  2. As often happens, answering one question (how to make a lobster curry) only leads to more questions (the work of an oilman)

  3. How curious that curry paste was being sold not in a grocery but by the ‘oilmen’ who I always understood to be men who went house to house with a cart selling lamp oil and paraffin.
