LUSCIOUS LUNCHES: Sea Bass, Smashed Potatoes & Silky Veg

Sea bass is one of my favourite fish but it is quite expensive so we don’t have it often.

Last weekend Glyn and I had a fantastic time at the Abergavenny Food Festival in Wales. This festival happens every year in September and is a bit like the Edinburgh Fringe Festival except that, instead of the town being covered in comedy, it is covered in FOOD!
