I love a Thai green curry, and its much better to make the sauce yourself than to buy one in a jar.
This is my wife’s favorite curry, and is certainly up there as one of mine too.
Based loosely on a Viking crisp bread recipe that was sent to me. These are really quick and easy to make and taste great.
I love the taste of mackerel. Its strong flavour can really stand up to the mix of spices added to this dish. This same paste can be used with other curry dishes too. Why not try chicken, lamb, or even vegetable curry. Serves 2 Ingredients: For the paste 1 tsp fennel seeds 1 tsp cumin…

A tasty summer crumble made with fresh gooseberries from the garden.
Quick and easy to make, and super tasty. The flavour of the lamb can really stand up for itself against the spices in this dish.
Packed full of seeds and banana, these must be healthy, right?
These make a great healthy snack. They are rather more-ish though, so don’t last very long!

For those looking for a non-alcoholic drink in the springtime, this one takes some beating.
Elderflowers announce the coming of summer. They complement the tartness of the gooseberry, which happens to ripen at just the same time.
