Astragal has been on the receiving end of a bizarre communication from 'The Lord of Harpole, in the Parish of Wickham Market, UK', who turns out to be Abdul Latif, Britain's -rst Bangladeshi lord of the manor and proprietor of the Curry Capital restaurant on Newcastle's Bigg Market. Lord Harpole says he is 'delighted' to inform us that he has created the world's hottest curry - which he has dubbed 'Curry Hell'. He is inviting Astragal, and any readers who may be interested, to sample said curry, available in vegetarian or nonvegetarian form, and with a side order of naan bread, pilau rice or chips, absolutely free of charge. That is, as long as you manage to eat the entire portion. If not, a princely sum of £6.95 will be applied. Lord Harpole also points out that a takeaway Curry Hell is available anywhere in the world - but you will have to come to the restaurant to pick it up. Any readers who fancy the challenge should visit www.curryhell. com.
