Indian Food At The Theatre

If you’re living in Britain, or know about the current political climate there, you might know that immigrants are facing increasing backlash as are English citizens of non-English heritage. Putting aside all of that controversy is an Indian citizen changing how we view Indian food through art and the theatre as well as through his delicious street food itself.

This is important because cultural immersion still works; multiculturalism may be flawed but further integration can still work. theatre has a role in molding cultures that not every part of society can uniquely fill. All different cultures have art and theatre, and all of it is brilliant. The best theatre in the 21st century is attempting to bring together the best in theatre from various parts of the world into one cultural experience.

That’s a tall order for a play, but food helps. We know that food is one of the most culturally significant parts of a person’s identity and is often the last thing a person will lose if they ever lose their culture in a new environment. Food is also a great way for cultures to mix, with different English cities coming up with dishes that reflect a strong Indian, North African, and even Eastern European presence.

Combining the two together could really do a lot of good at some fringe of the border between tolerance and hate, but for the price of good food and a good show, why not give it a try?

Low-Carb? No Way. Pasta Is Back & It’s Here To Stay.

The Pasta Trend Is Back

Pasta is back in fashion. The trend of low-carb diets has had a toll on both sales and consumption of pasta in past years. This trend is slowly giving way and giving pasta a big comeback. More and more consumers are seeking out not only pastas, but also the sauces that they are garnished with.

The sales numbers are quite revealing. It seems that this new trend is pointing more towards short cut pastas rather than your standard spaghetti or angel hairs. People are craving and buying rigatoni, linguine, and even elbows at an alarmingly high rate. These pastas are flying off the shelves despite the proven evidence that a low-carb diet is better for you.

This trend is also overlapping to the internet. Search engines for new and inventive ways to prepare pasta are showing greater hits. It seems that people not only want their pasta, they want new and fun ways to eat it too.

The number one pasta to grow in popularity in the last year is rigatoni. This is a short cut, easy to prepare and use pasta. Rigatoni is showing up in a number of recipes that include meats, cheeses, fish and even as a stand alone dish. A very popular variation using rigatoni is a rigatoni pie that uses ground beef and tons of delicious melted cheese. Pasta is back and is growing in popularity and variety fast.
