The curry pasta salad in Annette Human’s Winning Recipes 3 was a staple when I was growing up. It’s still a favourite (now made with brown rice); here’s my ode to the original.

1. Thread the pork, sweet pepper, peaches and Peppadews onto kebab sticks and fry in a pan or cook under a preheated grill or over the coals. Brush lightly with olive oil for added flavour and colour.

2. Mix the cooked pasta, mayonnaise, curry, onion and parsley; season with salt and pepper and serve with pork kebabs.
