Curry & Spice Cookery

Saturday 22nd January

Curry comes from the Tamil word ‘kari’ meaning spicy sauce for rice. Ginger, garlic and turmeric have been found to have been combined for a sauce as far back as 4,000 years ago. Today, whether in Asia, India, Africa, The Americas or the Caribbean, it seems the whole world wants to spice-up their food and create their own curry! Now here’s a chance to create your own!
