Brighton named Second Curry City20-10-2014
Brighton leapt from last year's 12th place to claim runners’ up spot in this year’s Curry Capital of Britain award - sponsored by Hungry Horse - which was won, as usual, by Bradford. Birmingham came third.
Peter Grove, organiser and founder of the event as part of 17th National Curry Week, awarded the Yorkshire city for the fourth consecutive time, saying, “It is as if they have found the magic formula ... they have understood the underlying message of the event to promote cohesion ... and have used curry as a bonding agent to bring different aspects of Bradford society together."
Grove was critical of some local authorities whose “lack of effort is very disappointing” and “could not be bothered to send out the tourist material expected … thus letting their restaurants down."
The four Brighton restaurants chose to spearhead the city’s bid this year were Ashoka, Bombay, Chilli Pickle and Indian Summer.
The Father of the British Curry Scene, Sake Dean Mohammed, opened the first curry restaurant in London in 1809. but later lived and died in Brighton. During the First World War Brighton’s Royal Pavilion (pictured) was used as a hospital for wounded Indian soldiers.
Full result: 1. Bradford, 2. Brighton, 3. Birmingham, 4. Leicester, 5. Leeds, 6.Cardiff, 7. London South/Nottingham, 9. London East, 10. Edinburgh/Liverpool, 12. London North, 13. Manchester/Sheffield, 15. London West/Oxford, 17. Wolverhampton, 18. London Central, 19.Northampton, 20.Newcastle. Four times winner Glasgow did not compete this year.

One of the country’s leading Indian restaurants, Brighton’s Indian Summer has unveiled a new menu in keeping with its philosophy of providing simple, healthy, delicious cooking with well-sourced, seasonal ingredients.
Restaurant owners Minesh Agnihotri and Byron Swales, have just emerged from their kitchen after spending two weeks solid developing and trialling new recipes with their talented brigade of chefs.

Joseph, who has worked for the restaurant for 10 years, adapting recipes learned from his mother.

Another debutant is the vegetarian ‘Polti Kachor’; delicate savoury parcels filled a crushed spice pea filling, served with pomegranate black sesame raita & tamarind sauce. The dish was devised by chef Jaswantsingh Maraj, who hails from in the Imperial Land of 'Marwar' in Rajasthan, and belongs to a cast in India who cooked only for Marwari Royalty.
