The Way of Wagamama

Chicken Katsu Curry


It’s taken me about 15 minutes to get going on this post.. every time I get my hands into ‘type mode’, I stop, stare at the screen and get mesmerised by the soft fluffy rice ‘ball’.. I imagine the taste of the crunchy, salty panko breadcrumbs.. and oops.. I’ve done it again..

Food for thought

The average brit has a repertoire of 7-10 dishes under their belt, that take on a cyclical nature. I’ve always known this, but reading  a family members article about her relationship with food, reminded me of how people (myself included) can get stuck in a food rut! Lauren (Andrew’s 2nd cousin) is a legend. Travelling the world solo, she has been a real inspiration to the family, taking on new experiences and challenges that most of us only dream of, and in particular conquering her many food phobias!!

Our large roof terrace overlooking a well kept garden, was to be the source of discussions and ideas instigated and executed by my friend Fionnuala (Fen).  Fen has impeccable taste. Her home and garden are beautifully decorated, each room enchanting as it is different, an uncluttered host to objects of her extensive travels. It’s impossible to not get garden envy sitting in her sunken decked area, over looking the urban savannah she and her other half have created from scratch..  drinking lemonade (fresh from her lemon tree!) or eating a home cooked meal flavoured with her homegrown herbs..

Choccy woccy, brew: Ta!

I have spent the last few days in Sneeze-ville. Festering in my own germs, unable to shake off a cold for over three weeks!! I carried on working whilst feeling rough – but this only made it worse! Cooped up in doors, missing castings, and other things; mother and mother-in-laws invitations to go for walks and for lunch were declined until Andrew called me with some VERY important news…
