Welcome to Britain’s Biggest Curry Party!
Cook a Curry for a Cure!
Britain’s Biggest Curry Party takes place from 17th – 25th October 2014!
During that time, we hope many of you up and down the country, in homes, schools and colleges, workplaces or community centres, will get together with friends and family to share a curry, have fun, and raise money for the James Whale Fund for Kidney Cancer at the same time. We have some great plans shaping up so please keep an eye on the News page to see what we’re doing and where we’re doing it to celebrate BBCP this year!
If you can’t fit a curry meal in during that week, you can still hold a Curry Party for us whenever it’s convenient for you. Please send any donations collected into JWF by cheque. (See details on our donations page) And remember, as far as we’re concerned, a curry party can be anything from two people sharing a plate of pappadums and a jar of chutney to fifty people cooking a curry in a sports hall! If you want to get some practice in before BBCP week, we have some delicious recipes on the site prepared by the great Geeta Samtani.
BID FOR A DINNER FOR TWO WITH A BOTTLE OF WINE AND SUPPORT KIDNEY CANCER COMMUNITY!
And if you decide you aren’t able to cook a curry yourself as you are not likely to enter Masterchef, we have a treat for you! Cafe Spice Namaste in London, owned by internationally acclaimed Chef, Cyrus Todiwala, and Tharavadu Restaurant in Leeds have donated to us ‘Dinner for Two with a bottle of wine’ which you can ENJOY by bidding in our silent auction. Download the form here: Silent auction! More details can be found here.

We are delighted that the Bangladesh Caterers’ Association is supporting BBCP. A number of their members, restaurants and takeaways, are running activities throughout BBCP. Click onto the ‘ News’ page to see their details. (and more still to be confirmed). Our warmest thanks to them all.
Southampton City College
The Catering and Hospitality Students at Southampton City College are definitely spicing up their course! They will be serving a special two course curry meal in their lovely Aspire Restaurant on Wednesday 22nd October from 12 noon. It’s open to the public as well as staff and students. See full details on the ‘News‘ page. You might also find a Whale waiting to meet you there! For 50p a go, you can enter the Choose the Name of the Whale Competition and win lunch or dinner in their restaurant and a hamper of delicious curry products from Geeta’s. The great Geeta Samtani herself has done a special video lesson for the students which they – and others – will be able to refer to throughout the year. We’ll be posting it up shortly so keep checking back! If any other Colleges out there want to take part in BBCP, it’s not too late. We have lots of ideas for ways in which you can get involved and we’ll be on hand to help you as much as we can.
