Up until about 3 months ago I had actually never had chips and curry sauce- it passed me by even with all those late night takeaways in my youth!

I had it for the very first time at our ‘local’ (and it’s a pretty special local) Glazebrook House. The Executive Chef is Anton Piotrowski (he won Masterchef professionals in 2012). My husband and I had a rare day off together, both kids were at school/nursery and we had a gorgeous walk up on Dartmoor and stopped off on our way back. It was a lovely early summer day and we had a beer out in the beautiful garden. We got a bit peckish and ordered their triple cooked chips and curry sauce (I know, not very slimming but you have to treat yourself sometimes!)- wow they were amazing, and I know, this is a restaurant deserving of a Michelin star, so of course they were, but it certainly removed any of my hangups about chips and curry sauce! So now I’m embracing this, and the good news is, it’s so easy to make a healthy version that still tastes amazing!
