    Cook's tips

    Drizzle 1 tbsp of balsamic vinegar in at the end of cooking to add extra rich flavour. Try adding
    in a 250g pack chestnut mushrooms, halved, for
    the last half hour.

    Drinks recommendation

    Reward your patience with a slowly savoured glass
    of red – perhaps from the bottle that’s already
    opened for cooking?
