FOOD and cookery company Curry Cuisine will be showing visitors to the Wakefield Festival of Food, Drink and Rhubarb how to cook up an East meets West feast.
The festival, held today and tomorrow, will see Curry Cuisine showcasing products such as Chutnee’s Handmade Rhubarb and Mango Pickle and Ravishing Rhubarb salad dressing.
Company founder Prett Tejura will be hosting a cookery demonstration tomorrow at 2.30pm.
Curry Cuisine uses only locally-sourced forced rhubarb from the ‘Rhubarb Triangle’ to produce its handmade chutneys, pickles and salad dressings in Dewsbury, where the firm is based.
Wakefield’s famous rhubarb has joined the ranks of Europe’s protected foods, giving Yorkshire Forced Rhubarb the same status as Champagne and Parma Ham.
Curry Cuisine is the first non-rhubarb producer in Yorkshire promoting the protected status on its Rhubarb Chilli jam labels.
