UK 15th National Curry Week

The 15th National Curry Week 8-14th October 2012 will not only celebrate the fantastic curry houses all over Britain but also acknowledge the influence curry has had on other ethnic cuisines such as Thai, Chinese, Caribbean, Japanese, South African and more.

A recent survey suggested that a massive 87% of Brits enjoy curry at home or in a restaurant each year and 40% go for their "hit" at least once a week. But it is not just Britain that has the curry habit. In Japan their own special curry is one of the nation's favourite dishes and Germany even has a museum as an homage to currywurst. 20 years ago the number of curry restaurants in America was a fraction of the number in Britain despite the huge difference in geographical size but now the curry craze has caught on their as well.

S&A Foods with Asda and Patak's will once again head the sponsorship for the week enabling curry fans to enjoy their favourite food as much at home as they do in curry houses. A team of Curry Ambassadors has been organised around the country to spread the word and "Team Curry", consisting of some of the best Asian restaurants in the country, has been created to offer the perfect shop window for fans to try curry at its best.

The Curry Capital of Britain element of the event has already started in the 20 competing cities around the country and 2011 title holders Bradford have arranged a special pop-up restaurant day to launch their bid with proceeds going to The Curry Tree Charitable Fund. Last year this competition received well over a quarter of a million votes from around the country.

"We have one or two surprises to come that will be announced in due course," commented organiser Peter Grove of The Federation of Specialist Restaurants, "and we will ensure this year's event is the most exciting ever."
