Can flavours determine love? This was the subject of an email that landed in my inbox recently and I was instantly intrigued! New research conducted by Knorr which spoke to 12,000 people in 12 countries has shown that a whopping 78% of people say that they are more attracted to people who enjoy the same flavours as them. I can relate to this – there are very few things that I do not eat (I could probably count my food dislikes on one hand) and living with an extremely picky eater is not my idea of a good time.
This recipe went down a treat when I made it at home. Even my Little Miss (who finds the teensiest smidge of black pepper in any meal unbearably exotic) enjoyed it! These rich enchiladas are flavoured with Mexican inspired spices, topped with a double layer of sauce and baked to cheesy perfection in the oven. Get in my belly! As part of the #JoinTheBlendTrend series this recipe is also about blendability and that fabulous ingredient: mushrooms!
My husband and I were lucky enough to enjoy a trip to Mauritius for our honeymoon. The minute you land on this small island in the Indian Ocean you really feel as though you have reached tropical territory – stifling heat, humidity, sugar cane fields and leafy green vegetation as far as the eye can see.
Mauritian cuisine is as diverse as its people, with influences from France, China and India to name a few. We enjoyed incredible curries, seafood, beef chop suey and samoosas. Whatever it is that your tastebuds fancy you are likely to find it here!
