The moment my eyes rested on DamsonGin in the index, I knew this would have a place in my future. I love so many different cuisines that narrowing it down to just one is tough - I think it would probably be Italian (but it would only be nudging out Spanish or Greek by a nose)

Tips and Timesavers

For your Christmas cherries this year, try big, black Damson Cherries from the South Island. This makes a great base to which shredded chicken, cooked prawns, broccoli florets, ginger, coriander, snow peas etc can all be added
