By Vivek’s side will be Kricket’s Will Bowlby, who trained at Cinnamon Kitchen in 2014 before opening his first pop-up site, followed by three restaurants in Soho and now Brixton, and the soon-to-be-open Kricket Television Centre; alongside old friendCyrus Todiwala OBE DL from Café Spice Namaste, Mr Todiwala’s Kitchen and The Park Café. Asma Khan, who owns Darjeeling Express in Kingly Court and author of debut cookbook will also be cooking, alongside Sriram Aylur from Quilon – the only Southern Indian restaurant in the world to have a Michelin star. Finalising the line-up is talented chef, food writer and author Ravinder Bhogal, best known for Jikoni which opened to a rapturous reception in 2016.
Each chef will bring something new to the table, having grown up in different places and trained in different environments. They will each cook two dishes that best reflects their own style and what they feel encapsulates the Indian dining scene from the past decade.
Expect flavoursome, perfectly spiced dishes that pack a punch including samphire pakoras with date and tamarind chutney made by Will; fish cakes with tomato chutney from Cyrus; Safed Murgh ka Korma by Asma; an old-fashioned style of parsee roast lamb, tellicherry seafood biryani from Sriram; stir-fried seasonal game by Vivek; and coffee ragsullas with mascarpone ice cream made by Ravinder amongst much more!
The night will begin with a canapé and cocktail reception, followed by the chefs’ dishes served family-style on tables of 10. Tickets to this unique, one-off event are £70pp and can be purchased here:
