THE gloves are coming off next week as Brick Lane chefs go head-to-head in a curry cook-off.

The Best Curry Competition will kick-off next Wednesday in Britain's `curry capital' when chefs from across the area will battle it out for the winning title of Chef of the Year: Banglatown '09.

They will prepare and cook their dishes in an outdoor kitchen for food connoisseurs and passers-by to taste, before a winner is picked from a panel of judges.

The competition is taking place in the run-up to the two-week Brick Lane Curry Festival which will get underway on Sunday September 27.

Owners of the curry houses are expecting around 60,000 visitors on the opening day of the annual event as Brick Lane and Osbourne Street are closed off and filled with stalls, entertainers, live music and DJs.
