Bradford's City Park will be taken over for the next three days by the World Curry Festival.
Restaurants from all over Yorkshire will be exhibiting a selection of their menus while the stage will host musicians from the city,
Traditional foods from Jamaica, Kashmir, India, Pakistan and Malaysia among others will be available to sample.
In addition to tasting some freshly prepared curries, samosas, bhajis, and naans, visitors will be able to watch the experts at work as celebrity chefs reveal the secrets to perfecting their favourite dishes.
Celebrity Masterchef runner-up Hardeep Singh Kohli told BCB that food can bring people together.
"Curry can be a genuine meeting place for people from different communities. Food's about society, you can sit down and eat with anyone. If the food's good you'll be surprised as to who you'll make connections with. That's what this festival is about."
The festival runs until Sunday 23rd June and entry is free.
