It is now dawning that under Theresa May’s government, the prospect of more Bangladeshi chefs being granted work visas is more distant than ever. A law that came into effect in April 2016 states that a skilled chef from south Asia must earn £35,000 or more a year, after deductions for accommodation and meals, to come work in a British restaurant that also offers a takeaway service. (The figure is only slightly lower for restaurants without takeaways.) Lord Bilimoria, the entrepreneur behind Cobra beer, is part of an all-party parliamentary group lobbying to reverse the law, which he calls “ridiculous” and “discriminatory”. No ordinary curry chef earns £35,000 (the industry average is £22-25,000 but the cooks who marinate lamb chops and mix raita get less).
pe bune?! :)))))))))))))) Mama, mama cata fariseii si ipocritii sunt astia!!
Five “curry colleges” were to be set up in Birmingham, Manchester, London and Leeds, funded by £1.75m in public money, to mitigate the harsh effects of the coalition’s immigration policy on curry kitchens.
The idea was to offer six weeks of training followed by a two-year apprenticeship on the job in which British chefs with no previous background in Indian food would learn how to cook everything from lamb kebabs to chapatis. One of the curry college lecturers, Dipna Anand, admitted to the BBC that it would be a challenge to teach people with no knowledge of south Asian cuisine the techniques and spicing that the south Asian cooks who set up Britain’s curry houses understood automatically. The real challenge turned out to be persuading the unemployed British people to apply. Out of 70 possible places, the curry colleges attracted just 25 students, of whom nine dropped out. The whole scheme folded within a year of being set up
Si eu tind sa cred ca asta este unul dintre motive:
Maybe one of the reasons that the plight of the curry house has not received more attention is that to the average punter looking for a meal out, “Indian” is now just one option among many. Around a fifth of all British restaurants now serve various Asian cuisines. The generation that grew up eating chicken tikka became crazy for Vietnamese phô and Korean kimchi, for Japanese katsu curry and Szechuan pork, among others.
Totul e pe repede-inainte aici cand e vorba de mancare. Acum e japonez la moda, maine e saorma cu cous-cous, chinez, combinatii, exotisme noi. Inclusiv in supermarketuri nu ai consistenta de macar cateva luni de zile. Dupa vreo doua luni, schimba tot.
Asa ca nu prea vad sincer de ce sa ajuti cu bani de la buget aceasta bucatarie in detrimentul altora. Piata e tare cruda si nebuna aici si trebuie mereu sa schimbi, sa adaptezi.
In plus cred ca in perioada asta, se cauta mai mult chestii health, raw-vegan etc. Tinerii nu par atrasi de mancare buna, gatita.
Si fie vorba intre, din ce vad, aud, vorbesc - nici nu prea stiu ce e aia mancare gatita, buna in casa.
Nou, exotic si cu sclipici sa fie si gata: "awesome" si "brilliant".. Desi eu personal nici animalului de pe langa casa nu i-as da multe dintre mancarurile din localuri pe care astia le considera brilliant.
De gustibus. Dar totusi, cand te vad ca lesini de extaz pentru ca ti s-a pus in farfurie la restaurant niste fasole Heinz de la cutie...nu prea imi inspira incredere gusturile tale :)))))))))))
Dar da, chiar e in plan sa gasesc un restaurant indian bun aici. Dar e greu pana aflu care merita cu adevarat.
Chiar, @Travelerista ai testat vreunul pe aici si il recomanzi?
