Crayfish With Caviar And Potatoes

I am so inspired by Gordon Ramsay – he really appeals to me. At first, I could not watch one of his shows – the bleeping turned me off. But, now, with the swearing being left in, I watch every program and I am hooked. DONE! my new favourite ending to any meal. This recipe for crayfish with caviar was inspired by The f Word
