One of my 'go-to' recipes is this one from Booths - a one pot pork shoulder. My brother-in-law Tim cooked it for me when I went round to his and my sister's house for supper and it’s the perfect dish for a group in winter. I’ve done it since for friends, and Georgina took the recipe and now cooks it with her family when she goes home to the north. I think that means it’s a winner.
I was reminded of it as Tim said at the Christmas meal table that Booths is up for sale. My Leeds-based aunt was gutted to hear this, so hopefully someone good will take it on or there will be cries of sadness echoing across the North of England. (It seems Yorkshire folk put down any east/west divide when it comes to Booths.)
The only thing I change is to cook the broccoli separately so it stays in contrast to the creamy goodness. Tonight I'm doing different greens and have gone off piste a bit due to holiday cottage ingredients, but I'm sure it will still taste dreamy.
I'll pop it in the oven for a couple of hours, serve with crusty bread and use any leftovers for a nice soup.
