We returned from France and needless to say the fridge was empty apart from staples.  Little jars of SE Asian ingredients sit on a shelf in the door ready for days such as this.  I would have liked to add some fresh coriander and veg but I didn’t have them.  I give you this recipe so that …

The clouds were reasonably kind to us, and the sun shone after lunch to its full glory.  At the garden table, six adults and seven children indulged in the omelette made famous by Arnold Bennett who, following a stay at the Savoy Grill where the recipe was perfected for him, insisted on having it cooked everywhere he went.  …
