We're not sure if this will turn in to a food trend or not..(probably not). But new to the London foodie scene are - Vinda-chockie-loo cupcakes... and if you're unsure about the combination of chocolate curry and cupcakes not to worry - you can try them for free at Primrose Hill Market!

These Vinda-chockie-loo creations have been put together to celebrate National Curry Week and National Chocolate Week (9th-15th Oct). They incorporate the aromatic flavours of India with creamy variants of chocolate in light and oh-so-delicious sponges. So far so good..

Celebrating the launch of Chopped, the show that uses the unlikeliest pairings to bring together the tastiest dishes, Food Network has partnered with culinary wizards Flavourtown to create the Vinda-Chockie-Loo Trio.

The tantalising trio unites some of the key ingredients in Vindaloo – such as turmeric, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger and chilli – with the warm, smooth and buttery flavours of chocolate – including ganache, rich butter cream, chocolate truffles and even an award-winning brownie. And this magical creation wouldn’t be complete without a chilli chocolate unicorn cupcake; as fierce as its flavour blend!

The competitors on Chopped know all about unusual food combinations as they fight it out to create unique and delicious dishes over three rounds in each show to create an appetiser, entrée and dessert – using mystery ingredients based around different themes.

To try one of the gorgeous Vinda-Chockie-Loo cupcakes, Food Network and Flavourtown will be giving away 100 Golden Unicorn cupcakes on Saturday 14th October at Primrose Hill Market from 10AM to 11AM. They are going to go like hot cakes, so get there fast.

Phillip Luff, Managing Director, Scripps Networks Interactive, UK & EMEA said“Our team is food-obsessed and have absolutely loved creating this heavenly fusion of British favourites to launch the new series of Chopped, where the competitors get to bring together unusual flavour combinations in every episode.

Flavourtown’s Chief taster Mark Brooks said, “The idea of taking two polar cake opposites and turning them into utterly delicious bonkers cake flavours is what we do best and the Vinda-Chockie-Loo Trio is a testament to that! With a focus on flavour, we took all the best spices from the classic Vindaloo curry and combined them with one of the best chocolate and cocoa powders in the world, resulting in a one-of-a-kind creation.”
