The cream of the country’s curry industry is set to do battle, with top chefs going head-to-head for the title of the UK’s King of Spice.

The cook-off for the 2015 Curry Chef Awards, organised by the Bangladeshi Caterers Association, will be staged at Northampton College’s Booth Lane campus on October 29.

The challenge will see 30 chefs from 10 different regions showcase their skills by creating a dish from a ‘mystery basket’ of ingredients in just 45 minutes.

The BBC has teamed up with Northampton College to give 50 young people the chance to secure the job of their dreams thanks to a new digital traineeship programme.

Exciting plans for Northampton College’s re-development of its site at Badby Road West have been approved by Daventry District Council, subject to government endorsement.

The College received the green light on 1 July from the planning committee to go ahead with the sale of some of its land at Badby Road West as part of its mission to raise the funds necessary to deliver a new, state of the art educational facility.
