Wamboin Curry Recipes
With a little more organisation, we're hoping to build on our small collection of recipes with those for the creations presented at this year's event. If you would like to submit your recipe, and all curry cooks on the night are encouraged to do so, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will compile the contributions and advise interested parties on how we plan to distribute the product in due course. Of course, if your creation needs to maintain a degree of secrecy in the build-up to the event, we understand, but please consider submitting your magic formula after it has received the adulation of the assembled masses.
