I played follow the leader tonight - each of the three courses we had (BIG dinner tonight, no particular reason, just because..) was linked to the one next to it.
First Caldo Verde, a traditional Portuguese soup of potatoes and cabbage, usually one of the kale family. Cavolo Nero in this case.
Which was the vegetable that went with the slow roast shoulder of pork, boulangere potatoes (recipe for that here ), crackling and apple sauce.
And the apples that weren't made into sauce were baked with demerara sugar to make Black Top apples.
