December - Paradise Again!

The table is booked!  Our last meeting of the year takes place in Wednesday 10th in Petersfield, and will be a return to Paradise who looked after us so well in September and October.  Aperitifs will be taken at the Old Drum from 19:30, and then dinner will be at Paradise Balti at 20:30.

Please let us know either by e-mail or through the feedback page of the website if you expect to make it.  This will help us adjust the booking up or down depending on your plans.  

Christmas is coming;  our Amazon shop has lots of recommendations, including books on Indian food, essential pub and restaurant guides, Kindle readers and books, real books, kitchen gear, and much more.  If you feel the urge to use it to buy presents, we should earn a little commission to boost the club kitty.  And the kitty buys beer!

Looking forward to a great evening on Wednesday 10th!

November meeting - Madhuban, Liss - Wed 12th

The table is booked, and after two meetings in Petersfield, we'll go to Liss for our November meeting.  The Madhuban is a huge favourite with our members and renowned for excellent food and a warm welcome.  Aperitifs will be at the Spread Eagle on Farnham Road from about 19:30 and then we'll make our way to the restaurant for dinner at 20:30.

Members will receive this notice by e-mail and are asked please to let us know as soon as possible yes, no or maybe - if the demand is big, we don't want to be short of places on the night.  If you prefer, please use the feedback page on the web site to let us know.

Christmas is coming, and our Amazon shop  has some suggestions for books about Indian food, 2015 eating and drinking guides, and lots of the usual Amazon goodies.  Every purchase can help earn a little for the Curry Club kitty, and as we no longer have a sponsor for the web site, it all helps.

Looking forward to a great evening and some fine food on Wednesday 12th!

October meeting - Paradise again!

The table is booked!  Paradise Balti looks forward to welcoming us again, on Wednesday 8th October; dinner is at 20:30, and aperitifs will be taken in the Old Drum from about 19:30.  John and Fiona will again be the  organisers on the evening, as your webmaster will be elsewhere.

Sadly the turnout in September was low in number with some having to cancel late in the day.  Nonetheless, those that made it though the food was great and the starters excellent.  Those who made it on the evening thought it so good that the rest of the Curry Club should be given the chance again in October. 

Members will receive the usual e-mail so please respond to that or use the feedback page on the web site to let us have numbers.  Have a great evening!

September meeting - Paradise Balti, Petersfield

The table is booked!  Paradise Balti looks forward to welcoming us on Wednesday 10th September; dinner is at 20:30, and aperitifs will be taken in the Old Drum from about 19:30.  John and Fiona will be the  organisers on the evening, as your webmaster will be otherwise engaged. 

We had a great meeting in August, when we visited the Gurkha Durbar in Grayshott.  The turnout was a record for August and the food proved it a good choice of venue.  The mixed starters were delicious, and the traditional lamb and chicken curries were absolutely superb.  In the end, despite a great turnout, there was more than we could eat, and one lucky member took home a doggy bag that sustained him for several days while his wife was away 'Up North'.  We noticed that the restaurant didn't offer papadums.  Too often, these do just enough to blunt the appetite, which can be a terrible shame.  Shock horror, with so much excellent food available, we didn't need them. A great time was had by all. 

Members will receive the usual e-mail so please respond to that or use the feedback page on the web site to let us have numbers.  Have a great evening!

August meeting - Grayshott - Gurkha Durbar

The table is booked!  After two meetings in Petersfield, we return to Grayshott on Wednesday 13th August, this time to the Gurkha Durbar.  I've eaten there several times recently and really enjoyed the food and the welcome on each occasion.  We'll meet for aperitifs at the Fox and Pelican at about 19:30; if the weather's good, we can enjoy a drink or two outside.  Dinner is booked for 20:30 - the restaurant is just 100 yards away. 

Members will receive an e-mail notice, so  please let me know whether or not you expect to be there.  This is the holiday season, so absences won't be a big surprise, but we still need to give the restaurant a decent idea of the number expected.  Please reply to the e-mail as soon as possible or use the response form on our web site.

Looking forward to a great evening on 13th, and for those taking holidays, hope the weather is just as you like it.
