Anna: I’m feeling very nostalgic, eating a dish named after Tony Blair. I’m sure you are too. Don’t give me that withering look.
Peter: Did Jamie’s next book have a recipe for T-bone steak?
Anna: New Labour, those were the days. I thought this was going to be too much hassle for a mid-week meal, what with having to make the salsa verde and all. But it really wasn’t, and it tasted yum. It was a taste of the past.
Peter: It certainly was.
Anna: Do you remember, I made this at your flat in Balham for someone or other who came to dinner years and years and years ago? So long ago, I can’t even remember who we cooked it for! Was it Miff’s birthday?
Peter: I don’t think we’ll ever remember. We haven’t had bass in a while, I enjoyed this.
Anna: Me too. It was a bit decadent for a weeknight, but I will remember this recipe for when we’re having people to dinner.
Peter: It’s obviously a classic.
Anna: I’ve been so transported back to the early noughties that I’ve drunk far too much wine tonight. All I’m missing are the Marlboro Lights.
