I've long been a supporter of Patak's, the Lancashire-based Indian sauce-andpickle conglomerate that was acquired last week by Associated British Foods for an undisclosed price thought to be someplace north of [pounds sterling] . Kirit's dad Laxmishankar Pathak, who arrived with [pounds sterling] 5 and started making samosas and sweets in a cellar in Kentish Town in 1957, was a tough taskmaster having a custom of getting into trouble. He nearly went bankrupt after burning his fingers on a dodgy distribution contract in the late 1960s, and also the firm actually prospered just after he handed over day to day running to Kirit and Meena (who was a food technology grad) in 1976.Pathak senior went to entangle himself in fraud allegations against the prior Indian prime minister N.V. Narasimha Rao, to whose private guru Pathak promised to have paid $100,000 to secure a newsprint supply contract which never materialized. Meanwhile.Meanwhile Kirit fought -- and is thought to have settled for [pounds sterling]9 million -- a five-year legal struggle along with his two sisters over their claim to shares in the curry company. Despite these ructions, the brand became a favourite with British supermarket shoppers. Stacked alongside shinier concoctions from the likes of Uncle Ben and Loyd Grossman, the sauces of Patak speak of credibility even when they are occasionally distantly related to what is in fact eaten in India -- and even in the event the temptation to combine in extra ingredients can sometimes cause disaster. I attempted to amuse Viewer readers by road-testing an eccentric selection of 'cook-in sauces', among them Patak's Goan Pineapple, which I turned with the addition of uncalled for fried onions. 'This one was a lovely shade of yellow in the jar, ' I wrote. 'I was tempted to paint the kitchen with it, and that I might have done.' Patak's will form portion of a section, and will now become a part of the vast ABF brand portfolio, from Kingsmill to Twinings, chaired by Kirit, which comprises 'panoriental' Blue Dragon products and other 'world food' lines. It'll be a pity if this blend of big-corporate ingredients creates the sort of mess that is bland which I found within my cooking pot; despite the change of ownership, the Pathak family business should struggle to retain its distinctive, fiery flavour.
