Indian Food Festival is a big hit for local community

The tickets for the much-awaited Indian Food festival which was held on the 7th October at the Boreham Village Hall were sold out way before the deadline. There were 15 stalls serving a variety of Indian delicacies from 12 different Indian states. From five different kinds of Biriyani to Pani puri to different kinds of Indian Summer drinks including Mango Lassi, Elaneer Payasam, there was such a wide and varied number of dishes to tickle everyone’s taste buds. The crowd came in large numbers despite the heavy rain that evening. The chief guest at the event Deputy Mayor Councillor Jon De Vries tasted the food at the stalls and appreciated the effort that had gone into arranging such an event which he said was great for the local community as it celebrates different cultures. He also went on to say that it was wonderful that so many people turned up at the event and called on the local newspapers to cover such events which bring people from so many cultures together.

One of the biggest reasons for the tremendous success of the event was the passion and effort put in by the stall owners to make such great tasting dishes. All dishes were home-cooked food by members of the Chelmsford Indian Association. The people who attended the event also took take-aways, so much so that all the stalls were completely sold out. Many stall owners were raising funds for many different British and Indian charities. Due to the popularity of the event which is happening for the second consecutive year, the organisers vowed to find a much bigger venue next time around so there could be more stalls and many more people can be accommodated.

The next event of the Chelmsford Indian Association is the Diwali Celebrations on the 4th of November 2017 at the Marconi Social Club. For tickets for this extremely popular event please visit the Chelmsford Indian Association Facebook page or email
