Hump Day Happiness with Crazy for Curry 5

Crazy for Curry – Thai Curry – Pestle Rock

http://www.pestlerock.com/

I'm going to scream this from the mountain top, there's no such thing as 'a curry.' There's six kazillion different kinds of curry. When someone asks how to make chicken curry, I have to ask 'Which one?' Aarti Sequeira.

Thai curry – Thai curries is characterized by a variety of indigenous ingredients that typically includes some mix of lemon-grass, garlic, shallots, kaffir lime, red chili, and green pepper. Some Thai curries use tamarind sauce and cinnamon. There are northern and southern styles of Thai curry, but Bangkok offers plenty of both styles.

Curry is a generic description used throughout Western culture to describe a variety of dishes from Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Sri Lankan, Thai or other Southeast Asian cuisines. The chief spices found in most South Asian curry powders are turmeric, coriander, and cumin; a wide range of additional spices may be included depending on the geographic region and the foods being included (white/red meat, fish, lentils, rice and vegetables). Curry's popularity in recent decades has spread outward from Southern Asia to figure prominently in international cooking. Consequently, each culture has adopted spices in its indigenous cooking to suit its own unique tastes and cultural sensibilities. Curry can therefore be called a pan-Asian or global phenomenon with immense popularity in Thai, British, Japanese and Caribbean cuisines.

+1: As the Event Organizer, I am able to add anyone (or more) to the event. Most times, I add members who really, really, really, want to go to that particular event or members who had not had luck to get into my foodie event. Contact me by email and leave a phone number to call you.

No Show Rule: STF members who are in a “RSVP YES” status 24-hour prior to the event and either cancels or does not show up at the event will be listed as a "NO SHOW". Again, email and let me know what’s up to avoid the NO SHOW status. Two (2) NO SHOWs means you are remove from my list for any events in the future. Email about the event will go out 48-hours prior to the event as a reminder.

Waitlisters: STF, there is ALWAYS a chance that one, two or three waitlisted members will move into the RSVP YES list in that 24 hour period. Review your RSVP and determine if you are still attending this event. If not, remove yourself off the RSVP waitlist.

Waitlister, if your name should move from waitlist to “YES” 24-hour prior to event, then that Waitlister will not be subject to the "NO SHOW" rule.

Stand by: If you want to be a STANDBY member at the event, email me your phone number and I can call you to attend if a last minute cancellation comes up.

Notes: Cash payment to the restaurant always works better than credit card! There are no guarantees that the event will have separate checks, good service, or credit card acceptance. This goes for food as well!! Review the web link provided in the event notice. Large groups are charge 18% or 20% tips.

Photos: Photos are our way at expressing our happiness with the STF event. If you DO NOT like photos, YOU MUST let me or the person taking group photos aware of your dislike, otherwise, your photo may appear on the event.

Group Payment: Most times, the members at the table are all about sharing food and sharing the final bill (minus drinks and liquor); if you do not want to be included, let ME KNOW BEFORE the ordering takes place.

Complaints: Complain to me if you are unhappy. I will try my best to listen and assist. My supervisor is Joe; call him if you are unhappy with me. If you are unhappy or experiencing someone harassing you, let me, know! No one needs to be harassed or feel uncomfortable.

Your Event Host,

Rhonda
