  1. Thanks so much for your recview of the lovely new edition by Quadrille of my 1980’s bestseller Marvellous Meals with Mince. I’m so glad you chose the meatloaf with blue cheese recipe – its one I love too. Best wishes, Josceline

    You’re absolutely right about that recipe, Josceline. It’s is the one to win over any meatloaf haters; I’ve made it several times since and turned both my brewers into devotees. Now to try out the rest of the dishes!

  3. Many years ago I had a recipe of yours which cooked the mince in milk, it was called something like, superior mince. We loved the taste and tenderness. The recipe has disappeared and I would love to cook it for my grandchildren.

    Carolyn, I’ve gone through Josceline’s book several times and there doesn’t seem to be any recipes for Superior Mince or mince cooked in milk – unless you were talking about coconut milk? What kind of meat did it use? There are lots of other fantastic recipes in the book too. The meatballs in a goat’s cheese sauce is a winner with my two girls and they also loved the Piglet Pie and even the spinach and beef layer pie.
