Deadline Extended for Irish Curry Awards

The deadline for submitting nominations for the inaugural Irish Curry Awards has been extended until Sunday 31st August. The hottest and most exciting food competition on the entire island, in association with Cobra Beer and Yelp!, is calling upon curry-lovers throughout Ireland to nominate their favourite local curry houses.

The awards scheme is the brain-child of Belfast-based restaurateur Ali Askir. The owner of SAFA says the time has come to create a specialist Asian awards scheme to recognise the contribution made to Ireland’s food scene by hundreds of Indian, Bangladeshi, Pakistani and other Asian chefs, restaurant workers and managers.

The Irish Curry awards will consist of six categories including Best Chef, Best Young Chef, Best Restaurant, Best Front of House, Best Takeaway and Best Newcomer.

An awards ceremony will be held in Belfast on October 24th.

All profits will go to The Children’s Heartbeat Trust.
