If you’re in the Mallow vicinity tomorrow, Saturday 23 August, call in to URRU as Arun Kapil of Green Saffron will be in store between 11am and 3pm, talking about his range of fresh, intensely flavoured spice blends and Indian ingredients, offering plenty of tips and tricks for making the most of them.
After we especially enjoyed the Lamb Rogan Josh at his Ballyvolane banquet, I very kindly (not at all thinking of myself!) gave the Husband the Rogan Josh blend as one of his birthday presents. The sachet scented the rest of the presents and wafted spice around the kitchen until he eventually gave in and cooked it for the night the International Aid Worker came to visit. It was fabulous and there might even be a repeat performance next weekend when a couple of the English Engineers come to visit. The Garam Masala, rose petals and all, is also fantastic and comes with a recipe for Arun’s very morish Garam Masala Cookies that was tried out to great effect this week by my German Colleague.
Don’t forget – while Arun is talking about spices in store, we also have the Mallow Farmers’ Market taking place in the courtyard outside URRU from 10.30am to 1pm.
