This 216 page work produced in full colour is the culmination of three years research. As well as exploring the factual historical background to the phenomenon described as 'Britain's National Dish', the book looks at urban legends surrounding curry and the people, restaurants, companies, celebrities and characters that have been the backdrop to a modern multi-billion pound industry.

What people have said about it so far....

"The 'Indian' restaurant in Britain has a proud heritage and one that has made it part of the fabric of the British way of life. The story is one of hard work, commitment and more than a little humour and I commend this work to the reader as a celebration of all that has been achieved in our industry thus far." Rajesh Suri - General Manager, Tamarind Restaurant, Mayfair, London W1 (The only Michelin starred Indian restaurant in UK)

"There are many books in the market today about Indian curry but here is a new one with a difference" Amit Roy, The Telegraph

"We have historians Peter & Colleen Grove, our foremost experts on Indian restaurants to thank for discovering the information on Sake Dean Mahomed - first man of curry." Tim Joiner, Mayor of Westminster City Council on unveiling a plaque marking the site of Britain's first Indian restaurant
