That there is a steaming hot platter of Chicken Tikka Masala, otherwise known as the National Dish of Britain. Yes, it's even more popular than Pie and Mash or Fish and Chips. Also notice its healthy neon orange glow, which usually comes from tartrazine, a colorant that has been banned almost everywhere but here. Of course, if the chickens here are anything like the people, the color is the result of too many trips to the tanning salon. (To the Orange People: We can all tell that you're really pasty white. Please embrace your pasty whiteness before you develop the texture as well as the hue of Chicken Tikka Masala.)

Then again, it may just be the turmeric. It was delicious any way you slice it.
