    I recently found the attached article in an English magazine and would love to find out what your likes and dislikes are. So, please send me a list of the foods that you hate and would certainly not be demanding as your 'last meal' to Of course, you can use the accompanying list as a guideline, but it's not set in concrete and I think vegies should be included as well.

  • Drying chillies

    Thread the chillies onto a length of strong, white string using a large needle, pushing the needle through the stem of the chillies,  not the flesh. Then hang the string of chillies in a dry, hot room or on the side of a building in the sun.

  • Raw onions

    If you don't like the flavour of raw onions, either soak them in milk for 30 mins before using or put them in a sieve and pour boiling water over the top.
  • Lemongrass

    To prepare lemongrass, remove the rough outer leaves and give the bulb a good whack with the flat side of a meat mallet or large knife to break up the fibres. Then slice it as finely as you can.
