The curry industry professionals and foodies were gathered at the Curry Life Awards 2021 and Gala Dinner at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London recently. Curry Life Magazine, which is widely recognised as the most authoritative voice of the Bangladeshi restaurants, organised the awards ceremony.
The programme started with a somber mode by remembering Covid-19 loss and fallen heroes during the pandemic at the UK Curry Houses, the vast majority of which are run and operated by Bangladeshi people.
More than 600 guests attended the award ceremony, hosted by veteran journalist and broadcaster Angela Rippon and Mike Bushell, unveiled awards winners for the following categories: Best Editor’s Choice of the year, Best Curry Chefs of the year, Best Curry Restaurants of the year, Best Curry Takeaways of the year, Best Customer’s Choice of the year and Best Curry House Supplier of the year.
The Editor of Curry Life Media Group, Syed Belal Ahmed said, “Over the years we have been staging the awards, we have seen a major stepping up of standards and quality being offered to customers to the point where several restaurants are in a position to challenge for accolades such as Michelin stars.”
Other guests at the event included Gagan Mohindra MP, Aaron Bell MP, Greg Smith, Charlotte Nichols MP, Wes Streeting MP, Celebrity Chefs Atul Kochhar, Dominic Chapman and Mridula Baljekar.
