The 11th annual British Curry Awards Final will take place on Monday 30th November 2015 at The Battersea Park, London.
Last year’s British Curry Awards honoured the nation’s finest restaurants in spectacular style. Stars of stage and screen gathered at Battersea Evolution to see the industry’s finest restaurants, takeaways and chefs rewarded for their hard work in continuing to innovate and perfect the nation’s favourite dish.
In a special video message played at the event, Prime Minister David Cameron said: “These awards are a great night for this country. Curry is one of our country’s greatest achievements and one of our most exciting exports too.”
Hosted by TV’s Kate Silverton and Hardeep Singh Kohli, the awards helped showcase Britain’s finest culinary talent.
A phenomenal 206,378 public votes were received, with 2,641 restaurants being nominated. More than 1,600 guests packed into the lavish venue to celebrate the stars of the industry and crown last year’s champions.
Home Secretary Theresa May was last year’s guest of honour and said: “It’s not hard to see why the Prime Minister and others have called these the ‘Curry Oscars’. The British curry industry really is one of Britain’s greatest success stories. Through hard work and innovation, you’ve built a vibrant industry, which generates wealth, promotes growth and employs tens of thousands of people.”
The British Curry Awards was established by British entrepreneur and restaurateur Enam Ali MBE in 2005.
He said, “These awards have changed the public’s perception of British curry and we are getting the recognition for providing truly world class cuisine”.
