The bolognese recipe I put together was based on tips from chefs and cookbooks, I didn’t actually ask the person who had served me perfect bolognese for years – our friends’ grandmother, […]

       I realise this is a very meaty start to a post on a blog that I share with a non-meat eater. But, this is seriously delicious. I was having a discussion recently with my friend C, who commented that she would like to see more savoury dishes on the blog. Obviously, I’m not surprised […]

Continuing on from my previous post (tofu fritters), the next dish we made was a chicken curry (kare ayam). We started by chopping all the spices: These were blended in our large processor, then in the mini processor.

Persepolitan roast chicken

A while back, keen to try a new cuisine, I bought the cookbook “Persia in Peckham: recipes from Persepolis” by Sally Butcher, from my all time favourite bookshop books for cooks.
