The history of curry (as we know it!)
What we consider to be a curry is of course not really traditional food from the Indian sub-continent. Many famous curry-house recipes are indigenous to Birmingham!
Over the centuries many trading imports to this region, including tomatoes and chillies from Central America via the Portuguese, were adapted into the local diet. A desire for spicy food then developed over the centuries into some of our favourite meals. We have included some of these in our collection, together with some less familiar dishes. And don't forget our vegetarian section!
