Hosting first-class get-togethers to celebrate the year’s biggest festivals is one of our very favourite things to do. Recently, we had the privilege of having hundreds of you join us to mark the joyous festival of light that is Diwali, and now, the jovial spirit of Christmas is upon us. Lights are twinkling, the scent of mulled wine is wafting through the air and many parties are afoot, and we are thrilled to invite you to another special event.
On Thursday 16th December from 6pm – 8pm, we'll be taking over Amazing Grace, a wonderful new live music venue, and renovated seventeenth century church, in London Bridge for a fantastically festive evening of hearty Christmas carolling.
Led by a wonderful choir and accompanied by the piano, many classic carols and festive favourites will be belted out. Friends and family are all invited to come along, sing their hearts out and leave feeling warm, festive, and full of mince pies! There's room for singers of all timbres and tones, so we do hope you'll join us.
All tickets are £5 and proceeds will be donated to Magic Breakfast, one of our truly wonderful charity partners who do life-changing work providing free morning meals to children who may otherwise go hungry.
We often find it too easy to hurtle through the days, in an attempt to outpace the bustling city – be it London or Bombay – which always seems to be running away like a steam-engine train on a rickety track. Occasionally, it does us good to pause for thought, to disembark the carriage and sit on the platform awhile.
How does one create a space where people can truly connect over food? How can a host make their guests feel relaxed, at ease, and suitably cared for? Since launching our all-new Dishoom Crockery, we have been pondering the answers to these questions even more than usual. We recently discussed them with Creative Director - and frequent dinner party hostess - Kirthanaa Naidu when we invited her to create a first-class tablescape in our Canary Wharf café.
Each year, the spring equinox – when day and night are equal length – marks a transition in earth’s relationship with the sun. This event, sacred to many cultures throughout history, today thrives as a new year celebration for hundreds of millions.
In Bombay, London, and throughout the South Asian diaspora, you’ll find many folks of the Zoroastrian faith (amongst others) celebrating this new year, or Navroz as we like to call it.
A nurturing presence, neatly packed lunches, and homes that exude warmth – radiating from the walls and from the person within. In uncertain times, we look to the motherly figures in our lives for gentle guidance, affection and life’s most important lessons. For those looking to show gratitude this Mother’s Day, new curiosities have appeared on the Dishoom Store. We hope to impart a little inspiration as we share gifts to guarantee warm smiles.
