Scottish Curry Awards 2012: The Results


Earlier this week, the fifth annual Scottish Curry Awards took place at the Thistle Hotel in Glasgow, before an audience comprised of the creme de la creme of the nation's curry scene. After attending in all their finery for the last three years, the Tramps were unable to make an appearance in 2012 (one was working hard, the other quietly putting themselves back together after a hectic RockNess). But thanks to the reporting efforts of STV's Laura Piper and Hector at the Curry-Heute blog, they were able to get a flavour of how things went down. (To hear what the Tramps thought of the shortlist before the actual awards, just listen to the news section of our most recent Keep Calm And Curry On podcast.)
