HOT PLATES: Ben Sims – Rare Dub & Curried Lamb
It’s apt that Ben is our first ‘Music to Cook to’ subject, as Ben was in fact one of our first ever dubplate customers, over 15 years ago.
One thing you learn from a DJ like Ben Sims is not to pigeon hole them. Sims, best known for his techno wizardry brings the heat to the Carvery kitchen by delving deep into his broad collection with two hours of deep dub and reggae.
To accompany his mix we have joined forces with chef Troy Cundy. Troy, born and bred in East London, brings the flavour of multi-cultural London with a hard-hitting lamb curry sure to put a smile on your face and spring in your step.
Inspired by a traditional West Indian curry with rice and peas enjoyed at carnival and sound system parties, this dish always makes me think of sunshine, BBQ smoke and the rumble of heavy dub roots sound system.
Time: When the tunes are over. 2hrs
Note, do not uncover or be tempted to stir until 20 minutes. Turn off heat. Leave covered and rest for 10 minutes.
