Curry chefs cook up a treat for Bradford charity dinner
6:00am Tuesday 17th September 2013 in News
Winning chefs of last year’s national Curry Capital competition were hosting a charity dinner in Bradford for 100 guests last night.
Chefs from from Aagrah, Akbars, Shimla Spice and Zouks cooked up spicy treats for VIPs on the guest list including Emmerdale TV star Matthew Wolfenden and for Peter Groves, the founder of the Curry Capital of Britain competition.
Money raised will go towards The Curry Tree charity which this year will be donated towards an organisation called Finding Your Feet which helps villages in India and Malawi become self-sufficient.
Mr Groves said: “Bradford’s hospitality reflects the very concept of curry, it just oozes warmth. Bradford as always is brilliant in supporting The Curry Tree’s work.”
Bradford’s contribution will go into the pot of funding that will come from other similar events being held around the country as part of National Curry Week from October 7 to October 13.
“We have 23 million regular curry eaters in this country – just think how much we would make for charity if each of them gave £1,” added Mr Groves.
