Yorkshire’s Curry Cuisine going national
West Yorkshire’s Curry Cuisine Cookery School has gone from strength to strength, with its products selling in national giants ASDA, Sainsbury’s and up-market Harvey Nichols.
Initially a start up cookery school begun in 2007 by Prett Tejura after she was made redundant from a senior finance positon, the firm has expanded into manufacturing in 2009 with the addition of Prett’s husband to the business.
Spice ranges developed with the introduction of their own fusion Chutneys and Pickles under a sub-brand, Chutnee’s Handmade.
Curry Cuisine still maintains the successful cookery school arm of the business, with a corporate course which has brought in high profile clients including HSBC and Aviva.
Prett has also established the first Indian Masterclass at Swinton Park Hotel near Ripon, North Yorkshire, which was
This year saw the biggest achievement with the launch of a two stand alone but interlinked websites for the Cookery School and the retail arm.
In addition to this, Prett is bringing out a cookery book, ‘Family Secrets’ to add to the Curry Cuisine brand.
Prett commented: “It was my mother who inspired me to cook. Ours was a traditional household. I am the fourth child of 5 siblings and everyone was expected to carry out chores and help around the house.
“My earliest memories are of peeling the skin off garlic cloves and ginger and to this day I only need to smell a hint of either of these two distinctive flavours to bring a smile to my face as happy family memories come flooding back.
“I hope my new book will motivate families to cook together, just as I do and share the joys and spice smells of real Indian food.”
