My friend Rachel lovingly made this recipe for me a couple of years back and in my mind it has firmly etched itself as one of my most memorable dinners.
Like most, Rachel arms herself with a recipe after having invited friends over for a casual dinner. She follows the recipe carefully, like a grasshopper, reading and creating with caution. It’s only after the first mouthful, when her guests break out in smiles and mmmmm’s that she relaxes and considers whether it will be added to her repertoire. Cooking can become a robotic mundane task and it is cooks like Rachel who make it exciting and pure.
I really encourage you to make this recipe; having just cooked it recently, I loved it just as much as when Rachel cooked it for me 2 years ago.
