Thomasina Miers’ recipe for quail with runner beans and roast red pepper sauce

Iwas chatting to a chef friend recently about his three-month journey across Turkey and Syria, just before civil war broke out.

Wild mint grows in the cracks between the steps just behind our house in Gela. So does another vigorous weed that smells a little like cat pee. And then there are the actual cats, also wild, which slink up and down the steps looking both terrifying and terrified. Neither, though, can quite snuff out the unmistakeable scent of the mint – a cool menthol breath mixed with something musty.
