On Saturday The Scotsman proclaimed that the heat wave was set to continue and today the front page tells me that it’s all over – as of now!  Well despite being completely decked out in pastel shades and strappy shoes I have to admit that  it is a little on the chilly side now,  so I reckon it is time to cook up something a little more warming than a salad.

 

This is a really simple and tasty  stew which is packed with flavour from chorizo, paprika and coriander.  It is hard to beat the tantalising smell of garlic, onions and chorizo sizzling in a pan – one of life’s culinary pleasures.

This rustic stew is fantastic served with hunks of crusty bread and butter and a large glass of red wine.
