As soon as I hear the crackle of the curry leaves in the pan, this recipe takes me straight back to the sunny beaches of Kerala. It celebrates all of the incredible fresh ingredients on offer on the Indian coast - fresh fish, coconut, curry leaves and ginger...

Korean Jumbo Chicken Wings

Korean fried chicken is all the rage and has become one of my favourite street food snacks. Hot, juicy, tender chicken, with a crunchy American-style batter, and a rich sauce that's spiked with chilli, soy and garlic and sticks to everything it gets in contact with (making it the worst first date food in history)...

My black pudding bonbons have become famous. They started off as a humble Glamorgan sausage (a Welsh vegetarian croquette made of leeks and cheese). Then I introduced my old friend, the mighty black pudding and experimented a lot before I perfected the recipe.

Beef, Lemongrass and Sichuan Pepper

The key flavours to this dish are lemongrass and Sichuan pepper. In Mauritius we call lemongrass 'citronelle' and we use it a lot in desserts, cocktails and in sauces and in Asian cuisine it is integral to any paste - like Thai green and red curry paste for example.

Considering how good these taste and how pretty they look they really are flippin' easy. You can use whatever dried fruit and nuts you've got lying around: sultanas, hazelnuts, apricots and pecans all work brilliantly.

This Week I Ate... Rabbit and John Doe

The first is Rabbit and the second is John Doe. Sod Michelin, with its mincing implore that a place is 'worth a detour'. These restaurants are a worth car crash. I'd pinch Chris Eubank's stupid big truck and drive it through several houses if that was the most direct route to Rabbit or John Doe.

It's national curry week and I thought I'd make my own unique curry that I could share with you. It was 2 years ago that I won MasterChef with my Mauritian Mutton Curry and who would've thought that something that was a family classic would win a culinary TV show like MasterChef.

Traditionally in Mauritius we make this with corned mutton which has a much stronger flavour and Iove it but I love corned beef as well and in the UK this is readily available and easier to get hold of. To be honest with you I love most tinned things, sardines, mackerel, anchovies and I suppose it's mostly out of nostalgia
