The Wild Garlic this Friday - Burmese Night


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.

Mr Follas and me

You can read more about my forthcoming Burmese night on Foodies South West.


Congrats and good luck Mimi - that's so exciting.

Good luck - this is very exciting! I expect you to have the whole crew shouting "Chef, yes chef!" at every command ;)

PS - loving the veg (what are they?)

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.
OOh good luck.They look a bit like vegetable pears but those ones look really perfect almost like a green version of a Salvatore Dali lip sofa!

@chumbles - Thanks Mr C!

@knit nurse - Got it in one (or three!)

@Northern Snippet - That's another name for them. Someone said they look like Audrey II from Little Shop of Horrors ;)

Have fun while you work hard Mimi. Am sure you'll be brilliant.

In Oz they're called choko - love them fried in lard and ginger...
