We are thrilled to be able to host Mira’s book launch at this year’s Cookbook festival. Mira will be talking to us about Ayurveda, the traditional Hindu practice of medicine, whilst we enjoy a sumptuous three course Indian banquet with recipes from her book launched that day, Prajna.
Indian summer’s salad
Masala aubergine on sourdough
Beetroot carpaccio with tangy tadka
Chimmichurri potatoes with spiced yoghurt
Tamarind cauliflower steak
Autumn coconut curry bowl
Rose chai with baked apples filled with hot cardamom fudge and coconut
On arrival you will be offered a caramel cooler (her refreshing non-alcoholic aperitif from her book) and, as usual for our supper clubs, this is a BYO event – so bring along beers, wines or your favourite tipple. This is all happening in the Cookbook festival marquee on Turnham Green Terrace – how exciting! Mira is well known in London and beyond with her own cafe, Chai – Kingly Court in the heart of Soho. Mira is a delight chatting about food, life and well-being whilst never compromising on flavours or good food.
As usual the Cookbook festival team will be cooking with Mira and I can tell you that the flavours of her dishes are intoxicatingly delicious. Enjoy Mira’s food, chat with her and enjoy the authentic flavours of her families recipes that they have been cooking for generations.
Tickets £35 – three courses, aperitif and good company!
