Friday, 24th January 2014None of this really worked. Even the photo is crap.
I tried the standard approach of quickly searing the meat and then finishing in the oven, but it didn't work. The skin was not nearly cooked enough and was inedible. The meat was mostly rather chewy although, like the curate's egg, OK in parts. The roast potatoes and and turnip didn't brown. The leek was OK, but putting cranberries from a jar in was a mistake as they were far too sweet. Might work with fresh cranberries, but those weren't available. Meh.
