Red Bull syrup.

also i have discovered that the asian grocers are a great escape from supermarket covid misery.

if you’re weary and wary of the big shop, check out your nearest. never crowded, can get almost anything you need, smaller range but the fresh fruit and veg always seems better quality than tesco.

top tip.


any brands without palm oil?

Some amchoor please

TV would like some banana pocky type things please

is that the mango stuff? that’s brilliant, got a big jar of the masala spice mix from the dishoom recipe book, it goes on everything.

i will check! (probably not)

Yes it is - I think it’s one of the things that’s missing from my curries

Also could you grab some black cardamom?
