Chintal Kakaya of Chin's Kitchen runs an Indian bakery business, specialising in making handmade nankhatai (spiced Indian shortbread) using a blend of spices to create modern and classic flavours. Chintal is from Mombasa, Kenya and moved to the UK at a very young age. As a child age was surrounded by a close knit community who shared the same passion for food. Following in her mother's footsteps she started creating a range of cakes, bakes and desserts.
Chintal hosted her first supper club in aid of Curry for Change in 2015 raising vital funds to change lives. In November 2015 she baked an amazing array of Indian inspired desserts for guests at the campaign's biggest fundraising event of the year 'An Evening of Flavour'.
Chit Chaat Chai kicked off the 2015 Curry For Change Campaign with their first ever Supper Club event. Having held sell out pop-ups and market stalls across the country, it was a no brainer to combine two of the things that they love most, Food and Fundraising!
Chit Chaat Chai's first ever Curry For Change Supper Club was a sell out event feeding 30 hungry diners who helped to raise over £1,000 in ticket sales, silent auction proceeds and donations, of course over a generous serving of ridiculously delicious Indian street food Chaat and Chai!
Due to the overwhelming success of the event, Chit Chaat Chai went on to host many more Curry for Change Supper Clubs in 2015 and are now looking forward to kicking off the 2016 campaign with a bang!
Will & Jessie have supported Curry for Change for the last two years, holding huge curry nights at their local cricket club and raising over £700 each time (which was then DOUBLED by Natco)!
In 2014 they also won our fabulous compeitition of a cooking master class with Curry for Change patron Atul Kochhar.
"Cricket clubs and curries so hand in hand, so when our local cricket club's end of season party came around, it seemed like a great reason to host a Curry for Change evening and raise some money for a fantastic cause!"
