Dream becomes a reality... after 15 years


Around 15 years ago, as a teenager making a takeaway delivery, Allam Shah Ullah walked into the Cutlers Arms pub in Gleadless, South Yorkshire and instantly recognised that it would be a great place for a restaurant. Now that initial dream has become reality with the launch of Cutlers Spice.


Having spent the intervening years working in his family’s restaurants in Sheffield, Chesterfield and Doncaster, Allam never forgot this vision and when the Cutlers became available in 2010 he and dad Noim moved to seal the deal.


For the past 18 months he has combined his night-time duties in the restau- rant with daytime classes at Sheffield College. He has also undertaken work


placements in three other restaurants around the area to broaden his experi- ence, so he can play a key role in the kitchen at Cutlers Spice. For now his parents, Noim and wife Ashfurn Nesa Begum are head chefs, but Allam’s aim is to one day take over. He says, “My ambition is be become head chef but my dad wants me to earn my chef’s jacket.”


The redevelopment of Cutlers Spice has been a major project. Ceilings have been raised or lowered, con- cealed lighting installed, false walls constructed and a new kitchen cre- ated, complete with tandoori oven. The focal point of the interior is a full-length mural of the Taj Mahal. Further devel- opments are planned. These include a new garden area with al fresco dining and a second floor extension.


Curry night helps cancer cause


A curry night held for a charity which helped a Newport youngster during his fight with cancer has raised more than £800. Jewel Balti arranged the night, with 13-year old Corris Davies requesting the money go to Welsh cancer charity LATCH.


The restaurant arranged the fund- raiser as it is the family’s local curry house. Corris suffers with a Ewing’s sarcoma tumour in his right leg. He is now going through chemotherapy at the Children’s Hospital for Wales in Cardiff.
