The heat is on... to have Sheffield named as the Curry Capital of Britain 2013.
Chefs and owners from four Sheffield curry houses - who are representing the city in the national competition - gathered with Lord Mayor Coun Vickie Priestley on the Town Hall steps to urge the city’s lovers of good Indian food to vote.
Viraaj on Chesterfield Road in Woodseats, Cutlers Spice on Leighton Road in Gleadless, Ashoka on Ecclesall Road, and Butlers Balti on the Broad Lane roundabout are all flying the flag for the city.
Sufi Miah, manager of Viraaj, said: “We are urging everyone who loves curry in Sheffield to register their vote.”
Log on to www.currycapitalofbritain.org.uk before this Friday to vote.
