Screen shot 2009-12-27 at 09.48.56.png Boxing day is inevitably a matter of recovery, possibly exercise and cold turkey both literally and metaphorically. Livening up cold turkey is one of the key post-christmas skills and I will give one of the best recipes on Monday, but for Boxing day its a matter of keeping things simple. I always plan to cook too many tatws, so that the next day they can be thickly sliced and sautéed along with a few slices of black pudding.
