Is there anything more comforting and delicious than a carvery dinner?

The answer? No. 

You start by eating your weight in meat, potatoes, gravy and various other accoutrements and then you slowly proceed to slip into a blissful food coma. 

Most people think carveries are reserved for Sundays, when, in fact, you can devour a carvery any day of the week.
