Any invitation to eat with her is grabbed with dribbling enthusiasm because it is never disappointing and invariably a wonderful food experience (although I hated having to turn down a very kind invitation to sunday lunch today due to other commitments – aaaaagggggh!!).
Add to the gorgeous food, a convivial environment, good friends and a bit of wine, and it is guaranteed to be a good event.
We seem to have enjoyed Vicki’s efforts much more than she has enjoyed ours of late and by way of a small thank you, I thought it was about time Pearl Barley had her own apron.
So here we are.
I know she will use it, a more appreciative recipient for a gift, you will never meet.
