The hardest challenge is to cook it perfect with all the trimmings

TORREMOLINOS, SPAIN: It may not come as a surprise, but Sunday Roast is very close to the heart of Britain’s, even if they are on holiday. Those living partly along Costa del Sol, south of Spain, has a special reason. Here Sunday Roast is the great meal, the ultimate lunch with all the trimmings. It represents family and friends like no other meal during a week. Served way back around the late 14th century at the time of King Henry VII. His Royal Guard would dine roasted beef every Sunday after church, which led them to be known as “Beefeaters”.

As much as you like: Sunday Roast the Carvery in Torremolinos

Along this foodie coast, plenty of British restaurants and cafés are serving such meal. However, to find a good one is a far bigger challenge, to find a real good one is almost impossible. Luckily, I managed to come across the classic British roast in the coastal town of Torremolinos.

The perfect Roast

Preparing and cook optimal Sunday Roast can be one of the hardest challenges. At restaurant The Carvery I found the perfect roast beef, perfect roast lamb, turkey, gammon and pork with all the trimmings. A choice of vegetables, Yorkshire puddings and perfect roast potato, golden and crispy with fluffy insides. Not to forget the wonderful gravy. Along the meat and all the trimmings, the host didn´t forget to include details such as horseradish. This sauce has been paired with beef in England for over 400 years.

“Everything is homemade, no industrial ingredients”, Marc Cornwell says, the British owner of The Carvery. After years with growing reputation and high expectation from guests.

Unlike fancy restaurant-style dishes, there is nowhere to hide, no slick techniques to cover up slip ups in the kitchen.
“I live here six months during the winter and did it for many years. Every Sunday I come here to enjoy my roast. It´s always perfect, the best one served at this coast”, Kai from England said.

The Carvery in Torremolinos – where meat is the main star

The Sunday staff at The Carvery

Never queue. At The Carvery they`ve placed two big white cows high on the building. Inside the restaurant is light and airy with air conditioning and surprisingly never queue in from of the working chefs, not even on a busy Sunday. Here the meat is the star and has been attracting locals and tourists alike since they opened in 2001. What a wonderful tradition having roast every evening – but the perfect Sunday Roast only on a Sunday.

First time guests at The Carvery in Torremolinos – out for Sunday Roast. And they are not British.

Conclusion: The Carvery in Torremolinos is perfect for families, and a Sunday to remember. As long as you don´t are a Vegan.

Work Out: After a heavy lunch, we all need to work out. I did it with help from Susanna, probably the fittest woman of her age on sunny Costa del Sol.
