I have missed travelling so much in the last couple of years. I actually sorted a new passport for myself after my last trip in January 2019 and hello, have gone absolutely nowhere since. It is still in pristine condition! AARGHH!
I think what I miss more than flights and the hustle and bustle of sightseeing are the foodie adventures. I love to try new things and to find out of the way dining experiences where ever I go. I often participate in a cooking class or a food tour of some sort when on holiday. I also love staying in amazing locations and just being in awe of how interesting the whole world is.
But I digress...this delicious thing came from a need to eat something reminiscent of trips past and I think we nailed it. It is only as spicy as the chilli jam quantity you dare to use. (The Chilli Jam recipe BTW, was created for The Weekend Table book and here we are sharing it with Insiders as you absolutely MUST have it for this recipe!)
So imagine you are somewhere else when you eat this. Channel your inner tuk tuk and think about the first place you will go and visit once we can again!
