I am venturing back to London after visiting Andrews bountiful homeland of Scotland over the long bank holiday, here is an insight into mine...
|Watermelons in abundance, so to with Indian mangoes and just picked banana bunches. |
The plated rolls were home delivered caramel banana spring rolls.
Market place selcetion of dried noodles, mini packs of oils, dressing and spices.
The Philippines is a cluster of a thousand islands off the Pacific Ocean and its my homeland and retreat every two years. My family originate from a small town eight hours drive from the capital on the main island of Luzon. When I am there there is little else but sunshine, family and fresh air weaving through the coconut trees. A delightful change for a few weeks to London living.
On my trip last year I took a more vested interest in the stunningly fresh produce which was offered up left, right and centre. I made a lot of fresh salads with asian greens kang kong and petchay, grilled river fish like Indian mackerel wrapped in banana leaves with chilli and kalamansi dipping sauce.
