Anthony Sargeant cooked a small joint of beautifully marbled beef earlier in the week. Quickly sealed in a hot pan then into a fan oven at 60 degrees Celsius for an hour and a half.

Anthony Sargeant drove down to Bracklesham Bay on the English South Coast in 1963 together with Barbara Attridge to visit his friends, Steve Lee (seen here with Barbara Attridge), Mark Baxter, and Bob Tweddle, who were working in the summer vacation at Bracklesham Bay Hotel.
