Peter: Wow. That’s a big pile of chickpeas. Would you like to inflate this hot air balloon?
Anna: You don’t chickpeas as an excuse. It’s not just chickpeas anyway. There’s a very large amount of squid here too.
Peter: Yes, I like this. I see we have another Asian-type recipe from Bill. It looks Asian. It’s on a lettuce leaf.
Anna: Actually it has ras el hanout and preserved lemons in it. So it’s more North African than Asian really.
Peter: I guess that would explain the chickpeas. But not the squid. Is it a fusion?
Anna: I suppose so, yes. Did you actually like it?
Peter: Yes. It was light but wholesome.
Anna: I think this is a very interesting way to do squid. And I’m always looking for new ways to do squid.
Peter: But was it “easy”?
Anna: Yes it was. First recipe a success!
