Welcome to Britain’s Biggest Curry Party!

Cook a Curry for a Cure!

Britain’s Biggest Curry Party ran from  17th – 25th October 2014!

 If you’ve been keeping an eye on the News page, you’ll know we’ve been having lots of fun for BBCP this year…and with our  auction still to take place, there’s more fun to come!

And if you couldn’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’re not sure your culinary skills are quite up to speed,  you can watch and learn from the great Geeta Samtani in the video above as she prepares a simple but delicious curry .

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! Tharavadu Restaurant in Leeds have donated to us ‘Dinner for Two with a bottle of wine’ which you can ENJOY by bidding in our auction here. Closing date 8th December. Could be the perfect Christmas present!

Bangladesh Caterers’ Association (BCA)

We are delighted this year that the Bangladesh Caterers’ Association supported BBCP. A number of their members, restaurants and takeaways, ran activities throughout BBCP. Click onto the ‘ News’ page to see their details. Our warmest thanks to them all. We look forward to working with them on more events in the future.

Southampton City College

The Catering and Hospitality Students at Southampton City College definitely spiced things up! They served a special two course curry meal in their lovely Aspire Restaurant on Wednesday 22nd October from 12 noon. There was such demand for the BBCP lunch that they were fully booked days ahead and so decided to do takeaway meals for busy staff members as well. Diners and other visitors to the College were greeted by the sight of a 6ft inflatable Whale dressed in a chef’s hat (fortunately he wasn’t helping in the kitchen!) and were invited to Choose the Name of the Whale for 50p a go! They raised a lovely £237.00! Winner of the Choose the Whale competition was Lyn Jones who was delighted to receive a voucher for a meal for 2 at the Aspire Restaurant and a delicious Curry Hamper from Geeta’s.  We are greatly looking forward to working with the Catering and Hospitality Students and Tutors on another special event in Spring next year!

And, although BBCP 2014 is technically over, if any other Colleges out there would like to run a similar event, it’s never too late. Any time can be curry party time! 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.
