MEAT-FREE NACHOS MAKES FOR AN EASY CROWD-PLEASER (P68)Oh, to be that kid again – the one who roamed the sole-searing streets with a bunch of like-minded bare-footed children, for whom the summer days stretched endlessly into the hot, light nights. We were awake from dawn ’til well past dusk, but what did we eat? I do remember the joy of cold, ripe tomato on fresh white bread with a sprinkling of salt, sucking on a mango seed until there was nothing left but pale yellow fibre, and chomping through a bag of cherries trying to find the doubles to wear as ‘earrings’Then the holidays were over and it was back to school, with days and days of stale honey sambos wrapped in greaseproof paper, warm milk that’d been sitting in…
