Hardeep Singh Kohli loves many things in life – but none more than food. He loves to eat it, he loves to cook it. So when he decided to travel round 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 round 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?

Hilarious, strange and true, Indian Takeaway is a book for everyone who loves to cook, or longs to travel, or for anyone who wants to spend a few hours in the company of one singularly warm-hearted and entertaining man.
