A DEWSBURY firm running Indian cookery courses and supplying pickles and spices aims to tickle the tastebuds of visitors to a major food fair.

Curry Cuisine is among 25 regional food producers taking part in the four-day event, which kicks off on Thursday and is being run alongside the Harrogate Spring Flower Show at the town’s Great Yorkshire Showground.

The firm, run by Kenyan-born Prett Tejura, provides cookery courses and outside catering as well as selling Indian pickles and chutneys.

Prett, whose background stems from Gujarat, India, said: “I have always had a passion for cooking.

“Over the past 10 years or so, I have been collecting recipes from my family to pass down to my three children.

“The idea for Curry Cuisine came after several friends had asked me to teach them how to cook traditional Indian dishes.”

The food market has been organised by the Regional Food Group under its deliciouslyorkshire branding campaign and features producers of foodstuffs ranging from pork pies, cakes and loaves to preserves, chocolates and cheeses.
