It seems like the past few weeks have been jam packed with all things Caribbean. I cooked for our ‘Windrush 66’ event last week, Curried Goat, Stew Chicken, Curried Chicken, Rice n Peas…not to mention the cakes. The event was a HUGE success, with all generations, colours and nationalities coming together to celebrate the arrival of ‘The Empire Windrush’, 66 years ago.
On Sunday it was Preston’s 40th Caribbean Carnival, and if I say so myself, it was the best yet. I was able to unleash my alter ego and don outrageous make-up, an Egyptian/mythical creature like costume, and sparkly false eyelashes. What joy! However my legs are yet to recover from dancing the streets over several miles.
Back to food, (my favourite subject). This week’s recipe swap for the Guardian Witness was ‘Mint’. I’m not a huge lover of this particular herb but there are a couple of dishes that mint really adds to. I’ve submitted the recipes so click on the link and have a look.
Enjoy the sunshine! x
