welcome to november

Sundays at this time of the year are the best, aren’t they? Lazy lie-ins, chilly walks punctuated by a pint, or two, then a packet of crisps torn down the middle for sharing, while you wait for someone else to make you a roast dinner (and wash up afterwards). If that sounds like your cup of tea (or jug of gravy), we’ve got just the guide for you – with our list of some of the country’s top gastropubs and the great walks that surround them. If you’re staying in and cooking, we’ve also got a great way to save a bit of pocket money so you can buy all of the Christmas gifts we’ve pulled together for the favourite foodies in your life (or just you – that’s allowed, too).…

This recipe was inspired by a recent trip to Malaysia, where a similar nyonya dish is ubiquitous. I tweaked it though, increasing the Marmite kick and making it less sweet.
