He fought off tough competition from Rukar Abdullah, TajAbdul winner of  Shropshire councils curry chef of the  yearUddin, at Bayston Hill, near Shrewsbury; and Amjad Ali,from Bridgnorth. Mr Husen said: “I’m absolutely delighted. We’ve always been very proud of our food here at Cafe Saffron and it’s a great honour to be named the best curry chef in Shropshire. “I was up against some great guys in the final and the competition was intense. I’m glad that I prevailed.”Mr Hussen also paid tribute to his customers and added: “We’ve got very loyal customers at Cafe Saffron who have been with us for years. I’d like to thank them for their support and, now that we’ve won, I hope they’ll continue to remain loyal for many years.” Modern Cafe Saffron opened in 2001 and prides itself on creating Indian dishes with a modern twist. Mr Hussen has honed his technique by working alongside some of the best restaurants in India and Bangladesh. The contest was organised by Shropshire Council’s assistant director for public protection, Andy Goldsmith, with help from Sean McNulty, a senior chef lecturer, at Radbrook College,
in Shrewsbury. Mr Goldsmith said: “We had some great entries and all four finalists deserve
every credit.” Mr McNulty said: “It wasan interesting event and we hope it will promote curry houses in Shropshire.”The four finalists had just 45 minutes to create a main course, side dish and rice
during yesterday’s cook-off at Radbrook College. Bruce McMichael, from Taste Shropshire, who was a
member of the judgingpanel, said: “We were dazzled by the combinations on offer. The chefs showed
great skill in creating very exciting dishes.
