I hope you all enjoyed my Pasta Sauces recipe book?
I can’t wait to visit Italy again once travel restrictions are lifted. I can remember when I first visited Bologna, Modena, and Parma… three beautiful foodie destinations. The region of Emilia-Romagna is the home of bolognese, balsamic vinegar, parmesan cheese, Parma ham, and one of my favourite drinks, Lambrusco (a fizzy red wine).
Another country that I derive a lot of cooking inspiration from is India. It has a completely different cuisine to that of Italy. Most of the population is vegetarian, and this is reflected in the diverse selection of veggie-packed, spicy dishes you can enjoy throughout the country. I’ve been very lucky to have been shown how to cook dishes by local people in Mumbai, Goa and Kerala, and these experiences have influenced 4Lunch cooking classes ever since!
Indian cuisine is full of flavour and full of life. I also love how mysterious curry sauces can be. When I eat Indian food, I am always trying to discern what spices are in it and how it was put together.
With so many different spices, it can seem intimidating to cook your own curry from scratch, without any pre-made pastes or jars. I’ve been studying a lot of vegetarian curry recipes recently as I’m trying to eat healthier, decrease my meat consumption, and save some money. Through my research, I’ve realised that most recipes share the same basic steps!
So for my next mini recipe book, I’m going to share with you the one master recipe that makes 10 vegetarian curries!
