Bannock is a crumbly flat bread similar to scones (or the American biscuits) typical of Scotland. Native Americans make a similar flat bread which is now also called bannock.
Curries (or curry-like concoctions) are a great winter food. They are delicious, can be done in one pot, can be cooked in large batches and they are a fantastic way to use up all the loose ends that are going around in your fridge.
