Adam Jackson and his amazing Chocolate Brownies

With thanks to Adam Jackson who is executive head chef at the Feversham Arms in Helmsley . As it is the weekend .. it is time for a little treat and the only advantage of self isolating by yourself is you can eat them all. But isnt it nice to share so please save this recipe for when we can all be out and about again. I am happy to visit you when this is all over if you make some of these. 

Please still heed #StayInStaySafe as hard as it is.  To put it bluntly it is only ignorant ,selfish people who flaunt the rules.
