Bradford retains title of Britain's Capital of Curry
Bradford today retained its Curry Capital of Britain title, making it the third time the district has held the honour.
The 2012 competition saw both Bradford and previous winner Glasgow receive the same number of points from the judges. But the title went to Bradford on a tie break due to it receiving a higher number of votes in the public poll.
Organisers said that Bradford had hung on to the title by the “narrowest of margins” and that the tenth year of the competition was its “greatest ever”.
They described Bradford as a city that “seems to eat, breathe and even export curry”.
Bradford has now held the Curry Capital of Britain honour three times, first in 2004, then last year and now in 2012.
This year’s entry took the form of a film highlighting the success of Bradford’s curry industry. The four restaurants chosen by the public to represent Bradford this time were Aagrah, Akbar's, Shimla Spice, and Zouk.
