British Curry Festival Travels India

'Taste of Britain Curry Festival' is all set to travel to the home of curries – India – with leading British chefs aiming to recreate an exclusive selection of dishes that have become a hit in the European country.

Beginning on August 23 at Hyatt Regency Hotel in Kolkata, the festival will see seven British chefs produce as many as 70 dishes including high street favourites like British Chicken Tikka Masala, Lamb chops with plum and coriander sauce and Bengal Lancers shrimp curry.

"It might sound a little odd taking curry to its birthplace but the festival has had an enthusiastic reception in the past from countries as far afield as America, Bangladesh, Malaysia, Spain, UAE and Eastern Europe," said Mr. Syed Belal Ahmed, Editor, Curry Life Magazine and Director of the Festival.

British Prime Minister Mr. David Cameron in a message of support for the festival said: "Curry, which of course originated in the Indian subcontinent, is now one of the most popular foods in the UK and has become part of the British way of life. Our shared passion for curry, as with cricket and business, only goes to reinforce the close ties between our countries."

Labour party leader Mr. Ed Miliband, praising the role of curry is the British life both on the high street and in homes, said, "Britain's curry sector has not changed our taste buds; it has enabled thousands to build businesses, learn new skills, train apprentices, create jobs, build community and bring people from different cultures together."
