Post-Ashburton.....what happened next

I've been back from cookery training for 10 days now and have tried to cook plenty of things from the course to refresh my memory. So far:
  • Slow cooked pork belly (as above.......check out the crackling)
  • Feathered steak with black pudding topping
  • Potato rosti
  • Egg custard tart
  • Blue cheese and sesame biscuits
  • Apple mash
  • Fat chips
After eating rich restaurant-y food for two weeks I have to admit I had a real craving for other flavours when I got home. I had to eat my favourite Thai curry Khao Soy, get some Indian flavours in with a Tamarind, Peanut and Potato curry and generally eat loads of fruit and veggies to try to de-butter my arteries.
