More food know-how:
Sunday roast for friends and family doesn't have to be a complicated meal. There are some versions where you do a little preparation and then leave the whole thing in the oven to slowly cook without any need to slave away in the kitchen. In some cases, the juices turn into a tasty gravy as if by magic.
If roast isn't roast without a bird, why not try the honey roasted chicken with carrots in the video above? This recipe would feed at last six. You could add Yorkshire puddings, roast potatoes and a salad to make it go further if needed. The roasting temperature (400F) is about 200C.
Lamb responds really well to slow cooking - partly because it often has plenty of fat (particularly shoulder) so leave yourself time to skim it off before serving. Both Tom Kerridge's slow-cooked lamb recipe and this slow-cooked lamb shoulder with vegetables are ideal if you want a dish that can be left in the oven while you go for a walk or to the pub.
Gordon Ramsay's roasted pork belly makes the most of a relatively inexpensive cut. This is also a good option if you want a meal that you can leave in the oven while you get on with something else.
