4 cloves garlic
2 sticks celery
1 kg minced beef
2 tsp ground cumin
3 bay leaves
1 tsp oregano
2 tsp sweet paprika
3 tsp cayenne pepper
6 tbsp tomato puree
3x 400g tin chopped tomatoes
100ml malt vinegar
2x 400g tin kidney beans, drained
Peel and quarter the carrots and onions, chop the celery and peel the garlic blitz all the veg in the food processor until they are chopped very finely.
Heat the oil in a large deep pan, add the veg and fry until they have all softened.
Add the minced beef and cook until it is brown all over, around 10 minutes. Then add all the other ingredients and stir well. Cook uncovered for two hours on the hob, stirring occasionally, and add a little water to stop it drying out if necessary.
Serves 6-8 people. This recipe is a great one to prepare in advance (or make double) and freeze.

I have worked with James Constable over the past few months on several recruitment briefs for varied interim and permanent roles. It has been a pleasure to work with a recruitment consultant who has an excellent understanding of the food industry and the roles that we have been looking to fill. For senior level positions, James has conducted a thorough screening, including meeting the candidate face to face, and has therefore been able to provide an excellent shortlist. Some roles have also been urgent, due to an immediate requirement in the business, and James was able to prioritise and help source these roles, whilst not losing focus on the other briefs. I would wholeheartedly recommend James for an effective, efficient and friendly approach to recruitment. Many thanks!
