Anuvab Pal Live 'A fringe event of the Ginger & Spice Festival 2022'
Thursday 22nd September
“This stand-up show will begin with The British Empire in India but go into what connects Britain and India today- especially the food. And by food, we can’t ignore the journey of spices. What happened when spices came to Britain? What indeed is, the perfect chicken tikka masala? Why have certain British dishes from the Downton Abbey era still survived in India?
India’s influence on Britain today is vast – from yoga to Goa to Dishoom. Is this spiritual wellness stuff any good or nonsense?
Also with Market Drayton being the hometown of Lord Clive, what set him off to leave Shropshire and come to my home town? And thanks to him, I’m back to his hometown 250 years later, speaking his language. We need to talk about Clive!” Anuvab Pal
