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.
