Following the success of his other live shows, Nearly Naked Chef and Chat Masala, Hardeep Singh Kohli is inviting audiences in Fife and Tayside to sample his brand new show, Indian Takeaway.
The country is obsessed with curry. That much we know. But how do Hardeep’s home-cooked curries — the recipes inspired by his mum and his gran —compare to the local Indian Takeaways we love and adore? Let’s find out!
At the beginning of each show Hardeep will order a takeaway live on stage for delivery to the theatre, having selected a local Indian takeaway from audience suggestions submitted via HardeepLive.com. He will then order an audience member’s favourite meal. Whilst waiting for the order to arrive Hardeep cooks his own food.
Two curries with side orders of delicious cooking tips and lip-smacking comedy. What’s not to like?
Commenting on his trip to the east coast he said, “It’s always very special for me. If it weren’t for Dundee, I’d probably never have been Scottish! My dad trained in Dundee and it was there he fell in love with the Scots and Scotland. “So it’s coming home for me in more ways than you might think!”
Hardeep’s love of all things culinary has led to him touring the UK for the last two years with his hit shows The Nearly Naked Chef and Chat Masala which have both been a huge hits with audiences.
He was also runner-up on the first series of Celebrity Masterchef which led to two series for UKTV Food, New British Kitchen and Chefs and the City.
