Waitrose Kitchen – Tandoori Chicken

I’m super chuffed to report that I’m in this month’s Waitrose Kitchen. They’ve run a rather splendid piece about food and nostalgia, which includes the story behind my not-so-secret family recipe for tandoori chicken. It’s also on the waitrose website here and the recipe’s here. My gran would be so proud…

    Love this! Now living in the birthplace of my grandmother (Greece), “food and nostalgia” is a big topic for me. Sometimes I taste a tomato sauce–or whatever–and it IS my grandmother’s. I am transported … On another subject (departing a moment from Greek food ;-), I’ve been wanting to try tandoori chicken forever and this summer I WILL, using YOUR recipe. Thank you!

    Brilliant, well done, and a lovely pic too.
    Today Waitrose; tomorrow the world! 😉

  11. Wow that’s really brilliant, will defo have to try out your recipe.

    I love the nostalgia of family food. My Granny was an instinctive cook who made simple but such tasty stuff. I’ve inherited her blue spode crockery and just eating off it brings the memories flooding back!

    Waitrose Kitchen is such a stylish mag – LOVE that cake on the front!!!!!
