Two flavours discovered recently
Sumac - A burgundy coloured spice made from ground, dried berries. It has an appealing lemon-lime tartness that can be widely used. In Iran. Use as a condiment, or sprinkle over dishes before serving in place of lemon.
Feunugreek - (Methi) seed, when ground, has a rich spicy note that imparts a sweet, slightly nutty, maple-syrup-like flavor reminiscent of burnt sugar and just a hint of aromatic curry spices. Buy ready ground and use sparingly in in soups, curries, casseroles and other dishes.

Cookery Compendium ... Compendium Appendix

This was the first book I produced, many years ago, a motley collection of techniques etc. The document was originally produced in a program that I not longer use, and is currently being re-shaped into the format of the second book, below, and being brought up to date.

Carefree Cooking

This is a collection of recipes, built up over the years, virtually every recipe I thought I might repeat. A few are my own, but most have been appropriated and modified.
