my excuse is that i grew up in the valleys of south wales.we always had things years behind the rest of the world.........never tasted indian, chinese or kebabs until i left home for brighton in 1985

it wasn't that bad Seren - I had my 1st Indian in Newport in 1970 when I was 17 and the last time I looked the place was still there.  also had a Chinese place in Cwmbran about the same time.  

wasabi peas - love 'em but they can vary according to brand.  Asda also do a chilli dried peas an peanuts mix which is tasty.

sambal oelek, harissa, tabasco - just another way of providing the capsaicin hit of chillis

liking the sund of that Phil........all 5 of us like chilli so a chilli flavoured condiment would go down well i'm sure.......

realised on the weekend that our meals have got a bit set in their ways over 2 or 3 weeks.so looking forward to trying new things on the family especially as the risotto went down so well yesterday

seren nos got to leave the Brie out of the fridge till it gets a bit runny, and starts to bulge at the sides.

Camembert you got to try that! Its like Brie but stronger. Had it the first time when I was very little as i brought it back from a school trip to France with my long French bread and made the whole family have some. Ohhh it was rank but I was deterimined to like it.

If your good at making soup you can make this I had this on my French trip for the first time and it was the best thing I had every tasted. I almost cried. I was little though barely 11 years old

Ohh and this . Yes that is it name! Its not really a family dish more for the grown ups as kids dont always like the anchovies and olives. Bottle of red wine and send the kids to your mothers!

I use to cook this for a Spanish woman I was seeing once. 15 years later she still remembered;)

Roquito peppers are really nice and getting popular now - sweet but hot and great on pizzas

Pad thai is a really easy thai dish to make and uses Tamarind which is delicious (Noodles with peanuts, chilli, onions, prawns, beansprouts, fish sauce, tamarind, soy sauce, beancurd if veggie, garlic and egg)

and a new find for me is that japanese breaded chicken katsu curry is very easy to make yourself and easy to make healthy as the sauce is just cooked onions and garlic then blended with water and a selection of spices and boiled to thicken!

Well it's as healthy as fried chicken can be
