Not strictly anything to do with curry (although they make a very acceptable Samosa Pie) but I wanted to give a shout out to the people who make these fantastic pies. I moved to Yorkshire a little over a year ago and was lucky enough to find them online. We’ve since ordered 3 or 4 times (they sell in packs of six) and have tried pretty much every pie they have.

So we immediately hot footed it off to Lily’s to buy some of their excellent samosas to give it a taste test.

Hosted by the talented and charismatic Nadiya Hussain, this show is based on the premise of her personal “art masala” spice mix and demonstrates the…Read the full story

There seems to be a new recipe book published every day at the moment as we all turn ourselves into culinary wizards, or not, depending on your dedication to the kitchen.
Perhaps this is the influence of Bake Off and Master Chef, but either way I have invested in a few of the latest Indian recipe books and will review them over the next few weeks to let you know if, in my opinion, they’re any good or not for the average amateur chef.Read the full story

We all have lazy days when we just cannot be a**ed to cook. Everyone must have them as the convenience food sector continues to grow inexorably towards world domination. You think it’s China that’s going to take over the world? More likely to be the food companies. Anyway back to…Read the full story
