I honestly don’t know what led me to think making such an elaborate meal on a week night was a good idea.

I have to say i almost dropped the camera a few times whilst cooking, a heart palpitation driving thought (seeing as i can barely afford to pay the match for the camera i’ve already got-Canon EOS 450D )

Anyway meditteranean was the theme, & excellence was the dream…which surprisingly came true.


There’s not a single bite that i didn’t enjoy. It was like being in Morocco with the heat & sweetness of the air (a heartwarming thought being on this side of the UK. Southampton = The wind carries you to uni..a bit dramatic..but still..)

I had some help from the boys which was nice, Felipe saved my radishes from burning (thanks felipe!)

<<This was the first time i had ever cooked with radishes, i was curious about the vegetable as my local always had them on offer, but i had no idea what to do with them…when in doubt fry..right?

My cat kept me company whilst i was frying the couscous, the best kind of distraction (the reason why i don’t have any pics of the couscous frying process, sorry! I try to give a consistent photographic timeline for the gallery)

Anyway here he is being all pretty & stuff.

Oh and don’t make this meal on a weeknight! Enjoy it on the weekend, you want to take your time with this & savour all your effort  x
