Curry crusader to host ‘Indian Summer’ workshop


As part of the Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival, Pat Chapman, author of 36 books including The Curry Bible and the Cobra Good Curry Guide and founder of the Curry Club, is coming to Framlingham Technology Centre for its forthcoming ‘Indian Summer’ program of events on October 8th and 9th. First he will be presenting ‘The Business of Food’ at the Centre, focus- ing on bringing entrepreneurs and enterprising people together, at which Pat will prepare an Indian finger buffet himself.


Then Pat will host a Curry Workshop on October 9th, an interactive demon- stration of a full Indian main course curry with accompaniments. Two


popular chicken dishes will be cre- ated along with pullao rice, chu- patti bread, Chana Chat salad, and tandoori mint raita. Although this is not a hands-on course, Pat may call on willing assistants from the audience to learn new techniques and everyone will receive a tasting plate of all dishes. Following the ‘Curry Workshop’ Pat will take an hour from cooking and demonstra- tions for a book signing between 2.30 and 3.30pm. As evening rolls around, the local Crown Hotel sets its chefs to work tasked with laying on an Indian Feast Night.


Weymouth restaurant fined for food hygiene standards


A Weymouth restaurant where raw meat was stored in buckets on the floor and insects were found in the vegetable store has been fined £5,000 for health and safety breaches. Weymouth and Portland Borough Council also ordered that the restaurant should be closed for one day while a deep clean of the premises took place.


The Weymouth Tandoori, run by Jamal Uddin, 53, was found to have committed the offence and magistrates were told the business had a history of poor com- pliance with food hygiene requirements. The court heard however that the res- taurant is now open again and compliant with regulations.


Mr Uddin was reported to be considering an appeal against the level of the fines imposed on the basis that they were ‘dis- proportionate’ to the offence.
