Current perceptions vs memory
« on: October 09, 2019, 03:04 AM »
I was away this weekend, at an NFL game in London and tried some of the street food on offer... I can only hope it (tailgate) is better in the USA.

Whilst I was away, some friends watched the game at my house and various dishes were available (obviously pre-cooked on the Friday/Saturday before and re-heated) of which there were two criticism (if it can be called that) that the dishes had more meat in them than is usual for a takeaway and not so much oil/gravy.

With the exception of keema curry, I have always found takeaway curries to be heavily gravy based and with the smallest amount of meat... something people, my friends it seems included have come to expect.

There have been many threads on this forum about the 'spice/flavour being in the oil of the dish' but I have never seen something about there being too much substance to the dish.

If you can learn something new and have a laugh, the day has not been wasted.
