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.
You can read more about my forthcoming Burmese night on Foodies South West.
PS - loving the veg (what are they?)
@The Grubworm - Oh don't - they're the professionals, not me!
Guess what they are ;)
@Gourmet Butcher - Thank you!
@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 ;)
In Oz they're called choko - love them fried in lard and ginger...
I'm sure it will be a success. Wish I could be there. x
@The Ample Cook - Thanks Jan x
PS The veg are mutant brussel sprouts
@TheFastestIndian - Thank you lovely Ireena x
