Hi everybody, happy New Year! Great to be cooking again😊.
Tonight I’ve cooked an ‘International’ meal.
There is a Caribbean curry of beef, the Caribbean powder is from Cardiff market. All the chillis used are from my garden. The accompaniments are South Indian Cabbage Stir Fry, the bread is methi rotis from Tilehurst near Reading and the wine is from Faugeres in France.
A lovely combination

@stripeybag maybe time for a new destination, highly recommend the Vendée, lots to do and to see and full of history. One place we would highly recommend is The Puy du Fou, it makes for a long day but well worth a visit. Its got the waow factor.

Sounds very nice @dcmorris . We have traveled to Faugeres in Herault for the last 9 years but it looks as if the house is sold 😭.

@stripeybag we have had many holidays in France and have now made it our home. We are in the Vendée on the coast.

Happy New Year @stripeybag! We missed your posts! Triskell (spelled this way in Brittany) is a Celtic sign symbolising earth, air and water. Very nice potery!
Lovely meal!! Looks delicious!!

Ah the great and wonderful Exotic Superstore!! I miss it Soooo so much! I think of that as Reading. Yes, settling in brilliantly up here. Sea/ beach walks with the two border collies racing along the surf every day! 🐕🐕

Thank you @Hari Ghotra, @latif, @traceyross and @Arthur vdH, it’s good to get back cooking again. I have done the usual post Christmas turkey curry, but then so do we all 🤣😂🍴
