The bags contain prototypes for a new product -- ready-prepared West Indian dishes. Andrew has a theory about why Indian restaurants prosper and West Indian don't.
White people aren't frightened of Asians. Working class Brits, intimidated by posh eateries, feel at home with a curry and lager served by a small polite brown man to whom they can still feel superior.
But they're frightened of Caribbeans. And there are Caribbeans who would be buggered if they'll be waiters to anyone.
So how to get the British eating West Indian food? The answer is to serve it to them in non-West Indian environments. Andrew's Typically Tropical line of prepared food would be served in Italian restaurants, Thai restaurants, even Indian restaurants. He hopes to premiere his new product at this February's IFE 95 show.
But not, evidently, for spicy people.
