The Birmingham Balti has received world wide recognition and
acclaim from the New York Times to the travellers' bible, The Rough
Guide, but more than anything else, it holds a place in the hearts
and minds (and stomachs) of avid baltigoers everywhere.
Going For A Balti traces back the story of this unique dish from
its birth, through its boom years to the present day. This is the
inside track on Birmingham's signature dish, as never told before,
through the eyes of 'Baltiholic' and Champion of all things uniquely
Birmingham, Andy Munro.
Andy Munro was born and bred in the Balti Triangle and, as a
passionate Brummie, has championed the Birmingham Balti to the extent
of working with the restaurants to apply for a European Food
Trademark of Authenticity. Recently semi-retired after ten years
leading the regeneration of Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter, he
continues to be involved in championing his home city.
