Cool recipes to beat the heat, storecupboard essentials and feel-good food

in the August issue of Spinneys Magazine

One of the greatest things about living here in the UAE is the country’s international feel. This month we celebrate that global vibe with recipes from all over: Thai fish cakes, a stellar South African speciality, Gujarati curry, the best biryani we’ve ever made (try it and you’ll know what we mean) and much more.

Spinneys pride themselves on providing customers with products and ingredients from around the world, so no-one need feel homesick – if there’s a foodie item you really miss, let us know and we’ll see what we can do.

Elsewhere, we’ve come to the conclusion that August is the ideal time to restock the kitchen and replenish supplies for the busy months ahead. What’s more, you’ll find an array of recipes using only these essentials, so you can put them to good use right away.
