Tom: Is this a vegetarian curry?
Ella: It’s like a curry without all the good bits.
Tom: So the aubergines are like the meat.
Ella: Aubergines are not like meat. They are like water.
Kirstin: You haven’t even tried it yet, Ella!
Tom: This is really tasty.
Ella: Well it’s still not going to taste like pork, is it?
Miles: Where is the meat?
Kirstin: Why don’t you try it?
Ella: *sigh*. Or should I just curry on complaining?
Miles: I tried it and I didn’t like it.
Kirstin: Well I do! I love the way it just sits in the oven for a good long while, brewing the flavours.
Ella: I like the rice!
Tom: What’s this stuff that isn’t aubergine?
Kirstin: Butternut squash. And chickpeas.
