"And there was a cut of some roast... which was borne on Pegasus-wings of garlic beyond mundane speculation."
-C.S. Forester, British author

The refrigerator light goes on...

Resting meat after roasting is the key to juicy, succulent dinners. I love placing citrus fruit over the top while it is resting so the meat absorbs the aromatic flavor.
