Chicken Breasts with Fennel and Prawn Stuffing (4)

Between 1979 and 1981 between university and travelling I spent a few months on and off waitressing in the newly opened Woods Restaurant in Bath . It quickly became one of Bath’s go to restaurants and local celebrities like Peter Gabriel were regular visitors. Its still going today and still fun by the lovely David and Claude. I must pop in and say hello one day!. While I was working there the chef was a woman called Sharon and this is one of her dishes that always impressed.

Lamb Bunny Chow (4)

A classic South African recipe which is good served with a Tomato and Onion Salad. Any leftover filling will be even more delicious the next day served with rice or salad. It’s from Nokx Majozi and I found it in ” Chefs at Home” . The book was written to support Hospitality Action during Lockdowns in 2020 and 2021, and contains recipes from UK based chefs.

But I will be posting a few more recipes to encourage you all to eat more of these delicious vegetables.
