Hello. Is this thing on? Hi, mum

How exciting, my first blog post. For this post, I decided to do a foodie topic and post an original recipe, as it is totally less nerve-wracking than writing about myself, although that will come in time.

The inspiration for this post comes from a cookery demonstration by Rozanne Stevens that I enjoyed last month. Roz cooked an unusual dish called Flying Jacob and I wanted to do something along the same lines.

So, here is my…

That’s it! Simple stuff, right?

Now, take a deep breath, savour the delicious aromas and imagine you are in an exotic place having your taste buds teased by the local cuisine.

Cooking should always be this relaxing and enjoyable, especially when you factor in the little amount of washing up.

So, with all the free time you have on your hands, now that they aren’t doing the dishes, why not whip up a quick, cooling, cucumber and mint raita to serve with your Mango Chicken Curry Recipe?



All you have to do is mix the three ingredients together and then chill in the fridge until ready to serve.

      You don’t have to debone the thighs and it really isn’t spicy at all as the coconut milk / cooking cream, mango and tomatoes balance any spice out. If anything, I would add more spice!
