Footnote

Well, the best laid plans of mice and men... I couldn't get Chinese cabbage so used a sweetheart cabbage. I forgot and used all of the coriander in the marinate for the ginger-spiced lamb and after dropping (and of course, breaking) a full bottle of olive oil, time was tight, so everything went in the food processor. Anyway, it still tasted great!

Peeling ginger

There is no need to peel ginger. As a result of attending a Thai cookery demo, we have learnt that peeling ginger is unnecessary unless for aesthetic purposes as the skin is high in fibre and full of flavour. However, do remove any bits that have become tough or woody.
