Food and Drink
Two versatile TV performers and food writers join forces to celebrate Indian food. Madhur Jaffrey, award-winning actress, TV presenter and bestselling cookery writer, is a world authority on Indian food, while Hardeep Singh Kohli is a TV reporter who was runner-up on the first series of BBC Masterchef and who went on to make two series for UKTV Food and publish his first book Indian Takeaway: A Very British Story.
Jaffrey is back on our screens in a major new series for the Good Food Channel, Madhur Jaffrey’s Curry Nation, which demonstrates how you can sample virtually the whole of Indian cuisine without leaving the British Isles. In the official book to tie in with the series, she showcases recipes with Punjabi, Goan, Parsi, Bengali and many other influences.
In Indian Takeaway, Glasgow-born Singh Kohli sets out to find his roots in India in what becomes a hilarious and moving tale. He has also won acclaim for his witty and engaging live cookery and chat show the Nearly Naked Chef, and has followed it up with his Indian Takeaway tour, in which he is seeking the best Indian takeaway in the UK.
This session forms part of a series by Oxford Gastronomica, Oxford Brookes University’s centre for the study of food, drink and culture.
