A HOTLY tipped curry chef is jetting off to Asia to compete in a food festival.

Sarawar Uddin Khan, master chef for the Kosturi Restaurant in Station Approach, Hayes, has already tasted success in regional curry chef competitions, including the Bromley Curry Chef of the Year. Now he is due to travel to Bangladesh for the fifth International British Fusion Food Festival in November along with six British 'Super Curry Chefs' selected for the occasion.

Mr Khan said: "I'm very excited to be taking part. I have cooked in various competitions, but a showcase event like this will be a real challenge."

The chefs are required to create a menu that fits under the banner of 'British Fusion Food' and design dishes that combine the authentic with contemporary.

Festival director Syed Belal Ahmed said: "For many years British food has been the butt of too many jokes.

"But in recent years there has been a renaissance in the British food industry.

"There has been a tremendous growth of the multi-billion pound curry industry which has restaurants and takeaways in every major British city and town.
