  1. Nice Blog. I've been doing the LC thing for awhile now and its been working well. 30kg lost now and only a little bit to go.

    Anyway. For a Spanish dish, I would perhaps question the use of Nutmeg and the chinese rice wine although dry sherry would be excellent. As a suggestion from a food snob, however I would suggest Sherry Vinegar for authenticity.

    Either way, it looks like a wonderfully delicious dish and I will be trying it very very soon.

  2. Hello

    Thank you for your comments.
    I have removed the word 'Spanish' and I should have mentioned that dry sherry is fine to use, I have never tried it myself as living in such a remote area - it's not available here so I only ever use Shaoxing

    Please let me know what you thought if/when you try this dish.
