Basil and pistachio pesto

MissFoodFairy's Basil&pistachio pesto #7

Do you believe that my first semester (7 weeks) of commercial cookery has already finished!? I can’t believe how quick that’s gone! So many amazing simple dishes have been created in that time, which I would bring home to share the fruits of my labour with my husband. He’d come home, eat what I made and say “you can make that any time of the week!” Thank you for such a lovely compliment :)

I’ve learnt so many things in only four weeks but the one thing I’ve learnt is how to sharpen knives properly – my knives have never been sharper! Continue reading

Butter chicken

MissFoodFairy's butter chicken in serving dishes

Butter chicken is the most popular Indian curry – everyone knows about it, most people order it and love eating it. Is it the creamy tomato sauce, the way the chicken melts in your mouth or could it be that butter chicken has all the spice and flavour we love a curry to be, without being overly hot to the palette?
