The short and sweet alphonso mango season is upon us and I have a box of carefully wrapped specimens from mumbai releasing their gentle floral perfume in the kitchen. I’m going to pair them with elderflower syrup as a topping for a cardamom and almond milk rice pudding. Also on the menu this week is another favourite of mine: panel – chickpea fritters in a roll, the classic street food of Palermo, Sicily. Full menu here.
