Add some warming spice to bonfire night
I always wonder how we manage to hold on to our wonderful heritage and weird cultural traditions in such politically correct, health and safety-conscious times, but long may it continue. Come November 5 most of us will be out celebrating Guy Fawkes Night, burning a human effigy and lighting explosives. I will be out there come rain or (moon)shine waving my sparkler and trying to get flames, not smoke signals, out of the bonfire.
Here’s a grown-up treat for Bonfire Night fun and frolics. Curry always goes down well and autumnal game is the perfect seasonal choice. Rogan josh or roghan ghost is a classic rich Indian dish, usually made with lamb, but it works well with beef, duck or wild meats, especially venison or hare.
