Last week, I had my first trip to London in over two years to cook and appear on This Morning. Pre-Covid, a lot of my work involved regularly going back and forth to London, and to come back after the strange times we’ve been living in certainly felt like the start of a new chapter of life.

Like many of my previous visits, this one was fleeting, though with just enough time to try a restaurant or two in between appointments. We had a little celebration lunch for the release of my new cookbook and ate at Kricket, an Indian-inspired restaurant with small sharing plates like crispy Keralan chicken, brown butter paratha and crispy samphire pakoras with tamarind and date chutney — totally addictive eating.
