Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Opinion - by Mike Ben­nett mben­nett@thek­m­

THE Smeeth-based Calde­cott Foun­da­tion has teamed up with one of Bri­tain’s top In­dian chefs in a joint fund-rais­ing and ed­u­ca­tional ven­ture.

Cyrus Todi­wala, ex­ec­u­tive chef, TV celebrity and au­thor, has agreed to host a spe­cial tu­tored din­ner - de­scribed as an “In­dian gas­tro­nomic ex­pe­ri­ence” - at his multi-award winning Café Spice Na­masté in Lon­don on Oc­to­ber 30 for 130 Calde­cott sup­port­ers.

The Calde­cott Foun­da­tion pro­vides res­i­den­tial homes and ed­u­ca­tion for chil­dren who have suf­fered cru­elty and mis­treat­ment.

Mr Todi­wala has al­ready given a mas­ter­class in cook­ery and ta­ble ser­vice to some of Calde­cott’s chil­dren.

He said: “It’s great to work along­side th­ese in­cred­i­bly bright chil­dren, and help out such an im­por­tant cause which is so close to my heart.”

The chil­dren will be on duty in the kitchens and restau­rant at the tu­tored din­ner, which has been ar­ranged with the help of Cater­plus, Calde­cott’s ca­ter­ing sup­pli­ers.

They sug­gested the link-up with Mr Todi­wala, who has ap­peared reg­u­larly on TV cook­ery shows and writes for na­tional news­pa­pers and mag­a­zines.

At the tu­tored din­ner he will ex­plain the in­gre­di­ents and skills which go into pre­par­ing each of his Indo-Euro­pean fu­sion style dishes.

Calde­cott head of fund-rais­ing Sa­man­tha Scott, said: “This is a unique part­ner­ship for us, com­bin­ing fund-rais­ing and train­ing for our youngsters, and we are thrilled to have teamed up with Cyrus and Cater­plus.

“Tick­ets for the din­ner are sell­ing fast, and for those who at­tend, it prom­ises to be a meal and an ex­pe­ri­ence which will live long in the mem­ory.”
