JD Wetherspoon to launch The Curry Club; John Shrigley joins Manchester's Baráa

It's only rock ‘n' roll for John Shrigley

John Shrigley, whose CV includes a spell at the three-AA rosette Box Tree restaurant in Ilkley, West Yorkshire, has been appointed head chef at the Manchester bar and restaurant Baráa, owned by pop star Mick Hucknall. Shrigley plans to add classic British dishes to the existing Mediterranean, North African and Pacific Rim food offer.

Spice up those curry sales
