Chilli Con Carne, Scott Gooding

So much of my passion and love of food has been shaped by my roots in UK. My mum was an absolute superstar in the kitchen, cooking for customers in busy pubs for nearly 40 years. One thing I miss is my mum’s cooking and her chilli con carne is certainly one of those dishes.
