Last year a quarter of a million curry fans voted for their favourite city, with Bradford narrowly beating Glasgow and Wolverhampton to receive the prestigious Curry Capital crown – for the third time.
And it’s voting time again.
In a press release, organisers the Federation of Specialist Restaurants (Fedrest), in association with lead sponsors hungryhouse.co.uk sent through the following informationa and the chance to win a £300 voucher.
Founded by food historian and author Peter Grove, the Curry Capital of Britain is part of National Curry Week and showcases the cultural richness of Britain’s largest cities, encapsulating the passion of the British Indian food industry.
Each participating city will be represented by four local restaurants, who will campaign on behalf of their city and make their case to the judges. The public can also now vote online for their chosen city via the new website: currycapitalofbritain.org.uk/vote, with the winning city announced on October 13. An awards ceremony will take place on an exclusive Thames River Cruise on October 27 and the trophy will be presented to the winner.
For the first time ever the awards will recognise the excellent quality of takeaway restaurants in Britain with the inclusion of the hungryhouse.co.uk Takeaway Award. The new award will go to the winning city’s best takeaway restaurant, as selected by hungryhouse.co.uk’s Top Takeways Campaign 2013.
