A birthday treat for curry cook Kamal
12:10pm Friday 13th September 2013 in News
KAMAL’S Indian cookery club helped their head chef celebrate his birthday this week – with a cake rather than a curry.
Kamal Majumdar runs the weekly cookery class in Indian cooking at the Buckhurst Park Community Centre and has around 15 people attend each week.
The 42-year-old has been asked to volunteer at the centre by Labour councillor Abdul Amin in a bid to get more people into the centre and offer a wider range of activities.
Kamal said: “I didn’t want to be a trustee but I said I could volunteer and so after a while I came up with the idea of the cookery school.
“Now about 10 to 15 people come each week and I teach them how to make things – it is non-profit so I only charge for the ingredients. I did charge £3.50 once because we had salmon and that’s more expensive.
“I also give them recipes so they can try them at home and anybody is welcome, we always have space for more.
“It was nice to celebrate my birthday there and I was given a cake and some wine – no-one made a special curry for me.”
Kamal, of the Prinnels, West Swindon, celebrated his birthday with friends and family.
The group meets every Thursday from 11.45pm to 2pm where those wanting to learn more about Indian cooking can turn up and have a go.
