It's been brought to my attention that Dev Biswal – Thanet restauranteur and head chef at The Ambrette – featured in an issue of The Grocer magazine earlier this month in which he slams some of the own-label curry sauces sold in supermarkets. In an investigation into the quality of said sauces, the Michelin Guide-recommended kitchen maestro tasted some of the offerings from Asda, Tesco, Sainsbury's and Morrisons and concluded that they could barely be considered 'curry' at all:

"The leading supermarkets make a big contribution to the degredation of so-called 'curries' by introducing such uncared for and low-end products. The general public has a right to eat authentic, healthy, affordable and good-tasting food."

I'm sure Mr. Biswal will be mighty pleased if the day finally comes when the masses descend upon Margate's proposed Arlington Tescos with bagfulls of Tesco Value Curry Sauce at 17p a tin, don't you?!

Many thanks to Dev Biswal who granted me permission to use the above image for this post. Please make sure you read his blog.
