Eight of Britain’s top curry chefs will go head to head in a battle of the baltis as part of this year’s British Curry Awards.
It’ll be the first time that the country’s ‘curry Oscars’ have featured a separate competition for individual chefs.

The cook-off will take place at the London School of Hospitality & Tourism – part of the University of West London – just over a week before the British Curry Awards are due to be presented at the Battersea Evolution on Monday 28 November.

Top TV chef James Martin will host the awards night when the Chef of the Year competition winner will be announced along with the restaurants that have been voted the best in each of nine regions of the UK.

The British Curry Awards, now in their seventh year, is the biggest event in the hospitality industry calendar. An audience of 1,600 restaurateurs, VIP guests and celebrities will see the coveted awards handed out.

Organiser Enam Ali said: “The event is now so popular that we’ve had to move it to London’s biggest venue to accommodate all those who want to join in our huge night of celebration.

“It will certainly be a big night for whoever wins our first Chef of the Year competition. Their success will be enjoyed not only by those at the dinner but also by TV audiences worldwide who will have the event beamed to them by our media partners.”

The eight chefs who will compete for the curry crown will be announced shortly along with the names of all the shortlisted restaurants.
