I first met Lady Magnon when I was an art student, living off beer and take-away chicken & chips. We students were not known for refined living, and usually the only decent meal I ate was when I visited my parents for the weekend.
I'd been 'making eyes' at Lady M for a while, when she asked my if I'd like to join her for dinner; I accepted at once.
She'd made Elizabeth David's recipe for 'Estofat de Beouf', which she served with Tagliatelle. It was delicious.
Then she served a perfect Tarte Tatin; I was extremely impressed.
Lady Magnon still occasionally makes a Tarte Tatin, but I haven't seen ED's beef stew for a while. It's true what they say about men, hearts, and stomachs. I recommend to any young woman (or man) to have a couple of really good guns in their holsters; ready to be drawn at any moment.
Why not the two above? I may not have been the best target on the range, but.....
