The Beeb Website recently featured ‘Birmingham ..What’s to Love’ in honour of the City’s successful Commonwealth Games bid. In 60 seconds they whistled through everything from Canals to Heavy Metal. They also covered Brum’s foodie connections including Cadbury’s, HP Sauce and Birds Custard. Unfortunately all three are now owned by multi nationals but Balti (as the fourth food featured) saved the day. To paraphrase a current footie chant … ‘Balti … it’s one of the City’s own!’
Incidentally, it was good to see the BBC feature what looks like a ‘proper’ pressed steel balti bowl which the media normally get horribly wrong when depicting the City’s favourite dish..
