The Arctic Curry Club

The Arctic Curry Club


For my whole life I had been looking for home. But why would that be in a place that I’d left? Perhaps I had to keep moving forward in order to find it…’

Soon after upending her life to accompany her boyfriend Ryan to the Arctic, Maya realises it’s not all Northern Lights and husky sleigh rides. Instead, she’s facing sub-zero temperatures, 24-hour darkness, crippling anxiety – and a distant boyfriend as a result.

In her loneliest moment, Maya opens her late mother’s recipe book and cooks Indian food for the first time. Through this, her confidence unexpectedly grows – she makes friends, secures a job as a chef, and life in the Arctic no longer freezes her with fear.

But there’s a cost: the aromatic cuisine rekindles memories of her enigmatic mother and her childhood in Bangalore. Can Maya face the past and forge a future for herself in this new town? After all, there’s now high demand for a Curry Club in the Arctic, and just one person with the know-how to run it…

A tender and uplifting story about family, community, and finding where you truly belong – guaranteed to warm your heart despite the icy setting!

Our Review

The Arctic Curry Club is enchanting, hilarious and richly detailed. It is the perfect festive read.

Maya is not suited for life in the arctic but when her boyfriend moves there Maya feels she has little choice. Their new friends are all sporty and enjoy going out in the cold, but she can barely go outside without suffering from a panic attack.

From the blurb it might seem like this is a light and fluffy book, which it is to some extent. However, it also has some depth to It and deals with issues surrounding anxiety with surprising compassion.

“My mouth was dry and my stomach began to cramp, making it even harder to think.

Code Red.

Code Red.”

The description of the dishes created by Maya in this book made my mouth water and I spent a lot of the book feeling incredibly hungry.

Dani Redd has written an incredible book and I suggest you buy a copy when it is published.
