Another year, another Frogmarch. Every May we head away for a long weekend with friends. This year we’ve rented a house called Baysdale Abbey, which is a little way inland from Whitby. We will have thirteen adults and assorted children. We’ll be driving down tomorrow, to arrive in time for tea.

As usual, Andrew and I have planned the catering. We should have fun cooking. A few years ago we had our Frogmarch at a house in Norfolk that had an Aga; that introduced a pleasant element of experimentation in the kitchen, but I think we’ll be on a regular cooker this time.

Many of the recipes are from my favourite cookbook; Marguerite Patten’s Classic Dishes Made Simple (1969). I have my grandfather’s copy; when we moved out of the flat in 1998, Andrew had a long search to find his own copy.
