|Pork tikka masala and rice|
Food Diary (November 10, 2011)
Breakfast: Rolled oats with plums and flax seeds
Lunch: Pork tikka masala and rice
Dinner: Flatbread with mushroom and onions
Pork tikka masala was nice, uncommon but nice. I’ve only heard of restaurants selling chicken tikka masala. I guess tikka masala is more suited to mild flavoured meats such as chicken. Or there could be religious reasons. If the dish was invented by Indians, then no beef. If it was invented by Muslims then no pork. Chicken is fairly neutral and widely available in India which is probably why chicken got selected. It makes me curious how beef or lamb tikka masala will taste.

Wines getting stolen is not surprising news. Thieves in Germany have become more advance, years advance, by stealing grapes before it is turned into wine. Hundreds of thousands of euros worth of grapes have been stolen across the wine region.
For vineyards this is bad news. According to Ernst Buescher, a spokesman for the German Wine Institute, many vineyards may face bankruptcy this year after losing all of their fruit to the May frost. However the grapes that survived have been particularly good, producing some of the best wine in years. The thieves got their timing right.
While it may be bad news for vineyards, consumers could benefit. It is most likely that wine will be produced from the grapes and the price could be lower due to the circumstances under which the grapes were obtained. While it may be good for consumers its still bad overall to steal.
