"When I walk into my kitchen today, I am not alone. Whether we know it or not, none of us is. We bring fathers and mothers and kitchen tables, and every meal we have ever eaten. Food is never just food. It's also a way of getting at something else: who we are, who we have been, and who we want to be."........

Pork Meatballs...with Guacamole
1kg ground pork. It has to be fatty so as not to dry up during the cooking process.
1 red chilli, finely chopped with it’s seeds.
1 tbsp grated ginger root.
1 tbsp grated ginger root
1 tbsp parsley, chopped.
1 tsp fresh thyme, chopped.
1 tbsp Dijon mustard.
Zest of lemon, grated.
For the guacamole you’ll need 3 ripe avocados, juice of 3 limes, 1 chopped chilli, salt, freshly chopped coriander.
To make the meatballs mix everything in a bowl and form into small balls and chill in the fridge for a couple of hours. Bring back to room temperature before cooking. Fry them off on a griddle, you wont need fat.
For the guacamole just mash everything together, making sure the mix is a bit rough and not too much of a paste. Serve cold with the porkballs.
