Breakfast in Bed
A lAzY spicy Valentine’s brunch is just the ticket to impress for Jonny Nicholson of The Sail loft in Southwold. Whether you are making a
day of it this February 14th or you are wanting to be in the good books in the morning after the night before, a lazy brunch is a delightful thing to smooch over.
Spicy food, with all that chilli
rush and wealth of flavours, is great for the emotions, it stokes the fire and warms you up all over. But spice doesn’t have to mean burning heat, you don’t even have to put in any chilli peppers or dried powder at all, if that kick isn’t your thing. Earthy fragrant and zingy
spices such as cumin, coriander seed, cinnamon stick, fennel seed, curry leaves, none of them pack any punch, they just add lots of flavour. If you are novice to chillies, choose a large mild red chilli, remove the seeds and finely chop it, adding just a teaspoon to a stir fry for four and you will get the feel for the tingle without the pain. For an even lighter experience, finely chop a rehyrated ancho dried chilli to your meaty pasta sauce such as a bolognese. As you appreciate the flavour and the zing of what a chilli can bring, you’ll hopefully learn to love it and experiment with the dozens of types of chilli out there. And like me, you’ll just work your way up from that and in no time you’ll be unfazed by the c word on the menu, whatever the cuisine. Even I baulk at a vindaloo or a phal in a curry house, not so much the big burn, but just that I want to taste all the ingredients, not only the chillies. Back to ‘lovers’ day’, to spoil
