Books For Cooks/Spicy Peanut Satay Sauce

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.

Been dying to try this for ages & have just made it for family supper later. It's divine! Somehow I don't think it will last the week in the fridge:)
Thanks.

I tried this yesterday to go with chicken and veg skewered, cooked on the BBQ. The combination of flavours is really delicious and I couldn't help but organise dinner again this evening to include the satay sauce - super recipe. Thanks!
