It seems as if Birmingham has, yet again, decided its 'curry' reputation is no longer important. Last year's bid for 'Capital For Curry' was a last minute debacle with a last minute bid being rushed in with the inevitable ignominious result. This year invites have gone out early from the organisers and proposals to involve Colleges and the local community were put to the local media, Marketing Birmingham and University College Birmingham. The proposals included a Home Cooked Recipe Competition, a Cook Off involving Restaurants, Use of Traditional but not widely known Asian Vegetables by Restaurants in a Charity Week, A Birmingham Curry Guide and A Best Suburban Restaurant for each City Suburb.

Unfortunately Marketing Birmingham response was that they had no financial resources to contribute,the local media said that it would conflict with their own proposed generic 'Best Restaurant' feature and the UCB failed to respond after an initial expression of interest. I wonder what the Urdu expression is for 'C'est La Vie'?'
