I started the CurryDave thing as a quirky way of advertising my Indian cookery lessons. CurryDave was my nick name when I owned and cooked at Poppadums - an Indian restaurant in the French ski resort of Chamonix where I lived for six years. CurryDave in it’s current form as a food brand began properly when we first launched our products into Scotmid supermarkets in October 2013. The original idea from concept to shop shelf took about three years.
What’s the best piece of business advice you could give?
The currizza is a much more thought out product as Curry Dave has expertly paired Indian flatbread bases with wonderfully flavoured Indian inspired toppings. The range has four topping flavours to choose from including, Chicken Madras, Chicken Korma, Chicken Tikka Masala, and Spinach & Sweet Potato.
I'm a big fan of pizza and was really looking forward to trying out the hybrid offering from CurryDave. We had our currizza across two separate dinners, serving them with spicy potato wedges and salad. The combination of well flavoured topping on a light naan bread base was great, with myself and Nicola loving both the Spinach & Sweet Potato, and Chicken Tikka Masala currizzas.
I was generously given four flatbread pizzas by CurryDave in return for my honest review on the currizzas and in my own honest opinion, i believe that CurryDave has come up with a winner here and at just £3.00 per currizza I will sure to add them to my shopping list in the future.
(If your quick, for a limited period you can pick up the full range at just £2.25 each from online retailer Ocado)
