If, like me, you are a lover of cookbooks and good food there is a little place hidden away in Notting Hill, London that sounds like a dream come true. It's a book store which contains 1000's of titles and recipes from some of these books are put to the test each day in the stores cafe. A place I must pencil in to visit some day!!
This recipe is credited to the owner of that bookstore, Eric Treuille.
It works well with the chicken satay or any grilled/BBQ meats. The sauce will keep for about 1 week in the fridge.
