MasterChef coming to Curryfest

THINGS will be even hotter than normal at next year's Woolgoolga Curryfest with Australia's newly crowned King of Curry coming to town.

Masterchef finalist Jimmy Seervai will be the celebrity cook at the event next April where he'll also be hosting cooking demonstrations.

“Growing up in an Indian shop with all these crazy ingredients around me taught me a very different language from a very young age,” Mr Seervai said.

“I learnt early on that food with spice is the only food for me.

“After being in the Masterchef competition, I found my passion to cook would not remain just a pastime but something that I wanted to share and make available to others who love to cook with spice.”

The 2011 Curryfest will again be at the Woolgoolga Reserve.

The event will have extended opening hours and will include an eclectic line up of world music, international taste sensations and a kids adventure playground.

Already Curryfest has created a buzz with recent exposure in Sydney mainstream media and an article in the Virgin Blue inflight magazine.

Event manager Kelvin Harris said many artists are keen to get involved in the extravaganza.

“We have a new committee and it is getting proactive with lots of vision, lots of ideas and we want to build Curryfest up,” Mr Harris said.
