I love Durian. Whenever I visit my relatives in Malaysia and it’s in season we go for a tasting session. There are so many different varieties (a bit like cheese) which have slightly different flavours.
I usually eat it fresh but have had it in pancakes aswell. Do you ever cook with Durian?
I recently came across a herb called Culantro, very similar to corriander/cilantro but with a more floral and lemony taste and larger leaves. It is used widely across latin america and the caribbean as an alternative to corriander – I made a simple omelette with it and it’s excellent, highly recommended for anyone who hasn’t tried it yet…
When I was visiting Borough Market during a holiday, I came across Samphire and was blown away. It was such an odd vegetation to me. I bought some back even though I had no idea how to cook it and decided I would just stir-fry it with some other greens without using salt cos it was so salty on its own. How do you all usually eat it? Do you cook it or have it raw in a salad?
