HOTEL LOVE: THE BEACHOUSE

 

Nos vamos a Francia al Medoc, ya mismo, ¿no? ¿Os pasa como a mí, veis las fotos de un hotel precioso y decidís organizar unas vacaciones enteras sólo por ir a ese sitio? Yo lo tengo decidido, y el verano que viene nos vamos a The Beachouse.

I don’t like to brag, but I really nail this curry. I tend to be very critic with my dishes but these prawns are an exception.

It’s also a healthy dish and my kids love them… you know, all the things I’m always looking for in my recipes.
