We had some guests staying on Sunday night who wanted to entertain some friends. We were asked to cook for them and a pleasure it was too. The guests were all vegetarians and vegans and so we did an Indian meal with eight different dishes for the main course our own almonds and olives with drinks and Simon made Vegan Mango and Banana ice cream.
I used Madhur Jaffreys Indian Cookery book with a few of my own alterations some for Vegan diners and some old favourites.
The work room was transformed into a beautiful dining space and looked spectacular.
