Win a night of spice at Hitchin Priory

HOW do you fancy a tasty dinner for four cooked by a top local chef at Hitchin Priory?

Your chef for the night will be Hitchin-based Bipin Patel who has developed a unique Indian all-fresh curry paste to enable you to create a simple healthy but flavoursome curry at home in minutes.

The pastes are made from all-natural ingredients – no artificial colourings or flavourings, no additives or preservatives, gluten free and low in fat – just add your favourite vegetarian or meat ingredient for a quick and healthy way to create a fantastic truly authentic curry.

To experience this new and innovative curry, the first prize will see Bipin cook a delicious three-course meal for four people using his secret all-fresh all-natural ingredients.

Not only is this a chance to be spoilt with your own dedicated premier chef, you will also be dining in some of Hitchin’s finest surroundings.

Hitchin Priory is a charming 14th century building, set in 19 acres of magnificent gardens and parkland nestling on the River Hiz.

Steeped in history dating back to 1317, Hitchin Priory was later patronised by Henry VIII, and many original features remain, including cloisters, Monks Walk with its original beams, and large banqueting halls with grand fireplaces. Truly a stunning setting for your prize.
