Clue: He had a cook called Ali Sharif. Ali Sharif wore a fez and a long white robe. The Cook’s English reading was not good and he once served curried Bully Beef and Rice for dinner. It was noticed that the colour being different from what was expected and the smell was different from the expected curry aroma. Ali disappeared and promptly returned and presented the packet that he used to curry the dish. The packet was labelled " Cooper's Sheep Dip”.
