The Goat Curry in William Thackeray’s “Vanity Fair” / Geitekarrien i William Thackerays “Forfengelighetens Marked”

A hot curry recipe found on theguardian.comThe goat curry in William Thackeray's Vanity Fair_post

“Give Miss Sharp some curry, my dear,” said Mr. Sedley, laughing. Rebecca had never tasted the dish before. “Do you find it as good as everything else from India?” said Mr. Sedley. “Oh, excellent!” said Rebecca, who was suffering tortures with the cayenne pepper. “Try a chili with it, Miss Sharp,” said Joseph, really interested. “A chili,” said Rebecca, gasping. “Oh yes!” She thought a chili was something cool, as its name imported, and was served with some. “How fresh and green they look,” she said, and put one into her mouth. It was hotter than the curry; flesh and blood could bear it no longer. She laid down her fork. “Water, for Heaven’s sake, water!” she cried.

Karriboller Og Kokosris / Curry Meatballs And Coconut Rice


Rema 1000 – A part of Norwegian grocers history

It began with the pursuit of a retail concept that was different than the traditional corner store. On a study trip to Germany in 1977 representatives of the Reitan Group were  impressed by the German discount chain ALDI’s implemented simplicity. When Odd Reitan opened the first REMA grocers February 15th, 1979 at Bromstad in Trondheim it was an ALDI imitation.

The initial phase

In the initial phase the selection was limited to 500-600 articles, but this range was too narrow to be profitable. The store in Mo i Rana, which opened the following year, therefore increased the range of products to 1,000 articles. This was a great success and was continued in the three stores which from then went by the name REMA. It also led to the name of the chain being changed to Rema 1000 – an abbreviation for Reitan Food, 1000 articles.


The REMA 1000 concept has over the years been developed and improved, and the range of articles has changed in step with the times and customers’ shopping habits. But the Reitan Group still work by the same original philosophy.


The Reitan family are among the richest people in Norway and not long ago people like that had a social conscience. But not in our day and age, The Reitan Group has recently changed their beer distribution routines to increase their earnings even more and it is already begining to cost people their jobs at local breweries. Mack Brewery in Tromsø announced today that they are forced to let 35 people go.

Fun Facts To Know About Tabasco Hot Sauce


It’s difficult to imagine a breakfast skillet, hash browns, Bloody Marys, pizza, chicken wings, Cajun food, fried rice, and a whole lot other food without some drops of Tabasco sauce. It is a fascinating flavour enhancer with an even more fascinating history.

00_tabasco_02 Edmund McIlhenny first produced Tabasco sauce in 1868 on Avery Island, Louisiana. The sauce is still produced in the same location as it was in the 1800s. Additionally the process remains pretty much the same, of course the facilities have undergone modernisation throughout the years.

The sauce was named after the chili variety, which is used to produce it, known as Capsicum frutescens or the tabasco pepper. McIlhenny was gifted seeds from this pepper which he then planted on Avery Island to grow and produce the Tabasco hot sauce. It is believed that those seeds were brought from Mexico or Central America.

00_tabasco_03To distribute the sauce, in the early years, Mr. Edmund McIlhenny used discarded cologne bottles.

As the years went by and Tabasco become more popular the McIlhenny’s needed to expand their chili growing fields. Though some of the peppers are still grown on Avery Island, the company now has growers throughout Latin America.

Regardless of the place it was grown, the seeds all originate on Avery Island then are transported to the growing fields around the different countries. The peppers are always hand-picked in the same manner they were by the original creator, Edmund McIlhenny.


After being picked from the fields (around the world) the chilies make their way back to the production facilities on Avery Island. There they are turned into a mash with salt (that comes from Avery Island) which is then stored in white oak barrels. The barrels are sealed then 00_tabasco_05a layer of salt is poured over the top, and then they are allowed to age for three years before proceeding. After being aged, the mash is quality checked then taken to machines to be mixed with vinegar and stirred for about a month. After the mixing the pulp and seeds are separated from the sauce, then it is poured into the jars, labeled, and ready for distribution.

The sauce is now sold in over 160 countries around the world and the labels are translated into 22 languages and dialects. Tabasco is even part of the official space shuttle menus and given to American overseas soldiers in their MREs or meals ready to eat.

00_tabasco_06One of the many great things to love about Tabasco Pepper Sauce is the natural ingredients list that includes the three simple ingredients: vinegar, red pepper, and salt. Since there are no preservative it can cause the sauce to separate, and hence the need to shake it before using.

Tabasco is certified Kosher, Halal, and gluten free. In each teaspoon of Tabasco there are 0 calories, fat, carbohydrates and protein. But it does contain 35 mg (1% DV) of sodium. According to the company “...other hot sauces can contain four to five times more sodium than TABASCO® Original Red Sauce per serving...


The original Tabasco sauce has a Scoville rating of 2,500-5,000 SHU. The habanero variety is the spiciest in the collection but the original is the second spiciest.


•  According to the Tabasco website “A 2-oz. bottle of our Original Red Sauce contains at least 720 drops. (There are 60 drops per teaspoon; 3 teaspoons per tablespoon; 2 tablespoons per fluid ounce and 2 fluid ounces per bottle).
