ONE OF THE biggest lessons to emerge from the turmoil of 2020 is an overwhelming desire to stop and smell the roses. Or, the fragrant Goan coconut lamb curry. (Drooling? You’ll find the recipe on p 71.) To take it slow, rather than madly tick off bucket lists or stagger about in some crazed competition of who can be the busiest queen bee.
