Wishin' and Hopin': A Novel
In Wally Lamb’s pitch perfect new novel, it is 1964. LBJ and Lady Bird are in the White House, Meet the Beatles is on everyone’s turntable, and ten-year-old Felix Funicello (distant cousin of the iconic Annette!) is doing his best to navigate fifth grade—easier said than done when scary movies still give you nightmares and you bear a striking resemblance to a certain adorable cartoon boy. But there are several things young Felix can depend on: the birds and bees are puzzling, television is magical, and this is one Christmas he’s never going to forget.83% (13)
Lots of awards and the Telegraph review...
Telegraph review on the door: Are you ready to order? This week: two restaurants in Suffolk (Filed: 20/08/2005) Jan Moir finds mixed results at two Suffolk eateries, the Lighthouse and 152 Aldeburgh Opposite me, some dried-out old crab. But I ignore her and carry on with my lunch. In a moment of weakness during a walk along the shingled beach, I agree to a request from S that he is allowed, for once, to begin this week's review. OK? See above. It's done. Now let's move swiftly on. Gold star: 152 comes recommended At the height of the summer season, the Suffolk town of Aldeburgh is en fete. Bunting decks the high street and flutters around the handsome seafront houses as the town prepares for its annual carnival. Visitors roam from shell-craft gallery to seascape gallery, while whole families tuck into fish and chips on the beach or visit the funfair. It is beautiful here, with light-washed skies and fresh air that fizzes with ozone. Benjamin Britten loved Aldeburgh and so did Orlando the marmalade cat, who came here on holiday in 1952. In the town's lovely bookshop, it is Orlando, not Harry Potter, who is the literary star. Created by Kathleen Hale nearly 70 years ago, Orlando has eyes like twin gooseberries and, on his Aldeburgh holiday, he ate some prawns that were horrible and hard, like spectacles legs. Meow! Let's hope things have improved since then. Certainly, the runes seem good. The Lighthouse is perhaps Aldeburgh's best-known establishment - a 90-seat bistro-style fish restaurant spread over two floors. It has a fine-looking exterior, plus unpretentious wooden furniture and a friendly air within. Best of all, one of the owners, Sara Fox, also runs the Aldeburgh Cookery School. Arresting news, especially when one considers that she has not only trained "dozens of chefs" in her spare time but also still has a "hands-on" approach to the restaurant. Hands on what, I wonder, after sampling the basket of stale bread dispatched by the waitress. The till? On this Sunday evening, a prime session for any resort restaurant, the place is packed. Customers consider the daily catch specials, which feature lobster, crab, skate, slipsoles and plaice, or choose from an a la carte that features hearty bistro fare such as Barnsley lamb chops; local sausages and mash with broccoli cheese; duck breast with chilli jam; calves' liver and bacon; and smoked haddock gratin. We begin with a bowl of cockles rendered tasteless because they have been over chilled and a bottle of so-so basic Chablis (?17.95) that is too warm. This cack-handed approach to temperature control becomes a motif of the evening, although a special mention must be made of the home-made taramasalata that is also served as an appetiser, which is rich and smoky with a nice lemony lift and much enjoyed. Yet other basic and simple dishes, such as S's half-lobster salad starter and my dressed crab with herb mayonnaise, are just plain depressing. Again, both dishes are far too chilly, perhaps just hauled out of the farthest recesses of the restaurant's cold room seconds before being served? The shellfish are clearly of good quality, but the lobster has become dry and the icy crab is granular and unpleasant, in an Orlando's spectacles legs kind of way. If a restaurant is not going to lovingly shepherd and take care of its basic ingredients from purchase to finished plate, then it is a total waste of time for everybody concerned, especially when the main courses are equally grim. Both the slipsole and, particularly, the grilled plaice are overcooked to the point of squishy wantonness, and would the Aldeburgh Cookery School please write this down: it is far too late in the season to cook broad beans with their skins on and, some would argue, that it is too far too late for broad beans, full stop. Meanwhile, satellite items such as herb butters, mayonnaise, salads and salad dressings, plus a nice chocolate pot, are all prepared with a care and skill that suggests we have caught The Lighthouse on an off-night. Yet high summer should be its finest hour, not its darkest day, and, in the end, I am minded not to be charitable, because the quality of our meal and the basic ineptness of the cooking and service are unforgivable. We have better luck at 152 Aldeburgh, a sunny and simple restaurant on the other side of the high street towards the centre of town. It has wipe-clean tables that are equally packed with hungry customers, but someone in the kitchen who appears to know what they are doing. Granted, the lunchtime menu is smaller (but so are the prices) and I could have done without my panoramic view of the bins under the sink in the bar area, but I have no cavils about the fresh and tasty three-course Sunday lunch it serves for ?17.50. Starters such as chicken and mushroom terrine with home-made chutney use quality ingredients with competence, although the deep fried lamb sweetbreads seem a bit pointless, even if tMartini Leg of Lamb
Martini Lamb 5 lb leg of lamb (up to 6) ----MARTINI PASTE---- 1/2 medium onion, chopped 10 cloves garlic 1 lemon, juice & zest of 3 tablespoon gin 2 teaspoon kosher salt 1/4 cup olive oil ----MARTINI MOP (OPTIONAL---- 1 cup gin 1 cup beef stock 2/3 cup water 1 lemon , juice of 2 tablespoon olive oil The nite before, prepare paste. In food processor, combine the oinion, garlic lemon, gin and salt and process to combine. Continue processing, pouring in the oil until a thin paste forms. Generously spread the paste on the lamb. Place lamb in plastic bag and refrigerate overnite. Prepare smoker bringing temp. to 200°-220°. Remove meat from icebox let sit at room temp. for 30 min. Mix mop (if u plan to baste) and warm over low heat. Transfer lamb to smoker. Cook 35-40 min./lb until internal temp. is 145° for rare-med. rare. Baste meat w/mop every 45-50 min. in wood-burning pit, or as appropriate for your style smoker. Remove lamb and let sit 10 min. Slice and serve warm or chilled. TIP: Leg of lamb is best when lightly smoked... in a water smoker. But other types will yield pleasing results. If using a wood-burning pit, wrap the lamb in foil after the first hour! TIP: Use coarse kosher salt. The mild flavor won't over-power the dish. Place the leg on your rotisserie spit or rod, making sure to secure the forks so the meat turns evenly and doesn’t spin or flop on the rotisserie rod. Place the lamb on the rotisserie over medium heat, and let it roast for approximately 30 minutes per pound or until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F. Approximately 10 minutes prior to removing the leg from the spit, evenly baste the meat with the balsamic vinegar/honey mixture, and continue to baste until meat is done. Remove from spit, tent with foil, and allow to sit for at least 10 – 15 minutes prior to carving.
