He handed Cassie a glass of red wine and she swirled it around gently in the glass then sniffed at it the way David had done the night before in the restaurant.

“This is good, said Cassie as she took off her shoes and walked barefoot towards him and kissed him.

“You certainly know your way around a kitchen David.’

I went on a couple of cooking holidays to Italy and France when I was a starving student as they say. I learned from Keith Floyd actually, not only about food but what wine goes best with each meal. It was a fabulous experience as well as an education. I mean the man was a total eccentric but he knew how to cook. He was drunk half the time you know.’ He took us around the wine growing regions of the Dordogne, then onto Tuscany and Umbria. They worship him there. He would just set up a kitchen in the street and start cooking food; it was amazing to watch him in action.’

“I wish I could cook like that, you know restaurant quality.’

David strained the potatoes and French beans. He took out the steaks, using the juices he made a gravy. He arranged everything on the plates as if he was creating a picture and it looked delicious.

He poured a little of gravy that he’d made around the plate then took them into the dining room.

Cassie brought the wine and they sat down together and ate off the walnut dinner table.

David allowed Cassie to taste her steak first and she was amazed at how tender it was.

“I think I would marry you just for your cooking skills alone David.’

“I hope that you don’t expect this quality when you come and eat at my house mind.’

“I will teach you it’s very simple to produce this type of food as long as you are organised to begin with.’

“You were so fast though.’ And when it was done it looked like a masterpiece.’

“The thing to remember Cassie, is that people eat with their eyes, what I mean by that is; that if something looks appetising it is sure to taste good too.’ “More wine.’

“David poured more wine into her glass.

“Do you cook most nights when you come in from work?’

“I can knock up a salad in no time at all.’

Sometimes when an operation has taken several hours to perform. I come home and just want my bed. I deal with some horrific road traffic accidents Cassie.’ You don’t feel very much like eating after inserting plates and screws in someone.

“I see what you mean.’ “Are you working tomorrow?’

“for my sins, yes.’ Will you call me if Sandy goes out?’

“Yes of course.’

“If you cannot reach me and I’m in surgery just leave a message and I will get back to you.’

“The thing is David if Sandy answers the call what are you going to say.’
