Born in 1969, Hardeep Singh Kohli grew up in Scotland where, whilst studying at law school, he worked at the Citizen's Theatre and managed various restaurants in Glasgow. Indian Takeaway is his first book.
Hardeep Singh Kohli loves many things in life -but none more than food. He loves to eat, he loves to cook. So when he decided to travel around India in search of his roots, what seemed the obvious thing to take with him? Not a Lonely Planet guide. Not a BBC camera team. No! It was shepherd's pie and Yorkshire pudding. Indian Takeaway is the hilarious story of Hardeep's attempts to cook his way around India, dishing up very British meals for the people he meets. How will a Goan garage mechanic, a Delhi socialite or a Mysore hippie cope with fish and chips, or a Full English Breakfast? Will they survive to tell the tale? And will Hardeep find a kitchen to call home?
