Jamie Oliver’s roast chicken recipe. it was, well, perfect!  the comments were actually more like “pretty good” and “we’ll come again” (: good size for a company of five

everything works according to recipe, except for the gravy. definitely no where near the name “consistently good gravy“. i added too much white wine and maybe the ratio to the chicken stock was not proportionate. also i didn’t think plain flour was correct, should be corn starch isn’t it? just so that the sauce thickens. and the taste was pretty average despite such promising ingredients (leftover of the roast chicken base). oh and the chicken can stay in the oven abit longer (crispier perhaps)

(only after AN’s help :P)

AN brought the Guiness chocolate cake where she cut it into dainty bite sizes (: and AC made “real” mushroom soup (dubbed “better than Campbell soup”). amazing company and easy cook out with a list of order of what they’ll like to eat for the next invite. or maybe it’s just AC
