Being The 31st of October 2008...

Welcome to The City Folk Club Cookery Course...
For our first dish...

Kangaroo Tail Fricassee.

Time: About 3 hours.
Ingredients: 1 tail, 2oz. of dripping, 1oz. of flour, 1 onion sliced, 1 carrot sliced, half a small turnip sliced, 2 or 3 sprigs of parsley, 1 bay-leaf, 2 cloves, 1 blade of mace, 1 dessertspoonful of lemon-juice, salt and pepper, stock or water.

Method: Divide the tail at each joint, cover with cold water, bring to the boil, then drain and dry well. Fry the joints lightly in hot dripping, then take them up and stir in the flour. Fry until well browned, add the stock and stir until it boils, then put back the tail and add the vegetables, herbs and spices. Season to taste, cover closely, and simmer gently until tender. Arrange the tail on a hot dish and strain the sauce over.

Right, that's dinner sorted out...
