DIARY: Tandoori reveals the secret curry cravings of Baywatch star Pam

We’re delighted to see that one of our favourite magazines has shot to prominence in the wake of Princess Di’s trip to Pakistan.

We’re delighted to see that one of our favourite magazines has shot to

prominence in the wake of Princess Di’s trip to Pakistan.



Tandoori magazine has been landing on the Diary’s desk for a year or so

now and delighting us with headlines such as ‘Bombay or bust’ - about

the opening of a Bollywood-themed restaurant in Sheffield - and ‘Glamour

comes to Wokingham’ - about a visit by Miss Bangladesh to the Assam

restaurant in that fine town.



Tandoori managed no less than two name-checks in the Sunday Times’

‘Brief Lives’ slot last weekend. The first featured some of its hot

stories that week, such as the one about Margaret Thatcher meeting the

daughter of an Epsom curry-house manager, and the second was for the

list of people that curry-lovers would most like to dine with (topped by

Imran Khan).



Campaign readers should know that there was something in it for anorak

and luvvie alike. First up was a big piece on ‘Understanding direct

marketing’ by Tony Mason (17 years at American Express), and there was

also a report on the new Roland Joffe epic commercial for Patak spices,

shot on location in Jaipur.



But our favourite bit in the February edition is the headline to the

story about Pamela Anderson developing a taste for curry on her recent

trip to Britain. Pammy, who is pregnant, is quoted as saying: ‘I don’t

know any decent curry places in LA so if my craving gets too bad, I’ll

have to fly a curry chef over from the UK to make me my favourite

chicken vindaloo.’



The accompanying headline? ‘Bayleafwatch!’
