Plenty o’mangoes: Round 7

This will be the last in my gloating mango posts. Mostly because we’ve now eaten all the mangoes. A few were devoted to slurping up: raw, silky and sweet. One was dedicated to a smoothie (which didn’t seem to deserve a blog post, but I will just say: exquisite) and a couple of others were […]

Plenty o’mangoes: Round 6

One thing you learn swiftly when you’re dallying with food blogging: a lot of food is far less photogenic than it is delicious. I say this by way of warning, because the photo of tonight’s mango triumph really doesn’t do it justice. Inspired by (but very different from) Tomato Blues’s Beach Sundal, this is a […]

Plenty o’mangoes: Round 5

The mangoes keep on coming! Since pizza makes up a significant proportion of our weekly diet (and by ‘significant’, I trust you understand, I imply ‘vast majority’ and then realise the whole sentence is a grammatical train wreck), it was not only natural that mango would make its way onto a pizza, it was eagerly […]

Plenty o’mangoes: Round 2

It turns out there are many different types of mango. I probably would be able to tell two apart if I saw them side-by-side, but overall, if you put, say, fifty different types of mango in a pile, I’d see a pile of mangoes, not individual cultivars. It’s flat out ignorance and there’s no excuse […]

Plenty o’mangoes: Round 1

We agreed the first mango would be ritually decheeked, sliced open and surrendered to our ravenous gullets without ornamentation, but once our initial mango lust was slaked, we agreed to pursue a slightly more sophisticated preparation. M soaked some black beans, while I prepared a batch of fresh feta and left it to drain overnight. […]

As we drove home from a great weekend, the signs on the side of the road began to finally get our attention. God knows how many we passed before we started reading them, but after about four, we had each decided we needed to pull over and buy the promised fruit. Mangoes! Strawberries! Blueberries! (Mysteriously […]
