RHS Ambassadors Lerato & Manoj Malde Opening the first ever Festival of Flavours at the Royal Horticultural Society Gardens in Bridgewater near Manchester ~ “It was exciting to cook live using wonderful seasonal vegetables from the kitchen garden, talking to visitors about learning to grow their own food, and maximising flavours with fresh ingredients, spices & herbs. Thanks to the RHS for celebrating flavours from across the world. I shared a recipe of Braised Greens with Sweet Peppers from my cookbook. A recipe that is perfect for the season and adaptable with different greens.” ~ Check out some of what we were up to here and a clip from the our feature in the BBC News Africana cookbook can now be found in the RHS gift shop in Bridgewater.
