The first of Manchester Food and Drink Festival’s ‘Hub Takeover’ events at Cathedral Gardens has been announced and it’s a corker. Tickets are now on sale for the MFDF Curry Club - an undercover, al fresco Indian street food celebration.
Greater Manchester’s most exciting Indian restaurants are planning to prepare a stunning one-off vegan and vegetarian banquet on Tuesday 21st September. The biggest hitters in South Asian cuisine, including Bundobust, Dishoom, Levenshulme’s Aunty Ji’s, Burnage based Sanskruti and Lily’s of Ashton, will come together for a collaborative and celebratory curry night to remember.
Each restaurant will be cooking their contribution to the banquet on site before serving their own favourite signature dishes, street food style. Guests can expect chaats, Gujariti specialities and amazing plant-based side dishes, in a glorious tribute to the region’s incredible and diverse Indian food scene. Just make sure you leave room for dessert because the team from Lily’s will be bringing along their amazing handmade sweet treats.
Local heroes, The Desi Jockeys, are providing the soundtrack for the gathering with an uplifting mix of Bollywood, Bhangra and British chart sounds.
There is some consolation for those who don’t manage to bag a seat at this MFDF highlight event. Festival headline sponsors, Just Eat, will be offering some special deals from some of the best Indian restaurants across the city on the night to make sure everyone across Greater Manchester can get involved from home.
This is the first event announcement of a series of collaborative hub takeovers happening throughout the festival. The curry club event will start at 7.00pm on Tuesday 21st September and includes a welcome drink and a three-course collaborative menu. Tickets are £40 and can be bought here.
The MFDF Curry Club is part of the Manchester Food and Drink Festival, which is taking place from 16th - 27th September 2021. (Read more here.)
The Festival Hub will be situated on Cathedral Gardens, promising a magnificent celebration of the region’s food and drink and all the talented people that bring it to the table.
