He has presented many other gardening shows and documentaries. He will talk tonight for 20 minutes about his latest book and BBC series about Islamic gardens, Paradise Gardens: A Journey Through India and Turkey to Morocco and Spain, with a particular emphasis on the Indian leg. The book is beautifully illustrated with photographs taken by Derry Moore, 12th Earl of Drogheda and one of the greatest photographers of his age. He is well known for his photography of gardens, houses and architectural interiors reproduced in magazines such as Architectural Digest, Vogue, and Town and Country.

The menu will be overseen by Jaffrey, a world authority on Indian food, an award-winning actress and a bestselling cookery writer. Her first book, An Invitation to Indian Cookery, was published in 1973 and her series for BBC television Madhur Jaffrey’s Indian Cookery made her a household name. She has appeared in more than 20 films, including Merchant Ivory’s Heat and Dust, and written more than 15 cookery books.
