'Winter is on my head, but eternal spring is in my heart' -- Victor Hugo January is behind us! But before we celebrate, the dark months of the year aren't quite over yet. When I get home in the evenings, I still need something warming to shake off the February chill. This week's recipe is all about indulging that urge to hibernate... I always say that great food is good for the soul as well as the body - but after work it can be hard to find time for complex dishes. Guys, truly great food doesn't need to be time-consuming or fiddly. A chow mein makes the perfect mid-week supper: easily tossed together in one pan, substantial enough to be a whole meal in itself, and (it goes without saying!) I liked mine packed full of flavour. Take a quiet moment for yourself in the evening and relax over a bowl of this most simple and comforting of dishes. In the depths of winter we can all feel that bit more sluggish; I love using chilli in my cooking to boost the metabolism and lift the spirits too. So what better for beating those winter blues than my spicy Chilli Chicken Chow Mein? This is real soul food to guard against the gloom and the keep out the cold. Toss it together, draw the curtains and stoke up the fire: comfort food at its best. Check out this week's recipe, my Chilli Chicken Chow Mein, here on the site! Ching x
