LOCAL PEDANT CHOKES ON SMALL PRINT

Food at the National Library of Scotland has improved hugely since Jane St-based caterers Galway Gourmet took over.

‘Jaundiced of Claremont’ reports enjoying a biryani there recently. So much so that afterwards he carefully studied the list of ingredients to discover its secret.

Was it the ‘spiced rice, carrot, and potatoes’? Nothing unusual about those. What about the ‘mushrooms, sunflower, almond, salt and pepper’? No again.

Oh dear. In that case, it can only have been ... the ‘pees’.
