    Taming the tagine genie

    Brunch, Published on 02/03/2014

    » A little more than two months after Christmas and I’m still not sure I’m ready to cook big formal menus again. This kind of meal is much more my kind of thing, so easy and casual that at no point does it need to feel like a chore for the host.

When my children were growing up, my son would not let me pick ripe fruit from a papaya tree that was within reach of his bedroom window so that squirrels would come to feed on them. “We can buy fruit, the squirrels cannot,” he said. Now we have star fruit trees, and the ground under them is littered by young fruit which have fallen after squirrels have eaten their tender seeds. During the mango season, the fluffy-tailed rodents jump to neighbouring trees to merrily nibble at my neighbour’s ripening mangoes, or jackfruit on another neighbour’s tree.

    » On a humid July day in Shan state, a 12-year-old girl was playing under the monsoon rains falling over her tiny northern township of Ke See. The Myanmar army had been quietly building a presence there since 2009, after the government signed a deal with China to lay pipelines through the area to take oil and gas from the Rakhine basin in the west to Yunnan province.
