Pasta and Hot Sauces at the market

I think I have told most of you that I decided to get a market stall earlier this year. I spent years developing the, in my opinion, perfect Hot Sauce. I love the flavor of chilli and the chilli kick but I am not in to pain and when you can’t taste anything else. This … Continue reading

Prawn Curry and a temporary fridge break down

Delicious Malaysian food in Deal

The other day I was asking the fishmonger if there would be any crabs this weekend. He scratched his head and said it would either be an abundance or very few, if any. All this had to do with the full moon and the tides, I feel like I learn something about the sea every … Continue reading

Seville Orange and chilli marmalade

On my calendar there are a few  foodie events per year that are very exciting. The first one each year is the arrival of the Seville oranges. They are on sale for a short time in January and last year I missed them. Seville oranges are bitter oranges, they are too bitter to eat and … Continue reading
