PETER SANSOM is another award winning poet who eats, sleeps and breathes poetry. So it really comes as no surprise that he is married to poet Ann Sansom. Let his poem about the perfect roast inspire you.


A rattling good roast

Seal the beef with seasoning.
Lower it in a sizzling pan,
Preheat your oven, gas mark 6
Now here’s the plan:

Pop it in a roasting tin
Baste it and jacket it in foil
Park it in the heat for a couple of hours

Off with the foil
Half an hour to cook it through.
And that’s you. 
Let it stand.  Then you can
Raise a toast
And carve the roast!
