I made my first pizza when I was 11 years old or maybe sooner. It was from the Ladybird children’s recipe book series. It took me hours to make the dough alone. I would cautiously warm the water, add the sugar and slowly pour in the yeast granules, watching the little globules scatter delicately into the water below.

Again… it has been a tad bit too long since I wrote to you last. As I mentioned in my previous post I was working on “Project Ghee”, well I don’t think I called it that exactly … but it sure does sound good right now 🙂

However, I would suggest eating the curry atop a pile of rice with a pickled condiment of choice…
One bite into these delectable burgers and you’ll know you’ve made the winning touchdown!
