A Summers Delight: Boozy Roasted Chicken with Muscadel and Grapes
April 17, 2018
Ah summer is over, and we are into our second month of Autumn. To be completely honest I am glad summer is over. This was my hottest summer I had ever experience. Very stupidly, we moved to Worcester just the beginning of December. If anyone knows Worcester,it gets really really hot!! If you don’t know Worcester, it can easily get to 45°C – 47°C. You know you have acclimatized when when you noticeably say: “Wow today is lovely and cool and the temperature is staggering 31°C!
Not all is bad! Summer produces some of my favourite fruits, grapes, watermelon, peaches, strawberries and pineapples. And #1 ICE-CREAM, however I never need an excuse to eat ice cream.
Fruit can be a magical accompaniment with meat – you get a lovely sweet and savoury combination, adding some red muscadel, adds another level to the accompaniment.
