Jonathan was thrilled to be asked to come on board as one of the judges and has thoroughly enjoyed his experience visiting some of Leicester’s finest curry establishments:

“Tasting curries sounded easy but it’s been really tough! I have been spoilt with the richness and diversity of Leicester and Leicestershire’s fine south Asian cuisine. The flavours, smells and appearance of what I’ve tasted and the sense of pride that’s gone into each dish has exceeded all my expectations.”

Winners of the Leicester Curry Awards 2019 will be revealed at the red-carpet event on Monday 8 April.
