Residents from Arrowfield Estate met to create and sample a rich Spanish dish of chicken and chorizo stew, aptly demonstrated by Juliet. She explained the subtle flavours of saffron and sweet paprika and showed us how to de-glaze our pan with a touch of dry sherry to incorporate all the ingredients. We also made a chickpea and spinach side dish with leeks grown on The Lost Plot, our local community allotment. Phoebe (13) was able to show us her chopping skills and many new people joined us as word spread of a fun evening of shared skills and delicious food.
