Welcome home

The husband had been away "Do"ing his thing in Wales.  He was welcomed home by a good fish supper, Elizabeth David of course.  Red mullet cooked in vine leaves, picked from the garden and globe artichokes (down in price in Bramleys).  The fish was good and really took on the flavour of the leaves and was served with melted butter.  The globe artichokes were good served with a vinaigrette.  I like cooking them whole, I don't get the benefit of cutting out the choke and just cooking up the heart.  I love the crescendo of chewing the leaves as they get tenderer until you reach the nectar in the middle.  The chips were courtesy of Hobbs House Bistro.
