         It's a bit of work to get the stew cooking, then all is easy.  Celeriac vary in size: we'll use a bit more in the risotto on Sunday, and if you still have some left, add it to the pasta on Thursday. The rest of the Stew and Mash will be used on Monday.

Tomato Flan with Couscous Salad

Total time: 35 minutes
       Tomato Custard!  Light, and easy to make, it's surrounded by a bit of couscous salad

Tomato Flan with Couscous Salad  Ingredients:


Pork and Celeriac Stew

Total time: 1 hour 40 minutes
   The spices used in this are from a recipe for Wild Boar Stew, but work very well with domestic pork. The juniper berries give it a wintry, woodsy flavor.  If you have the time, marinate the pork in the red wine for a few hours before cooking. This makes enough for 2 meals.
