The voting count from the Hot Hot Curry Night is completed – there was a huge return of voting slips and the scores were very high!
We were lucky enough to enjoy 19 curries with lots of imaginative extras, from parsnip bhajis to yorkshire puds. The rice pudding dessert was new this year and very popular. The top eight scores were so close that this year there are FIVE prizes! The results are:
FIRST: Nick Humble – Vegetable Balti (Number 10).
SECOND: Lynne Hands – Lamb Rogan Josh (Number 19)
THIRD: Mandy Wright – Thai Chicken Curry (Number 18)
