Chamomile tea is another recommendation but some of us would never let it pass our lips sober, let alone half-stewed
. A 16th Century hangover cure involved a mixture of raw eels and almonds mixed to a paste, while in Australia it's customary to follow a particularly heavy session with a couple of steak pies covered in tomato sauce and chased by ice-cold Coca-Cola.
THERE are so many things I love about this dish: it's all cooked in one tray; we're using more robust herbs like thyme, rosemary and bay with the tomatoes, which work really well; the half-roasted, half-stewed
fresh tomatoes turn into a lovely rich and chunky sauce which is miles better than anything you get using tinned tomatoes; and we're roasting the sausages, which I think is far better than frying or grilling them.
