From the hearty dishes of Africa, best teamed with spongy injera, to Thailand's fiery coconut-based concoctions, there's no doubt the world loves a good curry. And no matter which country's dishing up your favourite version, you're sure to find it celebrated at the Dandenong Market's first-ever Curry Festival, this Sunday, September 2.

Heating things right up for Father's Day, the marketplace will be paying homage to delicious curry dishes from every corner of the globe. A multicultural lineup of street food vendors are set to take your tastebuds on a worldwide curry tour, each putting its own traditional and new-school spins on the beloved dish. Sample modern Indian creations courtesy of Curry Up Now, let Delicious Mauritius treat you to a taste of island life, or experience Sri Lankan curry creations as imagined by the team at Taka Taka.

Dished up alongside the culinary treats will be a jam-packed program of cultural fun, flying the flag for all those countries that love their curry — catch some African drumming, Mauritian live tunes, Bollywood dancing, and even a sing-a-long Sri Lankan cooking demonstration.
