The competition is now closed.

Thank you to all that participated and a big congratulations to Elaine Bromilow, winner of our hamper giveaway. TheSpicyPear will be running another competition soon, stay tuned to our blog and Facebook page. In the meantime, I hope you all enjoy trying out the recipes on this site.

Tomorrow will be the start of the Alchemy Festival, Flavours of India, which will be held at the South Bank centre until 21st April 2013. The festival will celebrate India’s diverse culture, with food stalls, cookery demonstrations, ethnic clothes and dance shows. The aim of this year is to challenge the preconceptions of Indian cuisine. I for one can’t wait to go and sample the Indian street food on offer.

To join in on the celebrations, the Spicy Pear is giving away a mini hamper full of Indian goodies that will help you create the flavours of India at home. Contents include spices, sauces and pappadoms.

For a chance to win, all you need to do is simply like our Facebook page (click here) and leave a comment below stating what your favourite curry is. Please ensure you leave a valid email address with your comment.
