Dewsbury and Tingley based food and cookery company, Curry Cuisine, will bring a taste of regional India to this year’s Dales Festival of Food and Drink (May 4-6) held in the heart of Wensleydale to encourage foodies to ditch tiresome tikkas and boring baltis for dishes from more diverse areas of India. Food lovers visiting the festival will be able to experience authentic Indian cuisine created traditionally by company founder, Prett Tejura.
As well as providing outside ‘street food’ catering for the event, Curry Cuisine will also showcase its award-winning range of premium, traditionally handcrafted chutneys and pickles; Scrummees fruit sauces and its newly launched jazzed up jam range ““ Scrummees jams, including Raspberry and Black Pepper, Plum and Cinnamon, Kiwi and Lime and Strawberry and Cardamon varieties. These spice infused jams have been developed to add a new twist to the breakfast condiment sector, as well as being ideal for cooking.
Prett Tejura will also be joining local chefs in the Theatre Marquee (Sunday 5 May, 2pm) providing tuition and a live cookery demonstration on how to create real Indian food from regions such as Goan, Keralan and Northern India
Prett Tejura said: “It’s our mission to encourage foodies to tantalise the tastebuds, discover the delights of different regions of India and to dispel the myth that cooking authentic Indian food is difficult, whilst at the same time encouraging curry lovers to try something different.”
Curry Cuisine has diversified from its origins as a cookery school to create its own range of handmade chutneys, pickles, spice mixes, dessert sauces and jams for both the Indian and mainstream markets. Its products can be found in up market stores such as Fodder food hall, food and farm shops such as Fodder in Harrogate and supermarkets, including nationally in ASDA and regionally in Sainsbury’s.
