    To paraphrase a well-known and favourite Friend “What’s not to like – chocolate gooooood, orange gooooood, cake gooooood”! You’ve got to love Joey’s thinking when it comes to food.

    For the last few months with the warmer weather approaching, I’ve had summer recipes on the brain. One of the recurring themes is how to convert meals I love into something I can still enjoy when it’s hot. The first thing that occurred was curry – although we don’t like…
