HOT PLATES: Pork Patty Paos with The Diggers
An advocate of feel-good food, Chris Airplays of The Diggers shares with us his mouth-watering recipe for pork pao patties. Pao (also known as ‘pau’ or ‘pav’) the word for puffy bread rolls in Indian cuisine, provides the perfect doughy cushion between which sits a juicy, spiced, pork patty. Salivating yet?
Turning 10 years this month, The Diggers has been an outlet for a plethora of creative projects; clothing collections, record fairs, socials, poster art, podcasts, parties and more recently his latest culinary exploits. Chris was, therefore, an obvious candidate for The Carvery kitchen. His mix is a culmination of contrasting flavours; cold grandma curries straight from a school friend’s stovetop, bring and share NHS lunches, a stubborn stance not to mix at 16 enforced by a mixer with no cue.
