I have two distinct memories from my last trip to New York, just before 2020 arrived in all its might. One memory is of discovering the most delicious (and cheap) scallion pancakes at Vanessa’s Dumplings on a walking food tour…

Autumn has arrived in Cape Town and the weather is in that perfect not too hot and not too chilly phase, meaning you could definitely cook these Masala Prawns on the barbecue this coming weekend. It is another great recipe…
