“from sainsburys magazine Jan 2010, this is a suggested accompaniement for an alternartive Italian xmas donner featuring roasted butternut squash turkey saltibooca with parma ham, beetroot rosti and salmon, brussel sprouts with garlic, breadcrumbs and pecorino and limencello trifles- sounds well nice!!!!!! my husband wont got for it tho, hes decided he wants chicken for xmas this year with a bit of game on the side or somthing. ive not made this yet i intend to with some lamb. this dish reminds me of the one thing my mum could cook- roast whole onions. She will never be a genius in the kitchen, she cant even make sandwiches very well.”
