Oh baby that was good. Beads of sweat are still running down my brow, and Raul is sprawled exhausted and satisfied on the sofa. I had to settle for ginger and anchovy for galangal and shrimp paste, but with my taste buds peeled off and left sizzling on the side of my plate I have no complaints about having to talk funny for the next day or two.
