Inaugural British Curry Day to celebrate end of lockdown
The inaugural British Curry Day will be taking place on the day lockdown 2.0 is scheduled to end early next month.
Organised by Spice Business Magazine, the big day will celebrate the easing of lockdown on Thursday 3rd December and help support this country’s curry industry.
While commemorating the early ‘curry pioneers’, British Curry Day will also be encouraging people to eat out and order takeaways in accordance with government regulations.
The theme of this year’s British Curry Day, that is set to become an annual fixture in the culinary calendar, is ‘Back the Bhaji’ which involves restaurants donating to charities for every curry sold.
Enam Ali, publisher of Spice Business and the man behind the prestigious British Curry Awards, said: “We have chosen ‘Back The Bhaji’ as this year’s theme because this humble starter, eaten by the million in Britain each week, with its origins in our native onion rings, is symbolic of our unique curry culture.”
For those wishing to be involved with British Curry Day, with people encouraged to use hashtags #BritishCurryDay and #BackTheBhaji on the day, details are available on: www.britishcurryday.org.
