too hot to stand in front of the cooker tonight*. So:
finely chop a shallot, some fresh coriander and a red chili. Combine this with 1lb of Dexter mince, together with some sel gris. Shape into vaguely hamburger-shaped shapes
in a bowl, combine a can of chick peas, some chopped fresh mint, diced cucumber, finely chopped spring onions, some cold cooked potatoes from the fridge, and grated carrot. Make a dressing with walnut oil, white wine vinegar and a splash of shoyu and toss it about a bit
get Pete to stand in front of a very hot ribbed cast iron pan and cook the burgers
sprinkle the salad with sesame, pumpkin and sunflower seeds, which have been dry fried, then tossed in a little tamari
eat in front of When Harry Met Sally which - astonishingly - Pete had never seen.
a perfect way to spend a hot summer evening.
