Restaurant’s signature dish earns place in national cookery book
April 23, 2012
Cambridge’s Saffron Brasserie, nominated by MP Julian Huppert to compete for the title of the country’s best Asian restaurant, is to have its signature dish included in a recipe book to mark the competition.
The restaurant, which serves Indian and Bangladeshi cuisine in Hills Road, has chosen Chicken Ghassi for the book which will be launched by the Tiffin Club, a cross-party group of Members of Parliament.
The dish is cooked with coconut milk, garlic, chilli, ginger and an array of spices and served with rice or rosti.
It will feature in the Tiffin Cookery Book to celebrate the 500 nominations the Tiffin Cup competition has received over the last seven years.
The competition raises money for charity and this year it is supporting World Vision which aims to combat poverty and its causes especially as they affect children across the world.
Julian said: “I am delighted that the Saffron Brasserie’s signature dish is going to be included in this book so that people across the country can cook this meal.
“Not only are we putting Cambridge on the map for excellent Asian food but we are also helping to raise money for a worthwhile charity at the same time.”
