Even just the word Scotch Egg evokes such strong childhood memories for me and these baked scotch egg are the number 1 item in an picnic as far as I am concerned.
Looking back at last winter I think I am definitely ready to say that Persian and North African flavours have been my 'new black' for the period and this za'atar chicken leg dish with cous cous is yet another riff on that idea.
These Sweet and Sour Pork Balls are just about close enough to be recognisable to the ones I would order (or have ordered for me) from the Chinese Takeaway when I was growing up but they are far enough removed to definitely be a reflection on my tastebuds now.
Let's just go with the idea that this deep fried goats cheese is healthy, I mean we have peas, onions, radish, edible flowers and how can anything this pretty be of any harm to anyone? In fact I reckon I am only days away from a book deal promoting my very own 'clean eating' plan.
