John Dory with fennel purée…to try this dish. It’s too good to keep to myself. In recent times, I have been making the case for keeping it simple. This has been more of a reflection of how I am trying to live my life (trying and failing) than for any higher gastronomic purpose. In an effort to prevent world shortage and escalating prices, I have tried to dissuade you from buying beef short ribs. You discouraged yourselves when it came to monkfish cheeks. So you might be surprised when I highly recommend you try something of truly spectacular quality and ease of preparation. 

We were sitting looking at the view of Scotsman’s Bay in Dun Laoghaire. “Provenance old man.” said L as we enjoyed one of those barely warm, sunny spring mornings.  “Take those apple and sage sausages you enjoy so much. What’s their provenance? You haven’t got a clue, have you?” I had to admit that I had no idea who, how or where they were made. I have faith in my butcher. L is less trusting than I and he chastised me for my naivety. I don’t like having my shortcomings, real or imaginary, exposed. So I resolved to redress the situation by preparing my own range of sausages from scratch.
