King’s Duck Curry competition set for Stadium on Sunday
The National Stadium Parking Lot will be transformed to an area of culinary delight on Sunday (November 25) when King’s Jewellery World stages the 18th annual Ducky Curry competition from 14:00h.
Coordinator Looknauth ‘King’ Persaud said the event would be different from the previous competitions, as it would now entail rivalries in inter-village competition, a change from the regular inter-county showdown.
Persaud said competitors would be judged on taste, texture and aroma, and they would be vying for prizes approximately $750,000 in cash and trophies.
Already registered for the one-day event are participants from Georgetown, Berbice, Essequibo, East Bank Demerara and East Coast Demerara.
According to Persaud, the judging panel would consist of prominent persons from Guyana, Trinidad and Tobago and New York.
Aside from the Duck Curry competition, there will live performances from former Chutney King Raymond Ramnarine of world renowned Dil-E-Nadan Band, local dancehall artiste Timeka Marshall and Stitchie One Man Band.
There will also live tassa drumming by Dubraj Tassa Group and others, while a Disc Jockey would be on site all day entertaining patrons.
The event is a collaborative effort of King’s Jewellery World, the Rotary Club of Georgetown and main sponsors Banks DIH Limited.
Other partners onboard are E-Networks, Massy Gas Products, Star Party Rentals, Cloud 9, Bistro Café, GTT, SantaCruz, WJ Enterprise and Impressions. More information on the event can be had from Brian (644-6614), King (600-0735) and Shameer (624-1102).
