‘Twas not meant to be
An ode to a squaddie bar
And so it isn’t.
Name: Canaletto Montepulciano d’Abruzzo
Type: red wine
Recipe: Brisket 1: Salt, pepper, and brown a piece of brisket.
Brisket 2: Put some onion in the bottom of the pan to flavour it and act as a rack.
Brisket 3: Put the meat on the onions, coat with English mustard, put some water in the pan (don’t cover the onions, though), put a couple of branches of rosemary on top, cover the brisket with oil-soaked cheesecloth, cover the pan tightly with foil and a lid and bake for 4 or 5 hours at 150°C.
Review/notes: On the run in Durrington and around the Bulford Camp I tried hard to find a pub on or near the base that would be open to the public but serve primarily the enlistees, to no avail. Of the two new pubs, I couldn’t find a draft beverage that hasn’t featured in the Daily Tipple so far either…best laid plans, etc.
