‘This dish started life in the Shandong region of China, where it was called “fried sauce noodles’ according to Brian Yarvin, author of A World of Noodles. ‘Then it jumped across to Korea, where Chinese migrants started cooking it. Since then, it’s achieved near-national-dish status. In fact, its one hundredth anniversary in Korea was celebrated in 2005’.

APPETISERS

From Diana Henry’s book ‘A Change of Appetite’. ‘Goat’s curd – which tastes like light, creamy, almost ‘unformed’ goat’s cheese – is quite hard to find unless you live near a top-notch cheesemonger’, she says. ‘But it’s a cinch to make.’

From Diana Henry’s book ‘A Change of Appetite’. ‘Incredibly easy’, says Diana. ‘Not sugar-free I know but, as cakes go, not bad. And it is for dessert. Serve thin slices with Greek yogurt.’
