    I’ve had a few requests for the muhammara recipe we served at the Warwick Wingding. I’ve updated it recently so it’s worth posting again.

    [IMPORTANT EDIT DECEMBER 2011: Caribbean Spice Jerk Centre has now been taken over by new management and I’m sorry to say, is no longer worth visiting. They once served the best jerk in South East London but it’s now dry, lacking in heat, flavour and all around love. I couldn’t be more sad/angry!] I’ve been […]
