One of the most famous sketches from the wonderful comedy show Goodness Gracious Me satirises the British yobbo attitude to Indian restaurants. In the sketch, a bunch of somewhat pissed young Indians have descended on an British restaurant, and are demanding 'the blandest thing on the menu'.

It looks like reality may be catching up.

"Many people say if it doesn't have chillies in it, it's not worth eating, but I don't believe in that. Sometimes if you eat spicy food all the time, you want something that's a little 'blander'," she says.

"the crew here loved the shepherd's pie - they never knew a British dish could taste like that and they were amazed," she says

They probably never before tasted a shepherd's pie made with good ingredients and generous quantities of herbs; I often get comments from people in the office that my lunch food smells good, but it's not made with anything they can't get in Sainsbury's, nor does it use tools or techniques beyond mere mortals either.
