Brits ‘Love/Hate Curry more than Marmite!

I was fascinated to learn that curry has overtaken marmite as the food most loved and hated by the UK public.

BBC’s Good Food magazine recently published the results of a survey to establish the foods most liked and hated in Britain.  Curry was announced as the 5th most loved food, knocking chocolate out of the top five.

On 26th November the 14th annual British Curry Awards, once described by David Cameron as ‘the Curry Oscars’, were presented at The Battersea Evolution in London.

A Rainbow of Curries from Around the World!

I have mentioned before that curried dishes are found all over the world.  Here is a selection of some of the more colourful, and occasionally unusually flavoured, curries, in no particular order:

1.Pink curry veggie wrap.  This features lettuce, tomato and cucumber but it gets its colouring from the key ingredient which is beetroot.

2.Thai yellow curry.  A popular mild but tasty dish made with nutmeg, ginger and coconut milk.

3.Black curry.  A Japanese speciality, it incorporates norikuro which is a black type of seaweed.  The dish is served with often served with a poached egg.

4.Orange halibut curry.  The halibut is chopped into cubes and cooked with onions, garlic, tomatoes, mustard, orange rind and anchovies to provide an extremely ‘fishy’ tasting curry.

Weather Too Hot?  Cool Down with a Curry!

Our long hot summer continues with just the odd drop of rain.  However, it is not everyone that enjoys the soaring temperatures and many of us are looking for ways of cooling down.

When it comes to eating you might think that a salad or cold soup is the sensible answer but you would be wrong.  Believe it or not, the best food to eat if you want to stay cool is a spicy curry.

This is because of an anomaly in the way our body reacts to spicy food.  The heat of the spices make you sweat and sweating cools you down.

Think about drinking a long cool drink swimming with ice on a hot day.  It gives you an instant feeling of refreshment and does initially cool you down.  However, the sensation is short-lived.  You have cooled down too quickly and your body compensates by heating up again, dropping you into a vicious circle.
