We have always loved sharing the magic of Diwali with our friends and families.
On Saturday 23rd October we honoured the special occasion of Diwali with an atmospheric twilight celebration under the West Handyside Canopy in King’s Cross. There was extremely cool live music (huge thanks to Sabiyha Rasheed, Vibs Bhatia and Vikaash, Alisha Kadir and headliner Shammi Pithia and his band), fantastic street food and marvellous entertainment for visitors of all ages.
We captured the magical afternoon to share with all those that couldn’t make it. And if you were there… spot yourself!
During this long, dark month, you may find much-needed comfort in this Pineapple & Black Pepper Crumble recipe. It’s almost too easy to make, and will warm, soothe and satiate. (It can also be made vegan with simple substitutions.) May the vibrant pineapple inspire joyful memories of faraway places and warmer climes!
IN THESE DYING DAYS of ’21 I am here again, dear reader, at the bar in our restaurant in Shoreditch. I am the stubbled and scruffy regular, squinting at the bartender through slightly wonky glasses, brooding over the year gone by.
Christmas is one of our very favourite times of the year, and its jovial spirit is upon us. Lights are twinkling, the scent of mulled wine is wafting through the air and many parties are afoot. Feast in our cafés, join us for an evening of Christmas carols, enjoy your favourite Dishoom delights in the comfort of your home, or allow our Store to cater for your party and gifting needs.
Christmas is fast approaching, but there's still time to decide on gifts for friends, family, neighbours and the like. Fortunately, the Dishoom Store stocks a range of extremely lovely products to suit all manner of recipients (though you may be sorely tempted to keep them for yourself!)
Dishoom will mark this joyous festival of light on Thursday 28th October 2021, with an all-day event fuelled by finest vegetarian fare and featuring a wonderful line-up of South Asian talent. To read on and to purchase tickets, kindly click here.
