Early bird places sold out – last few places include a copy of the book. Shamil Thakrar is one of the co-founders of the wonderful Dishoom, and he joins us to celebrate the launch of the restaurants’ first cookbook, which holds the secrets to their much sought-after Bombay comfort food. In this charming and evocative book, you will discover how to make the Bacon Naan Roll, Black Daal, Okra Fries, Jackfruit Biryani, Chicken Ruby and Lamb Raan, along with Masala Chai, coolers and cocktails. As you learn to cook the Dishoom menu, you will also be taken on a day-long tour of south Bombay, peppered with much eating and drinking. You’ll discover the simple joy of early chai and omelette at Kyani and Co., of dawdling in Horniman Circle on a lazy morning, of eating your fill on Mohammed Ali Road, of strolling on the sands at Chowpatty at sunset or taking the air at Nariman Point at night.

Join us for a chance to sample some of the delicious recipes, while listening to Shamil tell his stories, and be transported to Dishoom’s most treasured corners of Bombay.
