This Travels in Honey recipe includes two options in one; a curry and a potato-topped pie, and also finds a thread between a British classic and classic Sri Lankan flavours. Honey is the balancing factor here, a touch of unrefined sweetness which highlights the umami and savoury notes by virtue of being different. A delicious Spring recipe... lamb is in season and pairs so well with spices and sweet potato.Read now
Our Travels in Honey continues with Slow cooked Chicken with Mango. A recipe that operates on the same delicious premise say that lamb and apricots do, or sausages and apples, beef and quince. All of these are marriages of sweet and savoury brought together in a truly melting texture that binds the distinct flavours together.
Same for chicken and mango, here, the Ginger and Turmeric Honey not only helps render the juices particularly syrupy (just the kind to mop up with some bread) but draws out the rich amber hues of the dish.
