Flew down here last night after a short, two-day stopover with family in Singapore. Alyona and kids are enjoying in Singapore. I will spend this week in UK and Bath for the promotion of How to Cook Indian and then join them.
First things first.
May 23 – This morning meeting in Abrams & Chronicle Books office to streamline the whole week’s events. Then a late afternoon interview with Food Writers Guild. Rest of the day, probably catch up with my favourite places in London!
May 24 – BBC Radio 4 Stations interview followed by a live telephonic interview for Talk Radio Europe, Spain. Then a late afternoon train ride to Bath where I have a cooking demo in Topping & Co. bookshop from 7.45 pm to 9 pm.
Be back in London on Wednesday – May 25 – afternoon and meet up with sales and marketing team in London.
May 26 – Thursday is packed. First, meeting with ‘Saturday Kitchen’ TV Show followed with a demo at the Selfridges Food Hall, Oxford Street. In this Selfridges Ocean Campaign, all the chefs are going to use only fish (approved by the Marine Conservation Society) and this event too has been created by Abrams and Chronicle Books. I have 40 minutes scheduled (1.50 pm to 2.30 pm) to demonstrate Mackerel Curry.
May 27 – Radio interview with BBC Asian Network and later an interview with Foodepedia.co.uk.
May 29 – Sunday. Event is at Hampton Court Foodies Festival in Surrey and my demo recipe is Kerala Fish Moilee.
Fish, to think of it, is being chosen for the demos because it is quick to cook and healthy. How about some recipes for you then?
Till I write again.
