I'm so lucky. When I'm up at the office I get to stay with Kamala and her lovely husband - but don't tell him I said that. Originally from India Kam cooks the most amazing curries. I love staying there and I so enjoy watching her cook. I think my favourite so far is masala dosai (I hope I've spelt it right) - potato curry in rice flour pancakes, although her samosas are something very special too.
But what amuses me is her spice cupboard. This is a wall cupbaord filled to the brim with spices. To give you some idea of scale these jars are the medium and large size coffee jars!
