Title: Curry in the Crown : The Story of Britain's ...

Publisher: Harper Collins

Book Condition: As New

Description:

"A 1997 Gallup poll of British tastes in food showed that curry was beyond doubt the nation's favourite food with over a quarter of Britons eating it at least once a week. Gallup concluded that Britain was becoming a nation of 'curryholics'. The curry revolution has broken down all the bastions of British society--from Sunday roast to traditional pub grub. There is now a National Curry Day in Britain and a Curry club in the House of Lords. " Curry in the crown traces the history of this spicy colonization of the United Kingdom from the time of the East India Company. From the setting up of the first Indian restaurant on London's Drummond Street to the latest upmarket restaurants serving specialised Indian regional cuisine, the journey of Indian food from the kitchens of expatriate Indians to the tables and hearts of the British populace has been mind-boggling. Curry in the Crown tells the story of supermarkets being flooded with ready-made Indian cuisine produced by both Indian and British companies. "Success stories like the Pathaks, G.K. Noon and Parween Warsi of S & A Foods, and their climb to the Sunday Times' list of the richest people in Britain adds extra spice to the fantastic tale of this industry. "Shrabani Basu discusses in detail the growth of the Indian food business from small halwai shops to a million pound industry. With many interesting anecdotes and surprisingly candid insights into the busy scenario of the Indian food business, this book is truly a food lover's delight." 206 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 9536
