¡HOLA! from Caracas

I'm 3,000 ft above sea level, it's a bright sunny day and the temperature is around 80ºF - and it's still not 8am!
My name's Clive, originally from Kent, England, married to a Venezuelan and living here in Caracas since 1981.
Passionate about cooking, love Indian food, Mediterranean food, Vegetarian food - and anything with chiles in it!
I founded a small company (MASALA) some 3 years ago, making chutneys, pickles and hot sauces, catering for small cocktail parties and providing Indian Gourmet meals for small dinner parties.

Hey Clive!

CJS is so right because this man is the Chutney King and he's as spicy as his sauces.
