Probably because I grew up with my mum's Laotian cooking, I love
incredibly spicy food - the spicier the better - but the others didn't
seem to be as up for the hotter dishes as I was. I had what I thought
was a relatively mild curry but when Speedo, my fitness trainer, and
Nigel Sears, who is the Head Coach of Women's Tennis in Britain, tried
it, it seemed to set their mouths on fire. It was a pretty poor effort
from both of them, really.
