The true legend of the CC has never been told………..until now.

In 2005, the official monthly curry timetable was introduced. Each and every curry Jedi* takes his turn to arrange a curry at the venue of his choice.
(* The curry ‘Jedi’ is the sacred name given to the more distinguished curry eater. ‘Padawan’ and 'youngling’ are the names given to our trainee Curry Council Members)
