Bursting the burka at the seams – Feasting at Ramadan

We visited Brunei in the heist of Ramadan, a religious festival which to me makes no sense. Muslims set the alarm for the crack of dawn to which they awake scoff their faces with food and drink before sunrise, then go hungry/thirsty all day in the blistering heat until 6/7pm when they then gorge like … Continue reading »

Me and me Mum and me Dad and me Gran and a bucket of Vindaloo

Having eaten at far too many Indian restaurants, and cooked hundreds of curries, I thought I was pretty much an expert when it came to Indian cuisine, so it was a big shock when I sat down to enjoy my first curry and didn’t understand 90% of the menu.

Once, twice, three times a curry

Often referred to as a watered down India, Sri Lanka has more variations of food than Jimmy Saville has (insert sick joke here).
