Purple basil curry, spicy curry tuna avocado poke, street chicken tacos topped with ginger and sweet potato puree and Thai pineapple fried rice are some of the options available at the 2017 Curry Clash on Nov. 1.
The annual event, presented by the Asian Community Center of Lincoln, allows local chefs, both pro and amateur, to showcase dishes that showcase the versatile spice. Those who purchase tickets to the nonprofit’s event get to try them all and cast ballots for their favorites.
The Curry Clash also features a silent auction, which includes numerous packages for foodies such as cooking classes and restaurant gift cards.
Participants in this year’s Curry Clash include pros representing Honest Abe’s, Bahnwich Cafe, Ivanna Cone, Sweet Minou chocolates and Billy’s Restaurant, among others. There also will be Sudanese, Vietnamese and Thai cuisine prepared by friends and staff of the Asian Center.
