  1. Did you know that the English call the French ‘frogs’ and that their historic retalliation is to call the English ‘Les rosbifs’ or ‘the roast beefs’ …. nothing but nothing pleases an English person more than a good Sunday roast!

  2. Since I moved in USA I have struggled to find the right cut of beef for roast-beef. “Beef roast” is quite generic and I was wondering if you could be more precise regarding the cut of meat to buy for the recipe… thanks!
