Glasgow is in the running to retain curry capital title


Once again Glasgow is hoping to retain its Curry Capital of Britain title.

The competition for 2011 is underway and the public are being asked to nominate their favourite Glasgow restaurant.  The four restaurants with the most votes will go on to represent the city in the curry capital of Britain awards 2011.
The competition sees cities from across the UK go head to head for the national title.
Glasgow is the current Curry Capital of Britain and has won the title in 2002, 2003 and 2006.  It was a close runner-up in 2004, 2005 and 2007.
Lord Provost Bob Winter is determined to see Glasgow hold on to its title and is looking to the public for support. He said:  "This city has many, many wonderful Indian restaurants so there is no shortage of potential winners.
"Glaswegians are renowned for having a passion for curry, so I have no doubt that they will get behind their city once again and nominate their favourite restaurant to represent Glasgow in the competition."
The public has until Friday 26 August 2011 to vote for the Indian restaurants they think have the potential to woo the judges and win it for Glasgow.
The four restaurants that make it to the final will be announced on 5 September.
As part of the competition these restaurants will be invited to hold a special dinner in the lead up to the final with proceeds going to The Curry Tree Charitable Fund to help the poor and undernourished around the world.
The restaurants will also be secretly visited by a team of independent judges before the winning city is announced on 1 November.
The city council is backing the bid to support the restaurants in its quest to retain the accolade of Britain's curry capital.  Letters have been sent to Indian restaurants across the city encouraging their customers to vote.
The council has also made it easier for the public to nominate their favourite restaurant online.  Nomination forms are available to download or complete by clicking here.
