Curry Report: Raffles Hotel Singapore and a Tiffin Curry Extravaganza

What to say?

For those who didn't make the event, well, you know don't you?

You missed an evening that had our 26 members and guests almost groaning from the amount of absolutely delicious food that Chef De Cuisine, Yogesh Arora direct from Raffles Hotel Singapore and his team had created.

Even Frank Newall couldn't get through the sweets; well there were about 20 different selections.

The charming Georgina Williams, Marketing Communications Manager and David Campbell, Director, Global Sales for Swissotel Hotels and Resorts were on hand to welcome our group. They also assured us that we were in for a great evening (they were right).

I could go on about the various dishes, but why make it worse for those who couldn't make it. Sufficient to say that all members and their guests made a point of mentioning to me that they had enjoyed a wonderful evening.

Chef Yogesh spared the time to come and talk to our group, which was very charming of him. In fact near the end of the evening he came and asked me how we though it all had gone, did we enjoy his food? My reply was just a simple "YUM", to which he responded, "Thank you very much".

Georgina had engineered some sensational 'door prizes' that were very much appreciated.

Dennis Jones won the weekend for two at the Swissotel, worth more than $590.

David McGonigal won the dinner for two at the renowned JPB Restaurant.
