I PREPARED THIS DISH FOR MY PARENTS WHEN I WENT TO VISIT THEM AFTER I GOT BACK TO SYDNEY. MY MOTHER CALLED ME AT ONE O’CLOCK IN THE MORNING TO TELL ME THAT SHE COULDN’T SLEEP BECAUSE THEY WEREN’T ENTIRELY HAPPY WITH THE DISH AND THOUGHT I SHOULD CHANGE THE RECIPE. ‘IT NEEDS MORE SOUR, MORE SPICY,’ SHE SAID. OF COURSE I TOLD THEM THAT THEY WERE RIGHT AND THAT I WOULD CHANGE THE RECIPE — BUT I DIDN’T.
