Food: Spice Temple

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:08 pm on 16 June 2017

The chefs at one of the country's top restaurants are getting some cooking lessons from their regular fruit supplier.

Cuba St Fruit mart, owned by the Dayal family, has been supplying Logan Brown in Wellington for 20 years, and Puspa Dayal is taking the restaurant's chefs under her wing to teach them her recipes and recreate the flavours of Gujarati cuisine...

Her son, Sanjay Dayal talks to Jesse about the project, called the Spice Temple, which will be one of the food events at the upcoming Wellington on a Plate Festival

And he shares a recipe for his Mum's Crab Curry.
