NATIONAL CURRY WEEK – 4th – 9th OCTOBER 2022…

National Curry Week – 4th-9th October 2022

If you are a lover of curry then this is the week for you to try different flavours.

The 24th National Curry Week takes place from the 3rd to 9th October 2022. 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 their official recipe book, they want you to be rejoicing in all things curry!

IT HAS OFTEN BEEN SAID CURRY IS THE NEW NATIONAL DISH OF BRITAIN AND IT’S CERTAINLY EASY TO SEE WHY.

Since the 1970’s, curry houses have become a staple of high streets up and down the country and millions of curries are consumed every week. The love affair shows no signs of slowing and that’s what they are celebrating with National Curry Week!

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:

  1. HONOUR THE NATION’S FAVOURITE CUISINE
  2. CELEBRATE AND SUPPORT THE INDIAN RESTAURANT INDUSTRY
  3. RAISE MONEY FOR POVERTY FOCUSED CHARITIES

This year will be the 24th National Curry Week and we’re committed to making it bigger and better than ever!

THEY HAVE TEAMED UP WITH INDIA’S NO.1 BEER, KINGFISHER TO CREATE THE OFFICIAL NATIONAL CURRY WEEK RECIPE BOOK, ‘FROM BOMBAY TO BRITAIN’; FEATURING SIGNATURE DISHES FROM SOME OF THE TOP INDIAN RESTAURANTS IN THE UK.

Impress your dinner party guests with a 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! Buy it here
