Curry Fest 2015
2nd Floor Events
461 King Street West
At once an ingredient and a style of cooking with roots in the cultures of southern and south eastern Asia, curry is as complex and varied as the cultures that embrace it. Having become a global phenomenon, curry is now one of the official national dishes of Great Britain attesting to its mass appeal. Our #CurryFest event will explore the wide variations and hyper-local expressions of this popular dish from the Port of Spain to Chennai, from Colombo to Chiang Mai and beyond. It would be impossible to think curry without beer so we're pleased to announce that Curry Fest 2015 is presented by Samuel Adams Boston Lager whose fine beverages will also be available during the event. And if beer ain't your thing, not to worry, Dillon's Distillery will also be producing a signature cocktail for the event.The following vendors will be at #curryfest along with a few surprises...Vendor: Nana Region: Bangkok, ThailandMenu:- Southern Curry Sandwich- Yellow curry fried rice- Curry Ice CreamVendor: Bespoke ButchersRegion: Durban, South AfricaMenu:- Bunny Chow - a South African fast food dish consisting of a hollowed out loaf of bread filled with Lamb curry. -Three Veg slawVendor: Pai RestaurantRegion: Chiang Mai, ThailandMenu: -Ka Nom Jin is from Omkoi Chiang Mai.
