Dishoom Loves. Issue XI.

The festive season is about to hit its stocking-clad stride. And while we’ll be Christmas jumper-wearing, mince pie-eating and last-minute shopping, we’ll be keeping a close eye out. Here’s our list of things to do in December (in between sips of Chai eggnog). 

We’re feeling proud reading:-

These Delicious Things, a cookbook filled with nostalgic stories of childhood, and delicious recipes from the UK’s top foodies, including our very own Chef Naved. All to support children living in food poverty.

We’re gifting our loved ones with:-

Anisha Parmar’s glinting new Jāli collection of jewellery and homeware. Anisha’s designs speak to her three-continent-spanning heritage, and this collection is inspired by the ornamental Jāli building facades found in South Asia.

We’re shaking off labels with:-

Bollyqueer, a dance company made by and for queer people. Escape the binary and embrace the joy of Bollywood at their free dance class, shaking and shimmying as the beautiful person you are.

We’re clutching our sides at:-

The latest show from India’s biggest stand-up comedian (and the first to win an Emmy), Vir Das. He’ll wow you with incisive insights and perfect comic timings, and win you over with unexpected vulnerability.

Permit Room Cambridge: A tribute to 1970s Bombay

Arched into the cobbled lane of Trinity Street, behind a mustard yellow door, an all-day bar-café cuts loose. Not to be confused with the buzzy bars in Dishoom cafés, this Permit Room is entirely other – a tribute to the way Bombay kicks back and cuts loose – a salute to the city’s permit rooms, beer bars and drinking holes.

June brings the promise of sun-drenched days – or monsoons – balmy nights and a smattering of first-class cultural happenings.

May has us buzzing. The scent of the fresh, juicy Alphonso mangoes, two long weekends, cultural exhibitions, new documentaries – there’s a lot to soak in.
