The Curry Tree
("For those who need & have not")


Official charitable fund for National Curry Week & National Eating Out Week

, According to FAO figures the number of malnourished people worldwide increased by 75 million in 2007 to an estimated total of 925 million.

, The Indian restaurant sector provides around 170 million meals a year, sufficient for nearly 3 meals per person of the UK population.

, One child in the world dies every 5 seconds from hunger related causes.

, 23 million people in Britain eat out regularly ( more than once each year).

Together we can help by taking the pound pledge

If all 23 million of us join the Tree, just think what we could do.

Funds raised will be allocated to deserving causes around poverty, disaster and malnutrition each year by the trustees which include some of the top people in the Indian restaurant sector.

THE FAMILY MEAL: HOME COOKING AT ELBULLI BY FERRAN ADRIÀ
Published in October 2011 Price: £19.95

Published globally in English and multiple languages by Phaidon in October 2011, the new book follows the international bestseller A Day at elBulli: An insight into the ideas, methods and creativity of Ferran Adrià published by Phaidon in 2008. Based on the staff menu at elBulli, The Family Meal is the first book of its kind by Ferran Adrià, and everyone can cook these recipes at home.
Every day at 6.00pm the staff at elBulli stop what they are doing and sit down for 30 minutes to eat a three-course dinner together in the kitchen. This is known at elBulli as the 'family meal' and it consists of simple dishes which are also international. The family meal is so vital to Adrià both for the well-being of his staff and the success of the restaurant, that he plans the daily menus and recipes at the beginning of each season.
Generously illustrated with hundreds of new, especially commissioned photographs, The Family Meal is the book by Ferran Adrià everyone has been asking for. It will be one of the most highly anticipated new cookbook of 2011
