For 30 years Madhur Jaffrey has presented the curries of her homeland of India. In this major new series, the Queen of Curry returns to Britain to explore the Curry Nation there today. She visits restaurants that are creating exciting new dishes, places of worship where traditional curries are served daily, and the homes of British South Asians, where she uncovers their different and varied culinary cultures.
As she travels the country, Madhur discovers that although traditional recipes are to be found everywhere, new British versions of classic dishes are also emerging.
Kicking-off her road trip through the Great British Curry Nation, Madhur Jaffrey discovers how Indian food has been both standardised and absorbed into UK pub culture, but also given exciting new flavours and approaches.
