Trimdon Village Infant Schools Taste of India

Children from a local school tried their hand at cooking, the authentic way when they visited their village Indian restaurant.

Owner of the Cinnamon restaurant in Trimdon, Sabir Ahmed agreed to enable theirlocal school to experience how to cook traditional Indian food, along with their head chef, Shayer Miah.

The 20 children from Trimdon Village Infant School, all of whom are under eight years old, visited the restaurant, along with teachers and classroom assistants took a cookery master class from the head chef at the restaurant, Shayer Miah.

Sabir Ahmed told us the reasoning behind the visit:  “We wanted to ensure that thechildren understand that healthy, tasty Indian food has moved on from the way it used to be portrayed and ensure that it can be easily replicated at home.

“The children had a great time and were incredibly enthusiastic as well as very well behaved and patient.  They made chicken pakora and were over the moon when they got to eat them at the end.”

Mrs. Parnaby from Trimdon Village Infant School said:  “Our children were very excited and so were our teachers, who also got to sample the food they had made.  

It’s opportunities like this that allow our children to experience different cultures andwe all took something very positive away from the visit.”

Cinnamon restaurant opened in June this year and has been warmly welcomed by the locals and visitors alike.

CINNAMON – ADDING SOME SPICE TO TRIMDON

PRESS RELEASE

CINNAMON – ADDING SOME SPICE TO TRIMDON

Two Sunderland businessmen have put their 35 years experience in the hospitality trade to good use and recently opened a swish, contemporary Champagne bar and high class Indian restaurant in the region.

Owners and brothers Sabir Ahmed and Mohammed Miah have joined forces to open this new business, following a three month redevelopment of the building to turn it from a run-down bar / restaurant to a swish eatery and Champagne bar.

The Cinnamon Champagne bar and restaurant in Trimdon Village, Durham is a beautiful stand-alone building on Salter’s Lane offering both visitors and regulars a high class eatery and watering hole.

Joint owner Mohammed, 36 from Sunderland told us:

“We have literally put our hearts, soles, blood and tears in this place and we’ve been positively overwhelmed with the response from the local people and visitors to the area.

“We’ve only been open for ten weeks now and as well as putting on charity nights for local causes; we seem to have made a big impact on the hospitality scene in the area.”

The venue, which was once a public house and run down restaurant has been completely transformed and now boasts a spacious restaurant area, light, airy conservatory as well as a private function room.  The restaurant can seat 120 diners and already has a booming take-away trade, keeping their staff well and truly on their toes.

The business has created 11 new jobs in an area with high unemployment, from waiting and bar staff, cocktail mix-ologists, kitchen hands and chefs.

Sabir concluded: 

“We are determined to make a great success of this business as we want to grow until we’re open all day, every day.  We are keen to expand the workforce and add to the local economy as well as giving something back to the proud folk of Trimdon.

“If we can continue to grow at the pace of the last nine weeks, then we’re definitely not going to fail, as we’ve literally not stopped.  I’m in desperate need of a day off, but that seems like a dream at present!” he joked.

Cinnamon Spice Club and Champagne Bar is situated on Salters Lane, Trimdon, Durham, telephone 01429 883 942.  www.cinnamon-club.com.

Sunderland brothers redevelop run-down Durham pub into high class Indian restaurant

Two brothers with a combined 35 years experience in the hospitality trade have invested £250,000 in developing a high class Indian restaurant and champagne bar in a Durham village.
Sunderland-based businessmen Sabir Ahmed and Mohammed Miah have spent three months redeveloping a run-down bar on Salter’s Lane in Trimdon to create The Cinnamon Club.
The two brothers have joined forces to convert the detached former pub into a swanky eatery and bar - creating 11 jobs in the process.
Joint owner Mohammed Miah, 36, from Washington, said: “We have literally put our hearts, souls, blood and tears in this place and we’ve been positively overwhelmed with the response from the local people and visitors to the area.
“We’ve only been open for 10 weeks now and as well as putting on charity nights for local causes, we seem to have made a big impact on the hospitality scene in the area.”
The venue, which was once a public house and restaurant, has been completely transformed to accommodate a spacious restaurant area and conservatory as well as a private function room. The restaurant can seat 120 diners and already has a booming take-away trade.
Mohammed and Sabir have hired waiting and bar staff, cocktail mixologists, kitchen hands and chefs.
The venue has become part of a stable of restaurants in the region all belonging to the same family. Sister eateries include The Capital and Spice Lounge in Durham City, and Village Spice in Sunderland.
Mr Ahmed added: “We are determined to make a great success of this business as we want to grow until we’re open all day, every day. We are keen to expand the workforce and add to the local economy as well as giving something back to the proud folk of Trimdon.
“If we can continue to grow at the pace of the last nine weeks, then we’re definitely not going to fail, as we’ve literally not stopped. I’m in desperate need of a day off, but that seems like a dream at present!”
