the ceremony was over they would gallop as fast as they were able to the bride's house. The first person to reach the house tried to catch a slipper from the bride's foot, and small pieces of wedding cake were scattered over her head as she was going inside. All the friends and relatives brought something towrads the feast and there would be a lavish spread of fowls and cold meats to follow the broth. A barrel of ale was put on top of a hedge outside the house for people who were not at the wedding, and inside there would be pleanty of jough (ale) and wine.
Although Ayrshire is traditionally the county where the best potatoes are grown, Arran Chief is a particularly good, waxy variety, ideal for salads. Of course, you can use any available variety which produces a firm, waxy texture when cooked.
An old English recipe. Please take your time caramelizing the onions - it's well worth the time & effort. Cheshire cheese is one of the oldest recorded cheeses in British history. It is dense and semi-hard, and is defined by its moist, crumbly texture and mild, salty taste. Industrial versions tend to be drier and less crumbly, more like a mild Cheddar cheese, as this makes them easier to process than cheese with the traditional texture.
French Tart, this is for you! When 4th of July rolls around in Bowerbank, Maine, it's off to the farmer's market for the first of the fresh peas!! Please don't overcook the tender sweet leetle things. ;)
Found for the World Tour 2005 - yet *another* version of Bread & Butter Pudding!! "Very fattening but lovely, and warming too on a cold winter night." He he. I have not made this *yet* so I guesstimated at some of the proportions (butter, brown sugar & fruit) - please adjust to taste.
This is a traditional part of our Christmas day dinner that has been wishy washy since my Grandmother died. I have only one 6 serving popover pan, so when I found this recipe at marthastewart.com, I was thrilled. My mother's recipe calls for putting the Yorkshires into a cold oven which is an impossibility so another thumbs up for this recipe. **It DOES call for resting/chilling for 4 hours - overnight, which is not included in the prep/cook time**. I just mixed it up in the morning. It wasn't fussy about cooktime - I started at the lower end of the recommended cooktime and checked it every 5 minutes. It just kept getting bigger & bigger!!! I cooked it for a total of 35 minutes. When it came out of the oven, Mom said it looked just like my Grandmother's. The ULTIMATE compliment. And my FIL wants a copy of the recipe. I also used a 9x13" pan so I could use the roasting pan for gravy. I had the leftovers for breakfast with a bowl of gravy. Yup, no kidding. Enjoy!
