Question for Lindsey
The grape harvest is done with for another year. We ended up with a pre harvest dinner and a post harvest dinner. In the pre harvest one we had the roast figs (using our own figs) and gorgonzola. It was brilliant, it went down very well with one or two want more cheese in future! The dessert was vanilla and strawberry pavlova without the strawberries as I couldn't find any so I used kiwi fruit.
The post dinner we did the roast Mediterranean vegetables with couscous and harissa, again a success. The dessert was the chocolate torte following your suggestions using milk instead of juice and Mascarpone and cream together. It worked very well.
All the Delia recipes were most successful but I think the figs just won by a whisker..
I wanted to let you know how things turned out.
Once again thank you for your help.
