For the love of Curry ‘Taste of Britain Curry Festival’ – The Launch @ ITC Windsor Manor

For all you curry lovers, the ‘Taste of Britain Curry Festival’ promises to bring to you Classic Curries the likes of the Chicken Tikka Masala and infamous Balti recipes. This food festival will be from 19th July to 24th July, at the ITC Windsor Manor’s at the Dublin Bar and The Raj Pavilion. Celebrity and Michelin Star Chef Mark Poynton, one of Uk’s Chef’s and Chef Patron of the award-winning Alimentum restaurant in Cambridge, along with 3 other top Chefs from the UK shall showcase their main feature dishes, which is not to be missed.

To launch the festival, British Deputy High Commissioner, His Excellency Dominic McAllister, and Curry Life Magazine in association with the ITC Windsor Manor clubbed the launch and evening to celebrate the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare. The students from Christ University recited two plays excerpts of Romeo and Juliet and Taming of the Shrew. To those invited we had a treat to the Taste of Britain Curry Festival launch dinner, held at the Pool Side post the play.

Here are some of the images, in order of the event.

Post the small bites, which turned out to be way to many for me, it was time for the launch of the festival, with British Deputy High Commissioner, His Excellency Dominic McAllister, and Curry Life Magazine Director Mr Pasha and the Chef’s @ ITC Windsor Manor, as seen here on stage.

This was followed by two Shakespeare play’s, Sorry I was too busy watching the show and didn’t get any good pictures to share, except just the one.  All the recital by the kids had be famished and we then headed to have a banquet dinner by the pool side, and as you can see there was a huge selection to cater, us food lovers, along with enough Champagne to keep us in high spirits.

The guests got to savour the main dishes of the night, the highlights being the British Chicken Tikka Masala and Balti Curry. I personally loved the texture and the flavour of both the dishes, and had tried every dish there was.

I would describe myself as someone who loves to eat good food and travel, am polished and classy, yet have that little girl spirit in me and my fashion sense is chic which has to be accompanied with bold statement pieces and fresh accessories. I love to get pampered, totally spoil myself, and why not? xoxo Deena Pinto #skinnygirldiairez
