Rana Ethnic crossover (103* d) RE: Ethnic crossover 28 Jul 99


Hi,

News article on what is now the "cuisine of Britain" the other week mentioned how the chains were jumping on the band wagon. Apparantly Burger King have a "Curry in a Hurry" and a friend confirmed McDonalds have a McKorma and Nan.

Reminds me also of a BBC documentary when visiting on History of British Cuisine. The one on Indian restaurants told of the louts coming in after the pubs closed for a curry. They spiced it up depending on how obnoxious the customer was. Apparently for one bad one they put in at least 4x the peppers for a vindaloo than they would normally and then watched as he was too proud to admit he couldn't take it.

Actually, when I go back I'll stick to curries at home and go out for a nostalgic Fish n' Chips - oh the days of 6 pennyworth of chips! One thing to avoid at chippies (especially north of Hadrians Wall are deep fried frozen pizzas and deep fried Mars bars in batter.

hungrily (but still an hour from lunch) Rana
