Back in June, I told you all that the lovely Mat Follas (MasterChef winner 2009) was allowing me to take over his restaurant in Dorset.

That time is finally approaching - this Friday, with the help of Mat and his brilliant crew, I will be cooking a Burmese feast for 40 diners at
the Wild Garlic.

The menu is a secret, but one of the ingredients I will be using is pictured above.

  5. Cristophene/chayote/chocho. I'll be interested to find out what you do with them as they are easy to get here but my past efforts have been very bland and uninspiring.
