As Cyrus Todiwala was one of our first customers in 2005 we are very proud to continue to work with him, and to bring a Khaadraas Club, Special Heritage Potato Dinner to Cafe Spice Namaste, London on February 19th. In an interview with Lucy Cyrus said “I was one of their first customers! I needed more choice of varieties of potatoes, and that is when I found them, and I have worked with them ever since.
At the moment we are cooking with Pink Fir Apple, and Mayan Gold, and over the years we have worked with most varieties. They add something different to my menu.
Every 4 -5 weeks we hold a special Khaadraas Club dinner at Cafe Spice Namaste. Khaadraas Club, literally translated, means the ‘Greedy Pigs or Greedy Gourmand’s Club’. Parsees love to eat, and this is when I feature heirloom Parsee recipes from my mother’s and aunt’s cupboards and drawers in Bombay and India. Pervin also has some recipes up her sleeve which all adds to the mix. At first, this supper club appealed mostly to Parsees but now it has grown to encompass non-Parsees as well. Pervin and I are delighted that we’ve helped to put Parsee food on the culinary map. That accomplishment means a lot to us.
On February 19th we shall be cooking with as many of the varieties of Carroll’s Heritage Potatoes as possible creating lots of unusual dishes, and there will also be a desert made with Arran Victory!”
