CRAB DIP

If you like crab, you will absolutely love this starter. Hot, rich and creamy we were practically elbowing each other out of the way to get seconds! We ate ours with crostini, but slices of crusty baguette, griddled sourdough or – my new favourite – seeded flatbread, would all be equally scrummy. Thanks to Julia for her recipe.
