It’s just about dinner time. I’ve been attempting (for the first time) to cook a beef stew, a meal designed and built around the half-a-bottle of red wine I had left over from Friday. It’s been slowly cooking for about six hours or so, and I’m getting very hungry.
Here’s what my (ancient) stove looks like:
Update 9:30pm. Oh man, that was de-smeggin’-licious. The mushrooms in particular… superb. Perhaps not quite enough meat, and too much carrot in it. But a great cold winter’s night meal.
Hope the leftovers are as good when re-heated. Given how easy it was to cook, I can scarcely believe I’ve never done it before.

Leftovers will be even better. As kewl as your stove is, I guess you will need to move on at some point. You need a wok burner at least.
Yeah a replacement stove is on the agenda… eventually. I’d envisage the whole kitchen getting a makeover at some stage.
Nothing beats an awesome stew. I love your stove, though! Probably works better than my PoS.
A little tip for slow-cooked beef casseroles – add a strip of orange peel. Makes an amazing difference.
Casseroles are always better the next day – same rule applies to spag. bol. sauce too.
Slow cooking is the way to go – if you have the time.
I’ll buy your cute stove!
