Well over 2,500 nominations have flooded in for the inaugural Bradford curry awards launched to find the best of the best and celebrate the industry’s contribution to the local economy, heritage and culture.
Bradford has won the national title of Curry Capital of Britain for an impressive six consecutive years, still holds the current title, and boasts more than 200 curry establishments all contributing to that virtually unrivaled reputation.
The brand new Bradford Curry Awards have been organised for the first time this year, providing a platform to showcase the best of the local industry. They aim to recognise not just the city’s top chefs but also all those who work hard behind the scenes to create the city’s nationally-acclaimed culinary reputation.
Curry lovers from across the district were invited to nominate their favourite eateries – with around 80 names put forward – and a shortlist has now been announced of the top five establishments which received the most nominations in each of eight categories across the industry.
After the mammoth task of counting and verifying the close-run nominations was completed by auditors Smith & Munir, the shortlist can be revealed as follows:
