people who work in kitchens tend to be really fabulous cooks, and fabulously underpaid and underappreciated.
veda makes a great coconut curry.
i'm not even going to post a recipe.
this is common sense, it just takes some care and some enthusiasm and a sense of culinary balance, like many things do. onions, garlic in oil. fresh colorful veggies, chickpeas, a can of coconut milk, and lots of spices. yup.
