National Curry Week takes place between 4th-10th October… – The 23rd National Curry Week takes place from the 4th to 10th October 2021. It’s been a difficult year but for one week only, let’s talk about curry instead of coronavirus. Whether you’re heading out to your local curry house or cooking up a storm using our official recipe book, we want you to be rejoicing in all things curry!
Since the 1970’s, curry houses have become a staple of highstreets up and down the country and millions of curries are consumed every single week. The love affair shows no signs of slowing and that’s what we’re celebrating with National Curry Week! Find out how you can join in by heading over to the National Curry Week website.
The very first National Curry Week took place in October 1998 and was founded by the late Peter Grove. Peter was a prominent journalist who had fallen in love with curry. His vision was to drive awareness and appreciation of the burgeoning Indian restaurant industry, whilst also raising funds for charity.
To this day National Curry Week honours this vision with its three core objectives:
- HONOUR THE NATION’S FAVOURITE CUISINE
- CELEBRATE AND SUPPORT THE INDIAN RESTAURANT INDUSTRY
- RAISE MONEY FOR POVERTY FOCUSSED CHARITIES
This year will be the 23rd National Curry Week and we’re committed to making it bigger and better than ever!
Ways to get involved include visiting your local Curry House, Purchasing the National Curry Week Recipe Book, or Hosting your own Curry Night.
From Bombay to Britain the cookery book has signature dishes from 50 of the UK’s finest restaurants. They have teamed up with India’s No. 1 Beer, Kingfisher to create this official National Curry Week Recipe Book.
With dishes like classic Chicken Tikka Masala, or turn up the heat with a King Prawn Piro Piro, or why not be adventurous with Aubergine Bhajis? This book will get everyone’s taste buds tingling!
