A Week of Curry

Some things just make you feel good. For me, one of those is seeing 'National Curry Week' approaching! This glorious celebration of Britains' favourite food take place from the 7th to 13th October 2013.

Red Tractor Beef and Lamb took a poll of 2,000 people in 2011, and concluded that; The average Brit will spend £34,070 on curry in their lifetime.

Researchers found the typical adult splashes out £8.19pp on spicy delights a week, including takeaways, ingredients and sauces. Sounds like £425 a year very well spent!

In a wonderful dream, I imagined my wife serving me curry every night of National Curry Week. Some meals were takeaways, some home-made, and some eaten in Zaika after a visit to one or more of the village pubs. My mind savoured over the changing selection of spicy and mild meat dishes, accompanied by various breads and ... amazingly, vegetables were made edible due to great sauces. I even pictured having marmalade on popadums for breakfast.

Waking up with a warm glow, I turned to one side to see my wife happily dreaming. I suspect her dream was not the same as mine, and if I manage to convince her to have curry twice in the same week I will have done pretty well.
That however does not stop me doing my bit for the occasion. A couple of 'Boy's Night's Out', and a 'Business Lunch' or two, should ensure that I make my contribution to National Curry Week.
Word on the street is that Zaika in Milford on Sea High Street, are currently serving top draw dishes. Having been myself, plus feedback from my son, a couple of neighbours and some friends who stayed in the village, all said the food was excellent.
