Did you know that National Curry Week is fast approaching?
This year’s events run from 10th to 16th October. National Curry Week originated in 1998 and aims to promote curry while raising funds for various charities concerned primarily with battling hunger, poverty and malnutrition.
During the week people are encouraged to visit their local curry houses or partake of the dish at home, whilst engaging with fun challenges and events, and making donations. Asda have been announced as the lead sponsor and official retailer for the 2016 campaign.
Events arranged include a world record attempt at constructing a tower of poppadums, samosa and poppadum speed eating contests and the Great British Curry Quiz
Some people are so excited by the idea that they challenge themselves to eat a different type of curry each day! While that won’t suit everyone, I would encourage you to take the opportunity to try a new dish – you might surprise yourself!
