Doncaster College is set to spice up its speciality evenings with the introduction of a new Curry Club on 5 June. The event, staged at the College’s own Waterfront Restaurant, will bring a taste of regional India to the town and is hosted by Prett Tejura, founder of award-winning Yorkshire food and cookery company, Curry Cuisine.

Diners will enjoy a Bengal and Assam themed demo and dine evening with Prett, assisted by College hospitality and catering students, who will support her in the kitchen and front of house. The Waterfront Restaurant provides a real world working environment for students and is also open to the local community. The event is priced at £20pp and will be an informal, intimate and fun evening of curry and good company.

A finalist in the British Cookery School Awards, the Curry Cuisine Cookery School, was established by passionate home cook Prett in 2007. Prett was inspired by her Indian heritage and encouraged by her mother who shared the secrets of her culinary expertise from an early age. Cooking has always been a way of life for Prett and for many years the family developed recipes with rich, aromatic flavours and explored together the unique cuisine of the diverse regions of India.

The school started with personalised cookery, providing one to one lessons at Prett’s own home and has since developed to offer a full calendar of courses ranging from demonstrations and taster evenings to Curry Clubs and Indian Cookery Masterclasses. The business has also now diversified into making its own handcrafted chutneys, spice mixes, dessert sauces and spice infused jams. Guests can enjoy the products at the event.
Curry Club evenings teach customers how to create real dishes from distinct regional areas of India and beyond, from Northern India, Goa, Gujarat, Southern Indian and Eastern India to Sri Lanka, Thai and more. Diners will spend a relaxing, fun evening learning about authentic Indian cuisine and will relish an enthralling and enlightening cookery demonstration, before sitting down to taste a delicious, informal
2 course meal.

Ian Allgood, Waterfront Restaurant business manager and trainer, said: “The UK’s love affair with Indian food shows no sign of abating and with such a diverse array of wonderful dishes available, we are delighted to welcome Prett to show us a variety of authentic regional dishes for our guests to enjoy and to share in the culinary spicy secrets of cooking real Indian food. We are also pleased that our hospitality and catering students get to experience first hand this unique style of Indian cookery.”

Prett Tejura, Curry Cuisine said: “We are on a mission at Curry Cuisine to encourage people to tantalise their 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. We look forward to working with the College team and students to serve up a taste of regional India.”
