The 13th Curry Capital of Britain and 18th National Curry Week (12th - 18th October) has been launched with a media lunch at Indian Summer restaurant in Brighton, supported by the city’s other leading restaurants - Chilli Pickle and Curry Leaf Café. Brighton & Hove was runner up in last year's competition won by Bradford.
Brighton, has home to the country’s first Indian restaurant opened by Dea Mohamed in 1809 and where we are today, Mohamed was also appointed as George IV’s “shampooing surgeon”, became known as “Dr Brighton” and later died aged over 100.
During World war I, Brighton’s Royal Pavilion was converted in to a military hospital tending to Indian troops injured at the front.
Last year the Bradford bid saw the four representative restaurants working together to promote the bid and raise money for charity togther with the council, schools involved, hotels, the Mayor and local companies involved.
Voting for team restaurants for Curry Capital of Britain 2015 open on 1st April via email@example.com.
Steenbergs, the artisan spice company, is running a competition to find the oldest spice in our store cupboards. Running throughout March, the oldest jar of spice will win the owner £50 worth of aromatic spices.
Steenbergs reasons that as March is the month of spring cleaning, it is time to root ancient herbs and spices, photograph them for posterity and then email or post on social media (#oldestspice).
Steenbergs packs its herbs and spices into glass jars with tight fitting lids. Stored away from light and heat they recommend an optimal shelf life of between 2 - 3 years. The Rippon-based spice merchant is also offering a recipe library to help hoarders use up their aged spices.
