Never buy curry powder again. Homemade curry powder is easy, cheap and guaranteed fresh every time. And you can customize it if you want to. More chili? Sure. A bit of cardamom? Why not. Hint of cinnamon? It’s up to you.
Move over sriracha mayo. So long chipotle mayo. Here comes gochujang mayonnaise. Time to put a little Korean flair into your sandwiches. It’s the next big thing. Serve it with roasted pork. Bacon.

This roasted cauliflower gratin is a mediterranean take on a gratin. It’s not completely drowned in cheese. Not swimming in a béchamel. It’s cleaner. About the taste of cauliflower. Briny olives. Some salty melted cheese goodness. A hint of heat. Sweetness from the shallots.
