Sign ‘o the times

Popped into my local spice supplier today to re-stock on a few essentials (way cheaper than a supermarket, better choice and much bigger packages of spices & condiments). I asked where the fresh curry leaves were (they freeze really well) and the manageress explained they hadn’t had any frewsh supplies in for over a week – because of the ash…
I guess this will mean many of the Asian restauranteurs will be struggling with the same shortages. The limited supplies that are just beginning to make it to the markets (they buy at Spitalfields) are 3 – 4 times the usual price at wholesale. Tiem to ‘buy local’.
