A WEEK OF CELEBRATING TASTE -
AN HOMAGE TO SOME GREAT INTERNATIONAL CUISINES

Spanish

Thai

Oriental

Mexican

Italian

International Dining Week is run to celebrate the fantastic diversity of cuisines available to diners in Britain and also to raise funds for the less fortunate in the world. This fun event, which widens its focus this year to include dining in, has a more serious side in recognising the plight of the malnourished and disaster-effected people around the world with all proceeds of fund raising events going to The Curry Tree Charitable Fund. It operates in tandem with National Curry Week in October each year.
"Abandoning his countrymen’s traditional pride in the national cuisine and disdain for English fare, Joël Robuchon admitted that the city’s restaurants are now more innovative than those of Paris.
The 65 year-old, whose restaurants have been awarded a record 25 stars by the revered Michelin guide, also claimed that the biggest variety of world cuisines is to be found in London, after a revolution over the past few decades."(Daily Telegraph Jan. 2011)

RESTAURANTS & CATERING ESTABLISHMENTS - With your help we can link with the millions of people dining out in restaurants all over Britain each year. The event follows on from National Curry Week celebrating Indian cuisine, now in its 18th year, and both events aim to celebrate the amazing diversity of Britain's food and drink industry by having a fun time but also by remembering the less fortunate by helping raise donations which for International Dining Week will focus on hunger and poverty.

THE SPECIAL EVENTS FOR 2016:

2012 was the year we first celebrated BDFOs (British Dishes of Foreign Origin) - dishes whose origins are international but have been adapted to become British specialities and even re-exported. This year we repeat our 'homage' to those dishes but alongside them we celebrate some of the most popular international cuisines enjoyed in Britain.
