Secrets of spices

WI members learn about Bangladeshi cookery.

It was a happy group of 22 members and friends who attended the September meeting of Stanhoe and Barwick WI.

Junya Lewis, a talented lady of Bangladeshi origin but now from Norwich, spoke about “Spices and how to use them”, whilst demonstrating six different vegetarian dishes that are easy to prepare and are very tasty.

Along the way we were given a lot of useful tips including the best way to store spices and fresh herbs, the best oil to use which is low in cholesterol, the best way to chop herbs and freeze them for future use, and how to choose a mango and a head of garlic.

And of course at the end we were all encouraged to taste most of the dishes prepared.

In the business part of the meeting we were shown our entry for the 2018 Rose Bowl competition which won third prize, and also were shown the 2019 entry which is a walking map of Stanhoe encouraging people to visit all of its attractions.

It was a very friendly and inclusive afternoon and gave us all an insight into the speedy preparation of vegetarian dishes.
