David is enjoying a prawn cocktail, roast beef and apple crumble. We are not really talking caviar. My mum would have done a prawn cocktail in the 80s, and we enjoy roast beef as often as bloody possible – even austerity Britain is probably having still having reasonably frequent bash at apple crumble…
